Job Overview

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding individual with a keen interest in IT, to assist with providing support for the school’s extensive IT infrastructure.

The school’s IT Support Department provides cutting-edge IT services which are continually enhanced both to meet and to exceed the requirements and expectations of students, staff and parents. The work of the IT Support Department is critical to the day-to-day operation of the school, not just in relation to the teaching and learning of pupils, but also to all the other roles which enable the school to function, from finance, to exams, to MIS systems.

The department is currently staffed year-round by 2 dedicated IT professionals who ensure operational continuity Monday to Friday, between the hours of 8.00am and 4.00pm. The successful candidate will seamlessly integrate into the team to deliver a high level of technical support in a professional and positive manner and contribute to the progressive evolution of our IT services.

This position provides an exciting opportunity to work on the school’s ongoing initiatives such as the Digital Curriculum and our continuing transition towards cloud-based solutions.

The individual appointed will therefore play a pivotal role in the continued support and maintenance of the school’s existing IT environment, as well assist in the development of evolving solutions. As the IT environment is integral to many aspects of the school’s day-to-day functioning, the postholder will collaborate with, and provide support to, a wide range of staff, students, parents and guests.

IT is an ever-developing field and the responsibilities and expectations of this role reflect its dynamic nature.

Due to this being an apprentice role, no formal experience is necessary but as previously stated, the expectation is that you will have a keen interest in IT and are also willing to attend college for official IT systems related training.

Training will be provided by either local providers or remote learning.

All Saints Catholic High School is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children. Disclosure of any criminal convictions and an enhanced DBS check will be required for this post. It is an offence to apply for the role if you are barred from engaging in regulated activity relevant to children. The post may not be exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 as certain spent convictions and cautions are ‘protected’ and are not subject to disclosure. It is important that an applicant provides the school with upfront disclosure of all unspent convictions, cautions, reprimands or warnings. A failure to declare the above (that are not subject to the Disclosure and Barring Service filtering) may disqualify an applicant for appointment and may result in summary dismissal if the discrepancy comes to light subsequently.

To arrange an informal visit to the school and a meeting with Tony McGuinness, Headteacher at All Saints Catholic High School please contact Maria McGowan (mmcgowan@allsaintschs.org.uk)
