The Governors at Knutsford Multi-Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a caretaker to join the site team. The Academy is a split-site with two buildings half a mile apart and a Studio school in the grounds. To allow for flexibility, you will be expected to work across all sites. The job is varied in nature and requires a range of skills. Flexibility, initiative, the willingness to learn, to work as part of a team and be involved in the life of the Academy are some qualities you will find useful in this post. A sense of humour and the ability to get on with a wide variety of people is essential. Boredom is not an option and your day will vary according to which shift you are on and the demands of the school calendar. This is a post which requires energy and commitment.
This is a full time, all year round role.
Term-time hours are worked in rotational shifts with the other caretakers:
Shift 1 - 06:30 - 14:00
Shift 2 - 09:00 - 16:30
Shift 3 - 11:30 - 19:00 (also includes evening events, for which a later start will be arranged)
School holiday hours: 08:00 - 16:30
Total weekly hours : 37 (30 min earlier finish on Friday for all shifts)
We are also open to receiving applications from anyone interested in a Caretaker apprenticeship.
Knutsford Multi-Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

Knutsford Multi-Academy Trust is committed to the promotion of equality of opportunity and the elimination of discrimination; all applicants should note that they will be considered on the basis of suitability regardless of disability, gender, race, religion, age, sexual orientation and marital status or any other discrimination which is unfair or unreasonable.
In line with the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 Knutsford Multi-Academy Trust does not request attendance or medical information on candidates for posts prior to appointment.
