    ICT Support Team Setup

    Do any of your institutions have either a Senior Technician or Assistant Network Manager situated between the NM and the technicians, someone with supervisor responsibilities?

    Just wondered what the setup was like elsewhere.

    Cheers.

    Historically we've worked that way with an Assistant NM. We had the NM in a wider-reaching role with the Assistant NM undertaking more general day to day supervision of technicians / ensuring things were logged etc.

    At the min we've not got an Assistant NM position due to changes and promotions - set up is currently a Head of IT Services (imagine a cross between a non-teaching supervisory/strategic NM with some Director of IT type roles) line managing the NM, a Senior Technician and a Technician. In this scenario the Head of IT Services and NM work closely and both manage the lower team.

    Two senior technicians? Is that by virtue of experience and career progression? Is one more 'senior' than the other?

    Cheers.

    NM > Senior Tech > Tech and part timer. Then there is me and my boss who sit outside the tech support structure but help out.

    Here we are Network Manager > Assistant Network Manager (me) > technician....although I am higher in the hierarchy that the IT Tech, I have no supervisor or line managemenet responsibilities (according to my recent ish job re-evaluation).
