Caretaker - New Christ Church Primary School

Permanent - Part Time

27.5 hours per week, Monday to Friday, 52 weeks per year
24 days holiday entitlement per year (pro-rata in first year)

Come and join our fabulous team!

A vacancy has arisen for a Caretaker to support the operations of the school site, perform Health & Safety statutory testing and to carry out proactive and reactive premises improvements, to include general repairs/maintenance works, painting and basic plumbing and carpentry. 

We are looking for an enthusiastic and hard-working Caretaker who is passionate about providing a safe and well-maintained environment for our pupils and staff.

Preferably, you will have experience in a similar role, knowledge of health & safety expectations and experience of building maintenance and/or decorating (all desirable but not essential).  

You will have the ability to prioritise tasks and to work positively with a variety of different people.   A sense of humour is a must!

This is a permanent, all year round position – ideally you will work the 27.5 hours in split shifts to allow for the daily opening/closing of the school premises, however, the definitive work pattern will be agreed with the successful candidate.

We have a friendly, family-feel vibe and would strongly encourage you to come and visit to see what a warm and welcoming school we are!

We can offer you:

  • The opportunity to join a supportive and friendly staff team
  • A welcoming and caring ethos
  • A chance to play a significant part in the continuing development of our school
  • Access to a staff well-being package
  • Ongoing training
  • Ongoing support from an experienced Multi-Academy Trust
  • A car park on site
  • A school situated close to a Greggs, chip shop, Pizza and Tesco (not great for a diet!)

To apply or for more information, please contact Mrs Helen Charnick, Office Manager at or telephone 0118 937 5437.

Application packs are available on our school website; please follow the link to ‘Contacts and About Us’ to ‘Work with us’.

Applications will be considered upon receipt.  The school reserves the right to close this advert once sufficient applications have been received

The Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils, staff and parents, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

A Disclosure & Barring Service clearance will be sought for the successful candidate.
