Assistant Caretaker

We are looking for a hardworking, conscientious, reliable and energetic Assistant Caretaker to join our Site Team and assist our Site Manager. We are happy to consider a full-time or part time-position, from 16 to 36 hours per week.   

This role is to assist with managing the site, to provide a caretaking, cleaning, porterage and routine maintenance service to meet the needs of the school, ensuring high standards of cleanliness and operational effectiveness, and compliance with health and safety requirements.

This position requires some shift working, on rotation, to cover the school opening hours and lettings. The ideal candidate will be capable of working independently and as a member of a small team and will need to have a flexible approach to hours and tasks. In return, this post offers considerable variety in the working day and the opportunity to gain practical skills and training. Between three members of the team, shifts could need to cover 7am – 10pm, Monday – Friday and weekend work to cover our lettings and so the successful candidate will be working out a shift pattern which could include them working every third weekend.

Currently our regular lettings only run until 8pm two days per week and weekend lettings are periodic, but we are planning to grow our community provision. Some lone working, minibus driving and moving and handling will be required. Flexibility to work longer hours during holiday periods on occasion may also be of benefit to us.

Knowledge of Health and Safety legislation, along with good communication skills are an important part of this role as you will be required to assist with certain aspects of Health & Safety and interact with staff, pupils, contractors and members of the community using the premises after school. Specific trade strengths in any area would be advantageous but not essential. You will be required to act as key holder and undertake security duties.

The successful candidate will be an integral member of the school community and be responsible for ensuring the upkeep and high standards of presentation of our large and attractive school site. Maintaining a safe and secure environment is an essential part of this role, and the ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate a wide range of practical skills.

In return we can offer you flexible hours, Local Government Pension Scheme, Health Cover and discounted gym  membership.

Previous site or caretaking experience is preferable, but anyone with a range of practical skills and a strong team background with good attention to detail is welcome to apply.
