    Talking Network Manager - Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire

    The day has finally come where my job is up for grabs. It's a regular Network Manager job looking after all the IT and related systems in a largish secondary school and sixth form. The shiny school website at Baines School Nil Sine Labore will tell you more about the place.

    As you can imagine, all the usual bells and whistles are in place and things tend to tick along nicely. I've even got cabling diagrams, test results and documentation for things!

    A quick list of some of the technologies used:
    • Windows - Server 2008R2 and 7
    • Macs
    • XenServer
    • XenApp
    • Citrix Secure Gateway
    • Sun Rays
    • Systems Center
    • FEP (plus the lovely Sophos for protecting the Macs)
    • Lync - including Enterprise Voice
    • Exchange - with Exchange UM
    • SQL Server
    • SIMS
    • Smoothwall - a very nice UTM
    • BlueSocket managed wireless
    • HP switches throughout
    • EMC AX100s
    • Sun/Oracle S7110s
    • Sun/Oracle SL24 autoloader
    • Approx 350 client devices
    • BYOC scheme for sixth form students


    It is a very varied job and you will be given quite a bit of freedom to do what you want. Your first job will even be choosing a new apprentice! All the printers are leased and pay-per-click too so if they go wrong you just ring and someone turns up to fix them

    I cannot confirm payscales or other details yet as the job hasn't been advertised. The post is available from mid-September.

    If you want to ask any more questions about the set up or school, post questions below. If you think you might be interested, email your CV to amk@baines.lancs.sch.uk

    Could you please keep non-job-related questions in the thread at Ric_ moving on (split from job post)

    EDIT - Email address updated since I am no longer there

    I wouldn't like to because they may decide to change it. I will know more next week once I have a better chat with the headteacher.

    I would suggest that you send your CV to register an interest and add a note asking me to send you salary details, etc. as soon as they are available.

    Hey Ric,

    Do you have a rough idea as to when the advert will be live for this job, and if the job will be posted on the school website?

    Oliver.

    The school is currently assessing its options so that they end up with the best level of service possible... I'm obviously that amazing they are worried that they won't be able to replace me

    I suggest sending me your CV to register an interest. I have 8 CVs already.

    Clearly The Wesfield Centre is cheaper than a new Ric!

    Sadly I've only just popped my head up for air after the summer and missed this whole thread! Is the school done and dusted now or is the post still open/under discussion? I'd love to be able to move back closer to home and Lancashire is close enough to Southport for me

    AFAIK, no decision has been made so simply send your CV in. I have updated the email address above.
