We are seeking to appoint an experienced and motivated Estates Compliance and Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Co-ordinator to join our growing academy Trust. Reporting to the Head of Estates this key individual will contribute to the effective development of the trusts estates strategy by working closely with a multidisciplinary estates and facilities team to ensure a safe, efficient and effective environment over Laidlaw Schools Trusts growing portfolio.

You will keep the compliance management system up to date and accurate by inputting, monitoring, and verifying data as well as producing a high standard of compliance performance reports to management.

We offer excellent benefits including 31 days holiday (plus public holidays), access to the Local Government Pension Scheme, discounted and free gym access as well as salary sacrifice schemes such as NHS car lease scheme and cycle to work scheme.

Background and experience will be considered when it comes to working out a final employment package with the successful candidate (and the role is not limited to term time only)

We have introduced a number of employee wellbeing initiatives including a healthcare cash plan to support with everyday healthcare costs, access to Perkbox (with a wide variety of discounts and freebies at a range of retailers), financial wellbeing tools and discounted travel schemes.

LST is a growing multi academy trust in the North East of England, serving children and families in the west of Newcastle, Sunderland and Sedgefield. We pride ourselves in being a progressive, inclusive trust that supports every child to develop their talents whatever they may be and to reach their academic potential. It is important that as a learning organisation we adapt and change to the needs of our pupils.
