If you’re a handyman or woman – bit of DIY here; repairing there; know how to keep a vehicle safe, legal and roadworthy; that sort of thing – and all the while contributing to a positive impact on the lives of young people, then you’ll feel right at home in this job.

You’ll do all the general, day-to-day repairs needed to keep our specialist school up and running, drive the school vehicles and keep them in good working order, as well as making sure the school grounds and garden are kept looking spick and span. Our children and young people have special education needs and your role will be key in creating a safe environment for them. You’ll be a familiar, friendly face and the youngsters will sometimes stop to chat to you. This is something you’ll be comfortable with, but we’ll also give you some training on child safeguarding to give you that extra confidence.

About you

The kind of person we’re looking for will:

  • Definitely have some maintenance skills, either professionally or as a DIY enthusiast
  • Perhaps skills in joinery, plumbing, electrical, mechanical or building
  • Have a calm, happy, helpful way that gets things done without fuss or fanfare
  • Be confident taking responsibility for buying smaller pieces of maintenance equipment
  • Willingly undertake Health & Safety and other relevant training
  • Be happy to undergo a DBS check
