About the Role

We are seeking to appoint a caretaker to join our friendly, professional team.

We wish to appoint someone who is active, versatile, organised, enthusiastic, reliable with excellent communication skills.

Applicants need to demonstrate the ability to work well under pressure. Any general plumbing, electrical or carpentry skills would also be an advantage.

We require self-motivated candidates who will work as part of a team with the School Business Manager, who the successful candidate will report to.

The work will involve all aspects of caretaking, cleaning and facilities management. The position is physical in nature and includes working outside. You should therefore be comfortable lifting furniture and equipment to statutory limits although the necessary manual handling training will be provided.

To arrange an informal discussion please contact Sascha Batters, School Business Manager. Telephone 01795 428689.
