Salary:Grade 5(£23,953 to £26,446)

Mercia Learning Trust is an ambitious, forward thinking and successful partnership of six schools, 3 primary, 3 secondary (including 2 PFI Secondary with facilities management and catering provided as part of the contract), located in the south and southwest of Sheffield. We are passionate that every pupil, whatever their background, will attend an exceptional school. We are currently responsible for the education and wellbeing of close to 4500 students aged 2-18 and employ over 550 staff across our schools and central services.

The trust wants every child, and member of staff, to work in a school (or building or grounds) that are safe, secure, clean, healthy, fit for purpose, well-maintained, increasingly environmentally sustainable, and inspiring. This underpins our educational vision.

Whilst we acknowledge that each school building is different (scale, age, building quality, management, when adopted etc.), we will use pooled resources to maintain and improve our buildings and to ameliorate (level up) any difference.

We are looking for an enthusiastic Site Manager to be responsible for managing all site related issues including maintenance, repair and improvements in relation to the buildings (interior and exterior, furniture, fittings and the school grounds).

The Site Manager will:

  • Deal with all site related issues including maintenance, repair and improvements in relation to the buildings (interior and exterior, furniture, fittings and the school grounds).
  • Assist in managing a team of cleaners
  • Providing a service to the site including security, lighting, heating, maintenance and operation of the building.

The site manager will work in collaboration with the Trust Facilities and Estates Manager understanding compliances and managing change requests on behalf of the school. They will be responsible for premises at Mercia School.

It is expected that the successful candidate will have proven experience of operational management, exceptional organisational, communication and management skills, the ability to work as part of a team and be diplomatic, self-reliant, self-motivated and able to work with minimum supervision.

Thank you for your interest in this role within the Central Services Team at Mercia Learning Trust. Our Central Team was established in 2016 and has seen continued growth in capacity and expertise over the last few years.

We continue to develop new ways of working to ensure we can effectively respond to the needs of each school within the Trust and continuously improve the support we offer.

The team is pivotal in the successful operation of the Trust and is focused on supporting the improvement of educational standards in all our schools. All of the work carried out by our Central Teams is in relation to the non-teaching and learning aspects of running our schools; Estates, Finance, HR, IT and Payroll.

We want to drive improvement by developing the efficiency of our schools through shared resources. Effective and efficient use of resources supports teaching and learning across the schools and ensures both the long-term viability of individual schools and the sustainable growth and strategic direction of the Trust.

As Director of Finance and Operations, I ensure that the services we offer are sustainable to support our future growth and provide strategic oversight of operational services across all our schools. As a team, we offer a high-quality service to all schools within the Trust. This centralised structure relieves the burden of administrative responsibility from schools allowing Headteachers to focus on teaching and learning.

We encourage our staff to be flexible thinkers with an open-minded approach. If you are as excited about this as we are and want to join us on our journey, we would be delighted to receive your application.
