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

The successful candidate will work alongside the existing maintenance team members in ensuring that the maintenance requirements of the school are carried out on a timely basis; that facilities are set out for school events; and that the school buildings are opened up and checked each morning. The successful candidate 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 excellent general maintenance skills and be willing to carry out repairs around school together with grounds maintenance, gardening, event set up and janitorial duties. There will also be a requirement to drive the school vehicles on occasion, therefore a full UK driving licence is desirable. The successful candidate 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

Applications will only be considered upon the completion of an application form available from our website, by clicking apply, together with a covering letter and CV. Also available on this website are the person specification and the job description

Closing date for applications: 5pm Monday 2nd October 2017.
