We are a successful and oversubscribed school of approximately 1,200 students.   We are seeking to appoint an IT Technician to join our IT Support Team. Reporting to the Network Manager you will assist in running the school’s ICT network, and help staff and students with their use of ICT.  The role will also involve supporting the IT network and staff at Whitehill Primary School, also in Gravesend. Very occasional evening working will be required to support whole school events e.g. open evening.

You are likely to have 2 or more years experience in an IT support role.  You will have experience in working with Windows, Active Directory, and networking hardware (cabling and switches).  Experience of cloud solutions, particularly Google, and of SIMS.net would be a distinct advantage, as would experience of working with audio-visual equipment.  Previous education experience is desirable but not essential.
