1st Line IT Technician
We have an exciting opportunity for a 1st Line IT Technician to play a key role in the IT support team at our leading independent day school in the heart of Oxford.
You will also be part of a wider group of Girls' Day School Trust schools and Head Office with a very active and supportive IT community.
You will be the first point of contact in providing technical support and advice to staff and students, as well as supporting a wide range of activities and events across three school sites. To be successful in the role, you will need to be a proactive, flexible problem solver with a keen desire to learn, and possess great social and communication skills.
A working knowledge of computers and troubleshooting is essential. Any further skills training can be provided on the job if required.
As a school, we are keen to invest in the technologies that make the most difference in the classroom and are not tied to any particular solution. You will therefore be part of an ever-changing technological landscape, full of learning and professional development opportunities. You will have the opportunity to work on trust wide projects, contribute to policies and procedures, and work with a wide variety of enterprise class technologies including:
- Microsoft SCCM
- Microsoft Active Directory and Group Policy
- Microsoft Hyper-V
- Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems
- Chrome OS, Windows, iOS and macOS devices
- Enterprise wireless and VOIP systems
- Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace
- Enterprise anti-virus and endpoint protection
- Data backup and recovery systems
- Print management and accounting systems (e.g. Papercut)
- IT Helpdesk Management Systems
IT is central to the whole process of teaching and learning at the school. If you have a keen interest in IT and would like to be part of our team, we would be delighted to hear from you.
