The hours will consist of rotating shift patterns which generally follow 7am - 3.30pm (Friday 3pm), 10.45am - 7.15pm or 8.30am - 5pm during term time. During school holidays, main hours of work are 8am - 4pm with some flexibility needed to support contractor work.

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 as soon as possible, 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 successful candidate 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 school’s priorities. You will need to be flexible, enjoy working in a team as well as under your own initiative, and be happy responding to the unexpected! Training will be provided so generic skills are more important than specific previous experience in this area.

Regular adjustments to the shift pattern will be required to support school requirements, external lettings and events such as Parents’ Evenings, Trustee meetings and school productions. Up to 5 days annual leave from your allocation is able to be taken during term time.

All King’s School support staff are eligible to join the Local Government Pension Scheme, which is a defined benefit scheme, under which the school contributes 17.6% of an individual’s salary.

We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of students, so all staff undertake an enhanced DBS check.

Please apply by 9am on the closing date.
