    Russ,

    We are not happy with the expansion of our JD to include areas outside of IT, no mention of the development work we do with website and various Open Source software. Our school has a heavy IT presence with circa 8 servers 400 PCs 150 laptops IWB in every classroom etc etc. The development is not covered at all.

    If your not happy with it then you shouldn't have signed it !
    The job description is doing to form the basis of the type of work you do and the amount you get paid. If there are aspects of your job that are omitted from the new job description then you won't get paid for it in future. I suspect that development/procurement of future systems is probably weighted quite heavily in a job evaluation. Had you not signed it I would recommend that you appeal the evaluation.

    It was signed as acceptance of the pay rise and holiday entitlement (which is clearly meant to be days and not weeks)

    The actual job description is still very much up for negotiation. In any event the number of mistakes on this document makes it very difficult to properly understand all the aspects of the description.
