Royal Russell School is a co-educational school with over 1000 students and 300 staff in South Croydon. This role will join a team of 3 staff within the Estates Department who provide a caretaking and security support service to all School buildings including boarding houses, classrooms, nursery, offices, refectory and other public space and grounds. You will carry out minor repairs, assist with the setting up of rooms for meetings, exams and external functions, transport laundry, post and parcels around the site and support the effective running of the School.

You should be able to work unsupervised or as part of the wider team, and be able to use your initiative to ensure that your daily tasks are completed to the highest standards. Previous experience in a similar environment would be beneficial, but a strong work ethic, a can-do attitude, and a willingness to pitch in are most important.
