These are exciting times for the ICT team at The Howard Partnership Trust. We have been implementing a new ICT strategy which gives a clear direction of travel for the next five years. To enable us to deliver an ICT service to be proud of, we are looking for an ICT Service Desk Engineer to join our support team. 

This role is a part-time role based at our Howard of Effingham school working 28.3 hours week, Monday-Friday: 9:00am - 3:00pm (includes 20 minutes unpaid Lunch), 40 weeks (term-time plus 1 week).    

Enterprise grade technology, practices and frameworks are being introduced as we change to a shared services model with a centralised Infrastructure Team and local support teams for our schools. With two datacentres we have standardise our offering across our schools (currently nine and growing) and are embracing cloud technology, particularly Microsoft Office 365.

This is a new role within the Partnership and an area that is highly likely to develop over time. Reporting to and working with the ICT Support Team Leaders this is a new key position designed to change the IT experience our staff and students have within our schools. This is a natural development as we centralise our ICT infrastructure, migrating schools into the new single Trust domain and implementing ICT in new school builds, including a new building for our lead school with approximately 2,000 student capacity.

You may be a ICT Technician, System Administrator or Helpdesk Administrator seeking a rewarding role within the Education sector. To be successful you will need to be resilient, enthusiastic and driven in order to help transform our service. Along with hands-on experience of Administering Active Directory user accounts, groups and distribution lists on Windows Server, we are looking for an extremely organised and assertive individual to be our first point of contact for issues and problems, escalating where necessary to our Support Engineers based throughout the schools. 

THPT can offer: 

  • An opportunity to be part of a dynamic and developing organisation
  • Excellent benefit package to include Cycle to Work, Sainsbury’s Loyalty Discount and access to discount schemes
  • Local Government Pension Scheme
  • Rewards and Benefits Scheme that includes Loyalty and Service Awards
