Job description

We are looking for an IT & Data Security Officer with a strong IT background and the ability to engage with colleagues remotely across Oak to join our Operations team. We are a team of around a dozen specialists who work together to ensure the organisation is fully compliant with legal and UK government regulations, whilst also setting up our colleagues to do their life's best work. We do things differently at Oak and are always looking to improve our ways of working and challenge the status quo.

Oak is here to improve pupil outcomes and close the disadvantage gap by supporting teachers to teach, and pupils to access a high-quality curriculum. We work with schools, teachers and the wider education system to create and support the use of world-class digital education products built around our rigorous, high-quality curriculum.


If you have great IT and people skills and looking for an organisation with a fantastic mission, working with talented colleagues, then this might be the right opportunity for you.


  • Administer all aspects of day-to-day Oak IT (Google Cloud, hardware management, SaaS management).

  • Introduce, optimise and retire business applications whilst maintaining excellent interoperability and service levels.

  • Bring your expertise to bear across the whole of Oak, whilst playing a key role as part of the Operations team (which includes finance, human resources, business IT, information security, compliance and procurement).

  • As a member of the Oak Team, contribute to the wider success and culture of the organisation.

  • Support all work across the Operations team and take on other general responsibilities as required.

  • Work in cross-functional and product oriented squads with colleagues from across the organisation, as required.

Knowledge, skills, and experience

  • 3+ years experience of continuously improving business IT processes/systems.

  • Good knowledge of collaboration and productivity tooling for a remote business including Google Workspace, Slack, Jamf, MS Office 365, end-point management systems and VPN technology.

  • Experience using a zero-trust framework to secure remote teams.

  • Experience of securing and/or maintaining industry cybersecurity accreditations (e.g. CE+ or ISO27001). 

  • Experience of rolling out new processes to remote teams, including skills-building support, including training where appropriate.

  • Experience in data protection, GDPR, and information security would be desirable.

The successful candidate will have a desire to contribute in all areas to ensure Oak is successful. You will be comfortable working at pace, with a range of digital systems (including proprietary ones as required) and you will continuously look at ways that the team can keep getting better. You will be excellent at working as part of a remote team, building relationships and managing your time effectively.

We are aiming to start interviews in early December 2023.

We are receiving some excellent applications for our roles. This may lead us to closing the role early and so if you are considering applying then please get your application in early to avoid missing out.
