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
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.
