• previous experience in a caretaking / premises management role;
• experience of undertaking routine repairs and maintenance or craft skills in a relevant trade;
• good communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to relate well to staff, governors, pupils and parents;
• knowledge and understanding of health and safety issues relevant to the post;
• the ability to maintain accurate and efficient records
We can offer you:
• The opportunity to work in a brand new, purpose-built, state-of-the-art primary school;

• A working culture built upon trust, value and respect.
