What is it like to work for us?

"Working at Lourdes IT has made a really positive impact on my lifestyle both professionally and personally. Being part of this organisation, they are focused on providing not only secure and versatile networks across their schools. But also a fantastic customer experience to boot! The management team at Lourdes are really approachable and friendly. They want to hear ideas and suggestions from the bottom up and actively work to always improve their processes."

We really appreciate that our staff are the core of our business. 

There is no other place like Lourdes IT in education to work.

That is partly down to our ethos, but also down to the fact that there are so many of working together. Meaning if you need support it is there.

We offer half termly internal training, we allow visits to vendor and supplier events, to BETT, time out to learn and apprenticeships

We believe in being:

Friendly

In life it is nice to be nice. And, when you are stressed because technology isn’t working, there is nothing more important then a friendly face to assist.

Helpful

Understanding an issue, and how to work around it is a key skill, and going out of your way to provide additional support really impacts our users, we want to be approachable and to be told issues, so we can sort them out.

Pro-active

We want to resolve issues before they occur, if we can do this – we can change the way IT is used in schools to being more about engaging with the staff and tools, then being frustrated when things are not working. This means moving technology forward to ensure we are always at the cutting edge.

Ethos for our staff

If you are happy, and enjoying your job – you will be performing well. If we are flexible and supportive of you, we believe you will be back. 

If your hard work has helped us grow, you should grow with us.

We are proud to use some of the most advanced technology to provide our networks and our support.

Being independent, and a fairly small team, we can quickly adapt to new technology.

Helpdesk – FreshDesk

We use the powerful FreshDesk software to deliver the best support possible. 

Office365

All our schools use Office365, and we engage in training and support to ensure staff and pupils get the most from it.

Hyper-V

Our schools use Hyper V, and in many cases Hyper V Failover clusters to ensure they are robust and reliable.

Other tools

  • Veeam for backups
  • PaperCut for print management
  • A wide range of Wireless Networks
  • HP and Netgear switches

Do I have to be a Catholic to work at Lourdes IT?

No. We work for a Catholic organisation (but we support any school) – we simply ask you to respect the Catholic Ethos of our community

Are you a business?

Lourdes IT are part of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Multi Academy Company – which is a limited company. We are not a standalone company.

I have a strong passion for IT, but not all the skills, should I apply?

Yes. We can teach the tech, we can’t change your personality. We want people to want to work for and with us.

Do people really move up?

Yes – our team is made up of people who have started at first line, and are now in senior roles.

Do I need a car?

Yes, and business insurance, for pretty much all of our roles. We need you to get to a site if we have issues there.

What area do you support?

It is growing, we support primarily in Redditch and Bromsgrove, but we now have schools in Droitwich and Hanley.

Do you pay my mileage?

Yes, in certain situations we cover mileage.
