During this period of uncertainly, School Caretakers are very much still in demand.
Many schools are still open to the children of Key Workers, and as a result the site needs to be maintained to the same high standards as always. As a popular agency with Schools in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire, Reed Education are continuing to recruit additional caretakers for local work.
The types of work:
Short term assignments covering for sickness and absences in school
Longer term opportunities, many with temporary-to-permanent options for the right person
A variety of hours – many of the roles we recruit for are full time, where you are looking at around 37 hours per week, some are part-time, and others evening or weekend.
As caretaker, you will need to be flexible to the needs of the school, as you will often be guided by what is going on, such as picking up more decorating responsibilities during half term.
General maintenance and minor repairs across the school, including fixing furniture, preparing classrooms and minor painting or decorating
Working with outside contractors for major repair work
Making sure that the school is secure with doors and windows locked when not in use
Arranging classrooms for students and teachers.
Grounds maintenance, including lawns, hedging, beds and ensuring that the school ground is safe and clean.
When you choose Reed Education as your agency to support you in your search for work, you can expect to receive:
