Caretaker for residential apartment block in Brighton, Sussex, (Closing date: 30 August 2019)

Caretaker required for a purpose-built apartment block of 46 flats in the Preston Park area of Brighton. The current occupier of the role retires at the end of 2019. The job includes a salary, a 1-bedroom flat with utilities included, paid holidays and a pension scheme.

The role of Caretaker includes:

    • General cleaning and maintenance duties in the building commonways and lifts, (dusting, vacuum cleaning, washing/polishing, window cleaning etc.)
    • Monitoring and general maintenance of the surrounding grounds, garages and parking areas, (including mowing grass, sweeping leaves, clearing snow from paths, cleaning gutters)
    • Daily collection of bagged rubbish from each flat to transfer to the locked dustbins,
    • Providing access to the bins (waste and recycling) to the Council collection services,
    • Liaison with major building maintenance contractors as appointed by the managing agents,
    • Acting as key holder for residents who request it to enable access for trades people (for boiler service, for example),
    • Taking in parcels if residents are not at home,
    • Generally being on hand to help maintain security and good quality of life in the building.

The role is one where everyday contact with residents and visitors is part of the job, so the successful candidate will need a friendly and helpful personality and be honest and reliable.

Current hours are 39.5 hrs per week - Monday to Friday 8am -12 noon & 1pm - 4.30pm, Saturday 7am – 9am. These could be negotiable for the right candidate.

The Salary is in the range £15,000 - £16,000 p.a. plus accommodation in a 1-bedroom apartment on the ground floor with all utility bills included (Council Tax and phone/internet provision is at the employee’s own cost).

The block is located close to the main London Road into Brighton, opposite the beautiful Preston Park. The freehold is owned jointly by all the flat owners, so it is a local and friendly community where the residents and the Caretaker are also neighbours.
