As we move into an exciting new phase at Academies Enterprise Trust (AET), we are seeking to appoint a Building Operations Supervisor to join our new structure which will come into operation from September 2017.
The new structure will consist of a Building Operations Supervisor supported by Building Operations Assistants who will provide site services to our academies. Our cluster areas will be made up of a mixture of phases with our largest cluster being 6 academies.
This role will be based at Wishmore Cross Academy, a residential special school in Chobham, Surrey, for boys aged 9 to 16 years who have social, emotional and mental health difficulties. The Academy can admit up to 80 boys and can offer up to 22 residential places (including extended days) on a flexible basis for up to 4 nights per week. The Academy is situated within easy reach of the M25 and M3 and, although in Surrey, is very close to Berkshire and Hampshire.
If you want to be part of a network of academies that is passionately committed to inspiring children and young people, this role could be for you.
As part of the National Building Operations team, you will have an operational and supervisory role, managing a team of Building Operation Assistants, which is focused on ensuring the safe, economic and effective operation of all Trust buildings and grounds.
The successful candidate will have previous experience of premises management, building cleaning or building management, be highly motivated, organised, full of initiative, and common sense, with a proven ability to work effectively under pressure. You will have the ability to lead the team and relate well and build positive relationships with staff and key stakeholders.
AET believes that all young people deserve to become world-class learners - to learn, enjoy, succeed and thrive in a first rate educational environment with the best facilities, the best teaching and the most up-to-date resources available to them. In each of our academies, you will benefit from visionary, inspirational and dynamic leadership and be empowered to develop your own skills with access to world-class CPD and Talent Management programmes. You will also be entitled to the following benefits: a health cash plan, vehicle affinity scheme, childcare vouchers and Westfield rewards.
This is a very exciting time for Academies Enterprise Trust and we hope you will join us on our journey.
