Further information

We wish to appoint an enthusiastic, reliable and flexible person with good DIY skills to help with the effective operation of site services such as opening and closing, porterage of deliveries, grounds maintenance, minor building repairs and maintenance. We are open to the possibility of splitting this role into two part time posts (one morning shifts, one afternoon/evening shifts) if the right candidates prefer this.

Duties will include:
• Locking and unlocking the school and carrying out security checks on the building – which includes attending school for emergencies out of hours as required.
• Carrying out minor repairs, general maintenance and decorating competently
• Portage of deliveries and furniture as required around school
• Liaising effectively with staff, emergency services, cleaners and other contractors on site.
• Carrying out and recording checks to help maintain Health and Safety standards and records

This role will at least initially be based at St Thomas More Catholic High School, North Shields, NE29 8LF, however please note, as part of this role, you will be required to provide support to other Catholic schools within North Tyneside periodically. The postholder must at all times take a pride in the school site and their own general appearance. Previous experience would be beneficial but training will be provided.

The core contract is 37 hours per week worked over 5 days (Monday-Friday), but by working an additional 1hr and 10mins a week this allows for an additional 7 days of leave to be taken over the Christmas period.

It is a split shift rota during term time which are required to be flexible comprising a morning shift and an afternoon/evening shift. Times currently range from 0700-1045 daily followed by 1455 restart with flexible finish (to accommodate lettings).

The post holder will be required to work flexibly, meaning they would work a different working pattern during school holiday periods (e.g. 0800 to 1600 Mon- Fri) and they may be required to work overtime e.g. to help facilitate contractor weekend working and/or to attend emergency/alarm call outs.

Person specification, job description and application forms and further details are available in the support documents or on the school website: www.stmacademy.org.uk. Please return completed applications to cmarshall@stmacademy.org.uk.

St Thomas More is committed to the safety and protection of its students. The successful applicant will be required to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
