EP Collier is a successful school located close to the town centre. We are a vibrant, friendly, multicultural school with a strong, positive ethos. The children in our care benefit from an exciting and effective education where every child is valued as an individual.

We are looking for an enthusiastic, confident, hardworking and self motivated individual to join our professional and friendly team. It would be advantageous to have experience of maintenance, plumbing or DIY but this is not essential.

Duties include opening up and securing the school site, general premises maintenance including gritting of paths in cold weather, security of the buildings and site, storage of chemicals, ensuring the inside and outside environments are well maintained and meet health and safety requirements.

The person we are looking for will:
- Be efficient and able to work under pressure and on own initiative
- Maintain confidentiality
- Carry out routine maintenance checks
- Be willing to contribute to the continued improvement of our school
- Be able to build positive relationships with children and colleagues
