IT Infrastructure Manager job summary

To support our ambitions, we are seeking an IT Infrastructure Manager to be the driving force to implement platform migrations designing a MAT centralised system to provide a single point of access for all stakeholders, someone who will innovate and constantly move IT forward with a long-term strategy.

What we offer:

  • The opportunity to work with a progressive and forward thinking, Multi Academy Trust.
  • Opportunities for development and career progression
  • Benefits include –generous holiday entitlement, contributory pension through West Yorkshire Pension Fund.

Supporting Information;

We wish to support a candidate with the aspirations and skills to develop into an exceptional ICT Infrastructure Lead within the Trust.

An external IT audit has confirmed that the schools are in a good place with IT but we are looking for an individual who can drive change forward and embrace new ways of remote working and cloud-based systems: someone who can take ownership for IT across the Trust.

Initially the schools within the Trust will be supported by their current IT service providers but as these contracts come to an end you will be providing support for all. As the Trust expands you will have the opportunity to appoint your own technical staff/apprentices to undertake the day-to-day support work and build up your own department.

We are looking for a key member of the Trust Team: -

  • who embraces the vision and values of the trust;
  • who has a focus on education and can apply digital technology research to improve learning for all;
  • who will ensure our systems and our learners are safe and that online safety and cyber security are a prime focus;
  • who has a strong business acumen and the tenacity to get things done;

• who inspires confidence from stakeholders and the executive trust leaders;

  • who is an expert project manager;
  • who seeks out new opportunities to continually improve and future proof IT for all;
  • who has the highest expectations for their own performance and can inspire high standards by an uncompromising ambition.
