Schools this job is for


The School of Science and Technology Maidstone is a new state of the art secondary school, opening in September 2020 as part of Valley Invicta Academies Trust. With an initial intake of 180 Year 7 students, the school will grow to 1,200 students aged between 11 and 18.

This is a full-time post, working 37 hours per week, all year round.  The Senior IT Technician will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day IT operations of the school, providing 1st and 2nd line support to staff and students.

While the role will comprise a significant amount of independent work, the postholder will be supported by the IT team from one of our adjacent schools as well as the central Trust IT team.


Benefits include access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, our employee rewards package and 24 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays.
