Are you self-motivated, hardworking and reliable? 

Do you have basic handy-person skills such as simple plumbing/joinery work?

The Chalk Hills Academy are currently recruiting for a Site Agent to join our friendly and good-humored Facilities Department to help keep our Academy safe, clean and in a good state of repair. We are seeking a committed Site Agent who will carry out general repairs and maintenance, liaise with contractors and suppliers and ensure our Academy maintains a high level of health and safety. 

The successful candidate will be responsible for:

Key Requirements:

The job involves a considerable level of physical effort between 10-25% of the total working time. Lifting and carrying is also a feature requiring a high level of effort for 5-10% of working time. In addition, the post holder regularly works outdoors and will sometimes be exposed to the weather in doing so. However, this exposure occurs less than 10% of the working time.

Here’s what Ofsted have to say: “The purposeful and caring leadership of the Principal and SLT have created a strong academy identity and a positive ethos shared by all members of the community. The strength of leadership is recognised without exception by the academy’s staff. Students’ behaviour is good, the atmosphere in lessons is calm and studious and attitudes to learning are routinely positive as students want to learn. Students are hugely proud of their academy, they wear their blazers and ties smartly, do not drop litter and look after the modern, purpose-built site impeccably. They stand without instruction when any adult enters a classroom.”

If you are interested in this job opportunity, please do apply today – we look forward to hearing from you!
