New Directions Education are looking to appoint a relief School Caretaker, to provide temporary support to schools in Carmarthenshire.
Due to the nature of relief work, all applicants must be flexible, reliable, and adaptable to work in different schools in the area, covering long and short-term internal absences such as sickness and maternity.
The positions available are full-time, Monday-Friday, and can include split-shifts (e.g. 6am – 10am and 3pm – 7pm). There will also be work available during the school holidays.
Our clients are seeking applicants with excellent practical skills and an awareness of health, safety, and security. Previous experience as a school caretaker is highly desirable. Applicants without this experience will still be considered but must have experience working in building, maintenance, or trades roles with transferable skills.
This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced maintenance person to take on flexible work, whilst providing essential support to local schools.
Caretakers are responsible for looking after a school site including the buildings and grounds.
The duties of a school Caretaker include:
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 within a larger team.
Candidates will ideally have previous caretaking experience; however New Directions will consider candidates who have a background in maintenance, decorating, facilities or security.
It’s mandatory that caretakers have a clear DBS either registered with the Update Service or a New Directions DBS.
We are fully committed to the protection of children and vulnerable adults. All applicants must undertake a full enhanced DBS (formerly CRB) check.
