The School

Friesland School is a good school that is on the path to becoming outstanding. Every child really matters at our school and each year we celebrate excellent results and last year was no exception with some outstanding achievements. We recognise that these outcomes are only possible through the commitment, dedication and skills of our highly valued staff.

The Role

We are seeking to recruit an experienced, hands-on manager to oversee our site and premises team. The role is varied, but ultimately we want you to oversee and develop the site so that we can realise its potential for our students and staff. The work involves carrying out the day-to-day duties of running the site as well as managing lettings, grounds & general maintenance, minor repairs, minibuses and managing premises staff.

The Person

Our ideal candidate is able to offer successful experience of managing a site including leading a team as well as solid understanding of building regulations and Health & Safety. Experience of working in a school is not essential, however sound computer skills and a practical, hands-on approach to work are. A trade background is desirable. It can be hectic at times, so you’ll need to be able to work calmly and be well organised to get the job done.
