There has never been a more exciting time to join HVS with our recent 'Outstanding' ofsted inspection, brand new building and relentless commitment to developing our team.

Reporting to the Premises Manager, we are looking for an enthusiastic, flexible and reliable candidate to join our Premises team tasked with ensuring the brand new School building and its facilities are maintained to the highest standard and that the environment is safe, secure and fully operational for students, staff, community users and visitors at all appropriate times.

The job-holder will be required to facilitate lettings at the weekends and ensure the School is left ready for its students on the Monday morning. There will also be a requirement to support School events on occasional weekday evenings and act as an emergency key-holder for the School. 

The job-holder will be a hands-on, can-do person with a calm sense of efficiency and organisation together with the ability to solve problems. In ensuring the School is a clean, attractive and secure place to be, the job holder will prioritise the educational, safety and welfare needs of our students. He/she will share the School's vision and the belief that all young people can achieve at high levels and recognise the critical role that the fabric of the School plays in facilitating this.

He/she will be able to work independently and as part of a team and be a key-holder for the School. 

The successful candidate will ideally have experience of premises or facilities work, be aware of maintenance programmes and H&S compliance and always carries out their work to a consistently high standard.

The role is full-time, 52 weeks a year. The working week can be flexible for the right candidate but as a minimum will be 8-10 hours a week arranged over Saturday, Sunday afternoons and one evening in the week (usually a Wednesday). Overtime may be available. 

The School would welcome applications from candidates that live within a short distance of the School.  

You will have a pro-rata entitlement to 5 weeks holiday a year, which would normally be expected to be taken in School holidays.
