We are seeking to appoint a hard working, friendly and enthusiastic caretaker with good light maintenance skills to join our thriving co-educational independent day school for pupils aged 3-16yrs.

The successful candidate will be responsible for ensuring that the school is kept clean and tidy; that facilities are set out for school events; and that the school buildings are locked and secure. The caretaker will be expected to work flexibly to cover the school holiday periods and to work overtime on occasional evenings and weekends to cover school events.

Applicants should have some general maintenance skills and be willing to carry out minor repairs around school together with janitorial duties. The caretaker must be reliable, responsible and should take pride in the quality of their work.  Previous experience within a school or college environment is desirable but not essential. Previous experience in a similar role is desirable.
