This is my current job at the school, and is becoming vacant as of half term as I am moving on to another institution who needed me ASAP, hence the short recruitment timeframe. We are well aware this doesn’t leave us a huge amount of time, but don’t be put off if you’re currently on a notice period that would go beyond half term as we have contingency plans in the works for this and would discuss arrangements for handover with individual candidates. We intend to shortlist immediately after the closing date and interview promptly.
The successful candidate will be taking over a well-resourced network of about 160 Windows 8.1 workstations and 16 virtualised servers across 3 physical hosts (mix of Server 2008 R2 through Server 2012 R2). The workstations are mostly desktops, with one class set of 20 laptops and a handful of staff laptops. We also have a class set of 20 iPads for use in Reception - Year 4.
Formal enquiries and applications should be made to the school Bursar: details in the full job ad attached. If you would like to have an informal discussion about the technical side of the job, please feel free to send me a PM and we can arrange a quick chat.
