We are seeking a flexible and reliable candidate to work as a School Caretaker on a temporary supply basis in Primary Schools in Newbridge and surrounding areas.
Due to the nature of supply work, all applicants will ideally have access to their own transport and will be willing to work in different schools on occasion, covering long and short-term staff absences within local schools.
The working hours vary, however school caretakers are usually required to work split-shifts, to open the school in the morning and return to lock up at the end of the day. (e.g. 7:30 – 9:30 and 14:30 – 18:00)
The successful candidate must be hardworking and motivated and will have a background working in building, maintenance, grounds keeping and caretaking. All applicants should also be able to demonstrate an excellent knowledge of health and safety.
Duties will include:
- Opening and closing the premises
- Maintaining alarm systems
- General maintenance and repairs
- Basic cleaning duties
- Organising external contractors
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 at the cost of £44.
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.
Candidates will ideally have previous caretaking experience; however New Directions will consider candidates who have a background in maintenance, decorating, facilities or security. It is mandatory that caretakers have a clear DBS either registered with the Update Service or a New Directions DBS.
