Strood Academy has a great opportunity and we are now recruiting for the role of Saturday Caretaker.  Our successful candidate will be a committed and self-motivated individual who not only enjoys being part of a team but also enjoys the responsibility that comes with solo-working.  The working basis of the role is every Saturday from 8.30am until 5.30pm (with one hour for lunch) during Term Time. This position will assist the broader Site Team with the care of the school premises, a range of general maintenance duties within the buildings and the grounds whilst ensuring the security of school premises.  Applicants will need a flexible approach to working hours and duties occasionally.

You will also need a good customer service manner as you will interact with external clients.  You will have a general knowledge of Health & Safety, basic IT skills, be able to undertake basic maintenance tasks, and be responsible for the security of the building whilst on duty.  Further duties also include;

  • Overseeing the arrival and departure of lettings
  • Setting up the hall and classrooms ready for assemblies and exams
  • Litter picking
  • Security walk-rounds
  • Compliance checks
  • Any other caretaking duties as required.

The hourly rate for this position is £9.00.  There is scope for additional overtime during the week when members of the Site Team take annual leave throughout the year - any overtime is agreed well in advance.  

Please note that we will be holding interviews on a rolling basis so early applications are encouraged.  

Diversity at our core:  As a Trust, we are passionate about diversity and recognise that as individuals we all bring something unique to the role regardless of age, gender, race, beliefs or disabilities which is why we treat all of our people equally, without compromise.
