    Who works full time?

    Hi all,
    The network manager here is asking me to see how many other ICT staff members work ‘Full Time’ (compared to Part Time/Pro Rata) at their place of work and for those who do how they justify the extra working hours.
    Many thanks,
    James

    The whole team is full time here.

    I don't know how we'd manage otherwise.

    Thanks guys
    Would it possible to get some reasons specifily why you work full time and what you do with the extra time.
    At the moment the NM is looking for a way to justify why she should work full time.

    Well.... no, not really.

    There's always something to do whether it's a slow PC or WSUS not updating properly or someone's whiteboard is not doing what it should or someone can't find a printer or some service has stopped running on the server..... or...or.....

    It's a costant drip feed of tasks, either scheduled or fire brigade! The network simply wouldn't run, and teachers couldn't teach to full capacity without constant IT support of one form or another.

    Much the same here.

    The network has to be on fire before [paid] overtime will be authorized!

    I think during term time it's common sense to work full time. During the holidays i'm mainly here to support our admin and finance team, also spend a lot of time working on the stuff i just cannot do during term time, server work etc.

    1 Network manager (Full time 37 hours + 2.5 hours paid OT at lunch),
    2 Technicians (one of them me) Same hours as above, but I am Term Time only.

    We get more 'real' work done when the teachers/students aren't here than any other time. Simply because it's very hard to run a new network cable, or install a new whiteboard, or refit an intellidesk when there's 30 kids in the room.

    Plus things like full room rebuilds/software installs take a lot of time, and students/teachers don't like it when you decom a classroom for a day to rebuild it.

    Term time only here meaning that unfortunately some things never get done.

    3 members (Junior Technician, Deputy Network Manager and ICT Manager).

    About 650 students 11-16 and then about 400 in a shared sixth form (technicaly half of them are our students).

    About 50 classrooms throughout the school, all with smartboards.
    6 ICT suites, plus music and DT ICT areas with bother have other 20 pcs each.
    6th form study area with 20 PCs.
    Teacher laptops for most full time teachers (probably about 70 or them).
    Loads of servers at the moment, we're moving to virtual setup.
    Wireless throughout most of our buildings (mostly unmanaged at present).
    Probably about 40 office computers.
    Printers in every department office.

    The summertime is primarily used for big infastructure upgrades. This summer we added 2 new ESX servers and a SAN. We also vlaned our selves off from our partner school (which was project we lead), and finaly started using DHCP. Installed 20 pcs into our music department.
