Due to our school expansion and the opening of our satellite 6th Form centre, we require experienced Cleaners to commence as soon as possible working 5 days per week.  You will have responsibility for providing a clean environment for our staff and pupils.  Duties will include sweeping and vacuuming floors, cleaning and dusting surfaces, plus any other associated tasks as required; you must be willing to use a buffer if required.  You will be working on your own and, at times, the building will be empty.

The trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils and expect all staff to share this commitment. Successful candidates will be subject to all necessary pre-employment checks, including an enhanced DBS, Childcare Disqualification (where applicable), qualifications, medical fitness, identity and right to work. All applicants will be required to provide two suitable references. An online search (and a prohibition check for teachers) will also be carried out as part of due diligence on all short-listed candidates.
