Chatham Grammar, part of the University of Kent Academies Trust, is seeking to appoint a strategic, motivated and forward-thinking individual for the role of Site and Facilities Manager, who will have overall responsibility for the Academy site and facilities in order to provide a safe, efficient and effective learning environment. The Site and Facilities Manager will be responsible for all aspects of Health & Safety and will manage a team of site and cleaning staff.
