    Knowledge of server virtualisation (particularly Hyper-V) would be advantageous!

    Obnoxiously expensive. Also, ARK as a whole doesn't use it - they use Hyper-V (hence my comment).

    It's a new building with a substantial amount of IT infrastructure going in. The NM post covers the Primary and the Secondary.

    Do you work for Ark?

    Edit: Sorry reading your profile I see that you do.

    IT Infrastructure Manager
    Company Represented ARK Academies
    Company URL http://www.arkonline.org

    What is the relation of the NM to the Overall ARK Infrastructure? How does the infrastructure in each school function, do they have their own domain, own servers etc or is that hosted from your data centre? How does Line management from the School back into the ARK Hierarchy work?

    Thanks for answering any questions.

    The academy will have its own domain and infrastructure (which is a part of the wider ARK Schools Active Directory forest) with server infrastructure on-site. It's currently hosted at our datacentre, but once the new building is in place (September) a pile of physical server kit will be installed on-site.

    ARK has a central IT team that provides additional second and third line technical support, MIS support, software development and project management resource.

    When I was reading the job spec for it, looks more like a Senior Techie role, not a NM...............how much control do the Network Managers have at the Ark Schools?

    I don't know the organisation but I know the area (used to have a centre just round the corner). You're walking distance from Wembley stadium so when the development in that area is complete it will be a really good place to work (it's not bad now). Tube station is close and there are reasonably good roads. If you want open space, Fryent country park (Fryent Country Park) and Brent Reservoir (Welsh Harp Reservoir - much nicer than the name suggests!) are close by and if you want a supermarket then Asda is just a short walk away.

    I would say approx £29k to £35k, see here (click on NJC Salary 2009-10, which opens up an Excel doc).

    That may be taking into consideration London Weighting Allowance since it's in Wembley...
