New Directions are recruiting for an experienced maintenance person to work as a relief school caretaker in various primary schools in Barry.
Due to the nature of relief work all applicants must be flexible and reliable and should be willing to work in different schools on request, covering long and short-term staff absences such as sickness or maternity. Ideally applicants will also have access to their own transport, as the successful individual will be required to work split-shifts to open the school in the morning and lock up at the end of the day.
We are seeking applicants with a strong maintenance background and an excellent awareness of health and safety.
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.
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.
