Following the retirement of the Site Custodian, an opportunity has arisen for a caretaker to join our friendly, hardworking and committed team at Signhills Academy. The successful applicants will have the ability to work on their own initiative, be able to multi-task and have a professional attitude to work. They will be reliable, trustworthy and able to prioritise and take the initiative, with good DIY skills. The role is vital in ensuring the academy provides a safe and secure environment for our children, of which we can all be proud.
The academy estate includes the school building, playground, outdoor learning spaces, field, biomass and gas boiler plant and detached swimming pool.
Duties will include the opening and closing of school, general site maintenance and handyman duties, security of the school and site, health and safety, managing and supervising cleaning staff, liaising with contractors and cleaning duties as necessary.
The Academy is committed to the continued development of the Staff Team and, as such, initial and ongoing training opportunities will be identified to support the post holder in developing their skills and knowledge.
As the academy shares the site with Signhills Infant Academy, the role will require the post holder to work collaboratively with their caretaker where it is in the best interests of the academies, for example when hiring specialist equipment or arranging contractor service visits.
Closing date for applications is 10:00am on 15th October 2015.
Interviews will take place on 21 October 2015.
The post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
Only Academy application forms may be used, these are available from the office or can be downloaded from the school’s website: www.signhillsacademy.co.uk
For an informal discussion, or to make arrangements to visit the school, please contact the Headteacher on 694811 or email email@example.com to make an appointment.
Signhills Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects the same commitment from all staff and volunteers.
