I've been asked to rewrite my job description. I basically run the network/telephone system/provide all the IT support. I have a boss who is "Head of ICT" and a teacher.
I have put "Network Manager" as job title, but there seems to be an issue with this as I do not manage people.
Do you have to manage people to be a network manager? I do manage the consultants/any IT companies who come in to do stuff etc.
The day to day running of the whole school network is down to me basically.
Just wonder what folk think.
Sorry if posted to wrong area - this is my first post.
I would stick with "Network Manager"as you "manage" the network dont you?
I think all of these would be valid - Network Manager, IT Manager, Systems Administrator etc.

Director of Network Support, just to get the word director in there?
Chief Technology Officer?
Director in Chief of Systems Administration and Learning Technologist Project Officer is my personal favourite
Job Title: GOD!
What's wrong with Director of ICT, or ICT Manager or something similar?
To me however, he doesn't need a title and he is one of the nicest blokes you could a) meet, or b) have as a boss.
Please note : the above comment in no way is connected with the fact it is my Annual Performance Review tomorrow!
I have to admit I get peeved when I see people whoes job title is 'Systems Manager'. I was always told a systems manager managed several seperate and distinct networks and, well, systems. Not a single school LAN.
Some schools think SIMS.NET qualifies as a single system alone, VLE another & then the network - not sure what definition of system they use, it seems interchangable - sounds good though.
CTO or Director of ICT are great vanity titles for the CV...
I think on my job description it says something like "Technical ICT Support" ... but there's only me.
TBH I refer to myself as the IT Technician most of the time as it doesn't sound too important and helps sales weasels to lose interest in me. However when dealing with a stroppy parent recently, who was definitely in the wrong, I promoted myself to Network Manager.
My HT thinks it's funny that I vary my job title to suit the audience and the occasion!
Systems infrastructure director... Sounds so nice I might give that one to myself when it cones to rewriting my job spec!
