Further details about the role

This position is for a Leisure Assistant to support our School events and active use of the School site by the Community. Each weekday evening will consist of approximately 1 hours of cleaning, as well as making sure the facilities are ready for groups and then locking the facilities eg 3G pitch/ sports hall at the end of the session. Lettings are between 6.00-10.00pm Monday to Friday and during the day time at the weekends.

We envisage in the future that there will be 2 leisure assistant roles and so the working pattern will change to reflect this once we have 2 people in post. We understand that one 16 hr post cannot cover all the hours we need.

We are looking to appoint a reliable, independent, and enthusiastic individual to undertake this new role, which will involve supervising the hire of the school facilities including the 3G pitch and sports hall during weekday evenings and weekends with some cleaning responsibilities. The role will involve

  • To represent Weaverham High School during community lettings, displaying a high level of responsibility, reliability, organisational and communication skills.
  • To provide cleaning of areas as required.
  • To facilitate lettings during evenings, weekends and school-holiday periods. A flexible approach to working hours is therefore essential.

Main Responsibilities:

  • To retain keys for the facility and maintain the security of the premises and all equipment during lettings.
  • Opening the premises prior to scheduled bookings and securing the site at the end of the sessions
  • Ensuring areas relevant to the letting are set up prior to the start of the session as requested and cleared away afterwards, reporting any issues or faults with equipment or facilities as required
  • To maintain cleanliness of lettings areas (eg changing rooms/toilets) ensuring all areas are left tidy and presentable at all times. Also carry out some small cleaning duties each weekday night.
  • Lifting, moving and handling equipment as required
  • Carrying out small maintenance on equipment as necessary
  • Managing your own time effectively to support all bookings at the agreed times.
  • Ensuring site access is given to authorised hirers only, challenging trespassers as necessary
  • Providing First Aid response & equipment in the event of an accident
  • Delivering excellent customer service
  • Resolving customer queries or complaints, escalating as appropriate
  • Compliance with school policies
