Further Information

The Executive Headteacher, School Business Manager and Governing body of Ryton Infant and Junior School Federation are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, skilled and self-driven person to be responsible for the maintenance of our school to ensure it is a healthy, safe and inviting environment for all users.

You will be able to undertake general repairs and maintenance around the site as well as working with the School Business Manager to initiate and work with contractors on larger repairs and improvements. Ensuring Health and Safety policies and procedures are in place and adhered to, such as Fire, COSHH, water hygiene cleaning is a key part of this role.

You will be required to take your annual leave in the school holidays and be flexible when choosing them to accommodate repair and maintenance work which can only be carried out when pupils are not on site.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about providing the best service possible to our community. You will need to be self-motivated and able to manage your own time but also take direction and work collaboratively with all members of the school team. You will often be faced with several requests so an ability to prioritise and communicate effectively is essential.

This is a large site covering 3 buildings and extensive grounds so there will be considerable movement between premises throughout your shifts.
