You will be responsible for securing all doors, windows and gates, activating and deactivating the alarm systems, planned maintenance repairs and reactive maintenance, dealing with contractors on site, carrying out health and safety checks and completing the associated paperwork.

Previous experience of being a school caretaker will be an advantage but this role could also suit someone who is looking to try this out for the first time.

The successful candidate will need to have or complete a Pool Plant Operator certificate to complete the daily testing and maintenance of the swimming pool. This is a 3 day course, with follow up work based assignments. The school will arrange this for the successful candidate.

Hours of work will vary depending on the needs of the school, the Caretakers cover a shift pattern, covering the working hours from 6.30am to 10.15pm, and the site is also open 8.30am to 6pm Saturday and 8.30am to 3pm Sunday. You could be asked to cover any of these days/times.
