We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, energetic, flexible and reliable Site Officer to start as soon as possible.  This is a full time position, working 37 hours per week, 52 weeks per year (less annual holiday entitlement).

You will join a friendly and supportive school and be part of a small team, providing support across the site, working on a split shift pattern.  Main duties will include locking/unlocking the site, porterage duties, health and safety and general maintenance and repairs.  As a key holder, you will respond to out-of-hours call outs and, on occasion, be required to open/close the premises following out of school hours events.

The ideal candidate will have a good understanding of at least one trade (such as heating, building or electrical works).  Previous experience of working in a school setting would be an advantage.

We have recently completed Stage 1 of a building programme for refurbishment which has seen the opening of a newly constructed £3 million classroom block. The next stage of refurbishment will see the Design Technology department completely renovated.

• Someone who has excellent communication skills.
