    Job Description

    I need some help [ for my mental state it's ok, I'm on meds ] - it's for my job description.
    I need some fancy phrases - you know, all the stuff that makes HR feel all warm inside. So come on, amaze. Bonus points for really sexy ones.
    Anything related to IT and Network....

    Being sensible, how about:
    "facilitating"
    "project managing"
    "technical architect for..."
    "budgetary expertise"
    "exposition of cloud data"
    "devising" (not writing)
    "innovated" (Yuck!)
    "developing"
    "recommending"
    "analysing"

  8. Thanks to witch from:

    Well, you did ask for words to impress HR.... since when has the truth got in the way of a good story? In any case, the whole point of planning & project management is knowing when you are going to miss your target dates

    My current role description on LinkedIn is awash with such buzzwords if anything comes in handy:

    "My role is to provide or source the full spectrum of IT-related services to support the school in the technological issues that it faces. This includes systems administration and development, technical support and managing the support team, training, procurement, budget management and strategic planning.

    Acting as the senior technologist within the school, my role has been to drive forward innovation in new technologies while managing the impact, highlighting potential issues and creating realistic expectations, generating a vision for technology within the school and working with teaching leaders to develop their vision for technology-supported education. Projects in this regard include the adoption of electronic registration, a parental engagement portal, the introduction of pupil voting devices to support learning, the move to server virtualisation and a comprehensive backup and Disaster Recovery strategy offering five levels of data protection within budgetary limitations. On the technical side, I have maintained a strong focus on automation through Group Policy and bespoke scripting to manage and develop the kind of system that allows for IT staff to be freed up to focus on innovation, both technical and pedagogical. A strict approach to incident resolution within the scope of broader systems management principles facilitates this.

    When staffing budgets were tight, I have also been responsible in this role for the full delivery of a two-year IT Apprenticeship course, leading and managing a young apprentice to add value to the department."
