The positions can vary depending on the specific school requirements; however, the working hours will usually be split-shifts (7am – 11am and 3pm – 6pm), therefore all applicants will ideally have access to transport. There may also be some requirement to work during school holidays.
Previous maintenance experience is essential, as the successful candidate will be responsible for the overall upkeep of the school premises.
Please note, all applicants must hold a Child-Only Enhanced DBS Certificate registered with the Update Service, or be willing to pay for a new DBS.
