As a dependable member of our Estates/Facilities team, you will be available (sometimes at short notice) to assist in keeping the high standard of cleanliness and maintenance within the school premises, whilst at the same time ensuring a safe learning environment for our students.

We require someone who can keep up the maintenance and security for the school, and be responsible for the premises outside of normal working hours in regards to locking/unlocking where the Site Manager is unavailable and any additional cleaning, setting of security alarm systems and carrying out security checks.
