Premises Maintenance Operative (Closing date: 24 October 2019)

This is an excellent opportunity to join our premises team. The Premises Maintenance Operatives play a crucial role in maintaining the school site and keeping the school operating on a day-to-day basis. They not only perform the traditional role of caretaker, unlocking and locking the site and other such duties, but also play a crucial role in maintenance. They operate on a shift basis to allow maximum usage of the site through lettings as well as the normal day-to-day school usage, and also to allow for more opportunity for out of hours maintenance work to be conducted.

The premises team consists of four members of staff and is led by the premises manager. In addition there is a further premises consultant who works with the team. The team has its own well equipped maintenance hut, and they are issued with their own uniform and workwear. All members must be multi-skilled and flexible enough to adapt to different jobs and roles, as well as cover different shifts. All members of the team must be able to both work on their own, and also in close co-operation with each other. Reliability and excellent time keeping are a must, and the School places a great deal of trust and responsibility in the premises team members to carry out its everyday operations.

The role of the Premises Maintenance Operatives is a very important one, and there is a great deal of satisfaction to be gained from the completion of the daily tasks and the improvements made to the School. There is an excellent working relationship between the premises team and all other staff, and a very great sense of camaraderie at the School.

The role of the premises maintenance operatives is varied, interesting, worthwhile, and satisfying.

If you think you have these qualities please visit our website - - for further information and an application form. Closing date: noon on Wednesday 24 April 2019

This School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be required to undertake an enhanced clearance by the Disclosure and Barring Service. Applicants must be eligible to work in the UK. Tiffin School is an equal opportunities employer and its policies are followed at all stages of the selection procedure.
