IT Technician job summary

About the Role

The majority of your time will be spent at the Swan School, reporting into our IT Network manager. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to be part of an exceptional growing comprehensive school, with IT systems installed as new in 2020, and the majority of our staff and students using chromebooks.

You will have previous service desk experience, and a strong desire to help our staff and students use IT to its full potential. As a result you will be able to offer a excellent customer service on first line support for requests and issues. You will be performing diagnosis procedures on hardware, peripherals and applications, and liasing with 3rd parties as required by the Network Manager or RLT IT lead.

As well as work at the Swan school, you will provide onsite and ticket support to local RLT primary schools and will advise these primary schools on all IT related matters

About The School

The Swan School is a free school which opened in September 2019 as part of the River Learning Trust (RLT). When fully subscribed it will have approximately 1200 students on the roll, of whom around 300 will be in the Sixth Form. Learning from the most successful approaches at the best schools, The Swan School provides a uniquely challenging and structured experience in a caring and disciplined environment. The ethos is academic; we regard an excellent academic education as the entitlement of all young people, no matter what their background or previous experiences of learning. Students will be inspired and nurtured, acquiring the knowledge and skills to think critically and creatively. They will learn to be confident, resilient and ambitious, and will have high expectations in terms of their own achievements and their contribution to wider society.

About the River Learning Trust

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.

OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.
