Say ‘Yes’ to an Outstanding College! New College was inspected by OfSTED in 2014 and was graded Outstanding in all areas

We are looking for a Site Assistant to work as part of our Estates Team maintaining the college buildings, grounds and security of the site. The successful candidate must have previous experience of general maintenance work, confidence in using a variety of basic DIY tools and equipment and the ability to cope with the physical requirements of the role. In addition, an ability to work effectively individually or as part of a team and a customer service approach to work are also essential.

The Site Assistants work as part of a team on a rota basis, covering early, days and late shift patterns.

In return, we can offer:

  • An outstanding place to work (the college is regularly near the top of UK Sixth Form College results tables). 
  • An excellent remuneration and reward package for outstanding employees. 
  • Opportunities for career progression and development. 
  • Involvement in a number of exciting new projects (eg, Teaching School, Free School). 
  • A dynamic, driven and supportive culture for staff and students. 
  • Excellent benefits (such as an on-site, staff only gym).

New College is easy to get to, linked closely to the main motorway network by the M62 and M1 and commutable from Leeds, Wakefield, Sheffield and much of the North of England.

The College is currently in the process of setting up a multi-academy trust so there may be the opportunity or need for travelling between multiple sites on occasion.

If you believe that you have the skills and abilities to take on this role, we’d love to hear from you.
