School Caretaker

Alderwood School is seeking to appoint a caretaker to start as soon as possible. The successful candidate will be responsible for the day to day security, safety, cleanliness and general maintenance of the infant school site.

32.5 hours per week, 52 weeks per year. 24 days’ holiday entitlement, plus bank holidays, increasing to 27 days after 5 years’ service.
