Shirebrook Academy is part of Aston Community Education Trust, a forward thinking and ambitious multi-academy trust, comprising of three senior and nine junior academies across the Rotherham, Sheffield and north Derbyshire areas.

Shirebrook Academy is at the heart of the Shirebrook community.  We are committed to making a real difference to the lives of our young people and will provide excellent learning and enrichment opportunities for them throughout their time with us.  To be able to achieve this, we need to have a team of dedicated and outstanding staff, who will contribute to our exceptional learning community.

We are seeking to appoint a Senior ICT Technician to work from Shirebrook Academy, who, along with the wider ACET IT team will provide full support in all aspects of ICT provision across all academies. The post-holders will assist the Network Manager in designing and implementing innovative IT systems/processes whilst ensuring full network capability is maintained at all times. The Senior IT Technician will also contribute to a team of ICT technicians providing technical support for the use of all ICT hardware, software and systems across a variety of platforms and operating systems across the trust. 

The post-holders will be based in Shirebrook Academy and will be required to travel to the other academies within the trust to ensure an efficient and effective service is provided in all ACET locations by the ICT team. 

The successful candidates will: 

  • Have a sound knowledge of Microsoft desktop and server operating systems including Windows Server, SCCM, SCOM and SQL
  • Have a sound knowledge of Network architecture including wireless
  • Have a good working knowledge of Virtual Server environments
  • Have a working knowledge of IP based telephony systems

  • Be able to work independently and with initiative
  • Be conscientious, honest and reliable
  • Be well-motivated and flexible
  • Have a can-do approach
