JOB OVERVIEW

Residential Facilities, Estates, Buildings Repair & Maintenance Technician / School Caretaker

Feeling like you’re stuck in a rut? Bored of the same old daily routine? Then look no further, this School may be the place for you.

If you have effective DIY / technical skills, a can-do attitude and a friendly manner, then we need you to join the facilities team and deliver a customer focussed, high-quality maintenance and caretaking service.

The School can guarantee that no two days will be the same so if you like what you hear so far, don your utility belt, pick up your paint brushes in one hand, screwdriver in the other, and join the team that keeps the School’s building and services up and running. OH…and if you dream of the shortest commute in a beautiful setting with the added benefit of reducing your carbon footprint, this role is definitely for you. Residing in free on-site accommodation in exchange for some site security and “first on scene” call-outs, you’ll be home in no time after each day’s work, either with feet up or enjoying the beautiful grounds of the School. Perhaps your dream is just an application away?

Still interested? All the School ask, in addition to you being a dedicated and approachable person, is that you have sound numeracy and literacy skills, experience in basic maintenance work and that you can work both independently and as part of a team.
