ICT Network Manager - Wednesday 2nd August 2017

Scale: PO2-6 (£30,153 - £33,436) per annum

37 hours per week all year round

We are looking to appoint an ICT Network Manager for an immediate start. This is an exciting opportunity within our Multi Academy Trust, which currently has one member academy but aims to grow by 1-2 academies in each of the next 3-4 years. The position will be based at The Halifax Academy, the only 4-16 all-through school in Calderdale. In September 2017 we will have 1,160 pupils learning within this academy across five buildings on the Wellesley Park site, and this will grow to 1,420 by 2020 when our new primary phase building is full.

The successful candidate will be required to lead and manage a team to procure, operate, maintain and develop ICT systems and services. The post holder will be responsible for managing the network, the technical infrastructure, its support services, and to ensure the best and most fit-for-purpose ICT systems are reliably available to underpin effective teaching and learning.

In the wider trust when member schools propose to join Impact MAT, the postholder will contribute to the due diligence process by reviewing ICT systems and evaluating technical risk, and coordinating on-going support to member academies according to their individual needs. This really is an excellent opportunity to join a growing organisation.

In return we can offer:

working as part of a creative and supportive team, who are determined and driven in our mission to achieve the very best for our pupils

effective, supportive, and dynamic leadership

an opportunity to develop and grow within an expanding Trust

enthusiastic pupils who are keen to make outstanding progress
