    SIMS Consultant

    Due to continued customer growth, an opportunity has arisen for a suitably qualified, highly motivated and experienced High School SIMS specialist to join our Capita Accredited, hardworking and highly regarded support team.

    School ICT Services Ltd is one of the largest, independent providers of SIMS support in the country. We currently offer support and consultancy services to around 400 Local Authority, Academy and Free Schools, predominantly in the north of England but increasingly on a national basis. It is our aim to help schools get maximum use from their SIMS system and candidates must be pro-active in developing the use of this software in schools.

    The successful applicant will have excellent communication skills and be able to deliver high quality support to our customers across a range of SIMS specialisms via our service desk as well as delivering training and consultancy services. There is also an expectation that applicants are prepared to deliver on-site training and consultancy to our customers throughout the country.
    The successful applicant will be given specific responsibilities for the delivery of training and consultancy in the Midlands, Wiltshire and Essex as demand dictates. For this reason we would be happy to accept applications from candidates based in these regions who would be predominantly working from home.

    You should have a sound knowledge of supporting high school SIMS modules including Examinations, Course Manager, Nova T6 and Academic Management. You should also have experience and understanding of at least 4 of the following areas: Managing pupil data in SIMS .net, Personnel 7, SIMS end of year procedures, External Returns (Census and SWC), Attendance, Behaviour Management, FMS, Assessment Manager, Profiles, Options and Reporting.

    In return, the company offers:
    • Competitive Salary
    • 30 day annual holiday entitlement
    • Private Healthcare
    • Death in Service Benefit
    • Pension Scheme

    The suitable candidate will ideally already be providing similar services to schools through an existing SIMS support team. The role may also be ideal for an experienced High School SIMS user wanting to utilise their skills in a commercial environment.
    If you believe you have the skills and interest to take on this challenging role in a highly competitive environment, a full job description and information on how to apply can be found by emailing mark.blackwood@schoolicts.co.uk. Alternatively for an informal conversation about the company and the post please call Mark Blackwood on 0845 6436802

    Closing date – 31/03/17
