The King’s School is an outstanding comprehensive school with excellent facilities, supportive parents, ambitious students and an extremely strong reputation for success.  To start at the beginning of August, we wish to appoint a caretaker to support the school in maintaining and developing our premises so that they are secure, safe and welcoming for staff, students and visitors.  The person will work with other members of the site team and Site Manager to complete a range of general caretaking duties such as securing the site, replenishing consumables, driving the minibus and dealing with deliveries as well as more specific repair and remediation work based on the schools priorities. The successful candidate needs to be flexible, enjoy working in a team, as well as under their own initiative and happy responding to the unexpected!  Training will be provided so generic skills are more important than specific previous experience in this area.

We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of students so all staff are enhanced DBS checked.
