We are looking for a reliable, energetic and organised caretaker to join our busy staff team as soon as possible. The ideal candidate will be a friendly team player, who is willing to work hard to keep the school site tidy and well maintained.

Caretaking duties will include general cleaning, emergency repairs, liaising with contractors, keeping the grounds tidy and general maintenance around the site. Previous experience in a similar role is essential. Additional DIY skills would be useful. The post holder will also be a keyholder for the site.

The working pattern will be Monday to Friday daytime and there may be occasional evening work required to cover lettings or colleague absence. SMSG operate across two sites and you will be expected to work across both.

We work closely with the other IFTL schools to share expertise and knowledge across all disciplines. As a caretaker you can look forward to regular contact with other caretakers within the Trust.

If you are a team player and can demonstrate a flexible approach, along with a willingness to learn, we’d love to hear from you.

We invest heavily in professional development to enable our staff to flourish and to continually learn and develop. As part of the Inspiring Futures through Learning Multi Academy Trust, successful candidates will have full access to our staff benefits package including our Employee Assistance Programme, discount on gym membership, cinema tickets, cycle to work scheme and much more.

Our children and young people come from a wide range of backgrounds, and so do our colleagues. We aim to reflect and celebrate diversity in our workplace in order to create an inclusive culture that adds real value to our vision of inspiring the futures of us all through learning together.

Our commitment to ensuring equal opportunity and lifelong development is showcased in our 1:1 iPad initiative for learners and teaching colleagues across the schools in our trust. By harnessing the power of technology and collaboration, we aim to reshape and rethink what it means to be a learner into this digital age, and you can play a role in shaping our curriculum offer by joining us on this journey.

Inspiring Futures through Learning is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. All employees are expected to share this commitment, to follow IFtL’s safeguarding policies and procedures, and to behave appropriately towards children at all times, both in work and in their personal lives.

All school-based posts are defined as Regulated Activity and therefore this post is subject to an Enhanced with Barred List Criminal Records Bureau check.
