Due to the nature of supply work, all applicants must be flexible and willing to work in different schools in the area, covering long and short-term temporary staff absences. Ideally applicants will have access to their own transport as Caretakers are usually required to work split-shifts, such as 6am – 10am and 3pm – 6pm.

- Painting and decorating
- Grounds maintenance

Caretakers will be responsible for looking after the school site including the buildings and grounds.
The duties of a school caretaker include: general maintenance and minor repairs, liaising with contractors, managing heating and alarm systems, security opening and closing the school, basic cleaning, and key holding.
Caretakers must be honest, reliable and trustworthy. They must be able to work well on their own using their own initiative, as well as working well within a larger team.
