Accountable to: Principal of Drapers’ Pyrgo Priory School


We are seeking to appoint a highly effective, enthusiastic and experienced caretaker to join our friendly and supportive team. You will work with our existing caretaker as part of a team to make sure the school site is safe, secure and ready for use by pupils, staff and other school users. The site staff are expected to work flexibly and share an early and late shift and be pro-active in keeping the school safe and secure.

The role is varied and includes cleaning responsibilities, repairs and maintenance, site safety and security, portering and other jobs as required.
