Frustrated by a lack of career progression in Education IT?  This could be the job for you!  We seek an experienced and innovative Senior IT Technician to be responsible for the IT operations of Goresbrook School.  As one of the largest MATs in the country, you will enjoy working as part of the in-house IT service where career progression is possible and actively encouraged.

United Learning’s Goresbrook School proudly serves the children and families of Dagenham and Redbridge. 

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to learn, develop and succeed – from Nursery through to Year 11 – and we have a responsibility to ensure that we provide the best possible educational experiences for the children in our care.

Closing date for application: By 5pm, 13th May 2021.  We reserve the right to close this job advert early once we have found an appointable candidate, so please submit your application ASAP.

United Learning

United Learning is a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer life-changing education to children and young people across England.

Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.


As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.


United Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
