Job Description

Job Specification

New Directions are looking to recruit a flexible and hard-working School Caretaker, to work on a relief basis in various Primary Schools in Swansea.

Due to the nature of relief work, all applicants must be flexible and reliable and will ideally have access to their own transport, as primary school caretakers are required to work split-shifts (hours are typically 6am-9am and 3pm-6pm).

Previous experience as a School Caretaker is highly desirable but not essential; candidates without this experience should instead have a strong Maintenance/DIY/Site Management background with transferable skills.

The core responsibilities of a Caretaker are;

  • Opening the building in the morning and locking up at the end of the day
  • Ensuring doors and windows are locked when the building is not in use
  • Guarding the premises against vandalism and break-ins
  • Key-holding
  • Maintenance of heating, lighting, boiler and alarm systems
  • Ground maintenance and gardening
  • Carrying out minor repair work and booking outside contractors for major repair work
  • Basic cleaning duties and supervising cleaning staff

New Directions offer both long and short-term temporary positions, supporting local schools with temporary internal absences.

What New Directions Education offers:

  • A dedicated and expert Account Manager
  • Regular and varied supply work
  • Competitive rates of pay
  • Potential long-term roles
  • Full compliance with the Agency Workers Regulation (AWR)
  • A network of branches across the UK
  • One of the preferred suppliers to all 22 local authorities in Wales under the All Wales Framework Agreement
  • We are the major teaching supply agency for Welsh speaking teachers across Wales
  • Recommend-a-friend scheme
  • Respected reputation across the education and recruitment industry
