Oaklands is an outstanding special school serving the London Borough of Hounslow that provides specialist education to students with severe learning difficulties, profound and multiple difficulties and autism. From September 2018 we have a Primary school (New Oaks), Secondary school (High Oaks) and a specialist independent SEN College provision (Great Oaks). We can cater for students aged from 4 to 25 across the Oaklands group.
Oaklands is at an exciting point in its development. In 2018, we relocated to our purpose built new school building (close to Osterley Tube Station and other public transport links) that offers state of the art facilities for our students. In September 2020, the primary and secondary schools will be based on two sites with New Oaks Primary moving back to the newly refurbished Woodlands Road site.
We are looking to appoint an IT Manager to provide a comprehensive, innovative and responsive technical support service for all school services, maintaining an IT infrastructure that is secure, reliable, robust and resilient and supports all aspects of teaching and learning, along with operational and administrative support, across the various departments of the schools and college.
The successful candidate will be an experienced manager of both people and systems. Due to the nature of the position, we are looking for someone who has outstanding communication skills (both written and verbal). You will have the ability to problem solve and work collaboratively with contractors. Experience of setting up and installation of ICT systems for a new site would be advantageous.
We value our employees and offer excellent training and support along with a pension scheme, Employee Assistance Programme and other well-being benefits.
Oaklands is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and anyone applying to work at the school is expected to share this commitment. This position is subject to a satisfactory fully enhanced DBS check and references being received. All positions are subject to the satisfactory completion of a 26 working week probation period.
