Cleaner (Maternity Cover)

Chatham GrammarMedway

The University of Kent Academies Trust are seeking to appoint two resilient and proactive Cleaners to join their enthusiastic and motivated facilities team who work to maintain our buildings. These are fixed term roles, linked to maternity leave, for up to one year.

There are two shifts available which are 6am – 9am and 4pm – 7pm, but we may be able to consider combining both shifts into one position for the right candidate.   Initially based at Chatham Grammar, the postholder will be deployed as seen fit by the Estates Manager and this may include occasionally working at Brompton Academy to cover staff absence.

The role will operate as part of a team undertaking general cleaning duties, including vacuuming, dusting, emptying bins, cleaning washroom facilities, etc. The successful candidate must be able to use their own initiative and work well as part of a team.

Experience is desirable, although full training will be provided if required. If you think you have the necessary skills and experience and would like to work in a friendly and supportive team, we would like to hear from you.

The successful applicant will be coming to a multi-academy trust-wide supportive learning environment characterised by open management and in the knowledge that they will enjoy the full support and care of the pragmatic (and down-to-earth) leadership team. We have a dynamic, innovative team of professional staff who want to make a difference to the lives, aspirations and opportunities of our young people. We would encourage applicants to visit the UKAT website to view the many employee benefits on offer: https://www.universityofkentacademiestrust.org.uk/careers-with-ukat 

Chatham Grammar offers its students a wide variety of educational opportunities with a commitment to ensuring that its students achieve good educational outcomes, develop healthy minds and aspire to be happy confident young women ready to embark on a variety of aspirational careers. It benefits from being part of the University of Kent Academies Trust and has a current Ofsted rating of Good.

In order to follow social distancing guidance, visits to the Academy are not possible at this time, but we would be happy to arrange a discussion or video call with a member of our Senior Leadership Team to share our vision for this role with you. To arrange such a discussion, or for any other queries about the role, please email recruitment@universityofkentacademiestrust.org.uk
