An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dedicated, proactive and professional person to work in our vibrant and friendly school right here in Petersfield.

You will be responsible for the security, safety, cleanliness and general maintenance of the school site and grounds. Our highest priority is the safety and security of our children, so the ability to work alongside both adults and children is crucial.

This role will suit a hard-working, proactive individual, who enjoys the variety and responsibility of site managing one of the largest junior schools in Hampshire.

Duties will involve painting, small carpentry tasks, minor plumbing tasks and deep cleaning of the buildings during school closure periods, preparing areas for school-related functions and activities, moving and setting up furniture and equipment as required; organising the cleaning (and care) of the two minibuses.   We would welcome new candidates to consider being MIDAS trained to help drive the minibuses when required on school trips.                                                                    

You will take responsibility for out of hours activities when they arise (these duties will attract additional pay). You will need to ensure that Health and Safety Regulations and Safe Working Procedures are adhered to and Risk Assessments and H&S inspections are carried out at appropriate intervals, working in conjunction with our admin team to maintain accurate ongoing records for health and safety, fire safety and associated site tasks.

Ideally, the successful candidate should have basic IT skills and be confident using email in the fulfilment of this role.

As the principal key holder, this role involves having access to and ensuring the security of the school site, including emergency and out-of-hours call outs as required.

The hours will be 7am to 11am then 1.30pm to 5pm (4.30pm finish on Fridays).

Times are negotiable for the right candidate, although an early morning start is essential.
