Job Description

New Directions are recruiting for a hardworking and flexible school caretaker, to work on a relief basis in various Wirral schools.

Due to the nature of relief work, this role will involve working in different schools in the area, covering temporary absences such as long or short-term sickness. Although the hours will vary depending on the specific school requirements, primary school caretakers will usually be required to work split-shifts (e.g. 6am – 10am and 3pm – 7pm), so applicants will ideally have access to transport.

Applicants should have previous caretaker experience or a background working in building/maintenance/repairs with transferable skills, 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.
