Mo Mowlam Academy, Corporation Road, Redcar



37 hours per week – whole time Grade G SCP 9-12 (£25,119 - £26,421) pay award pending

Horizons Specialist Academy Trust consists of seven Academies and one Sixth Form across the Tees Valley and North Yorkshire area serving a population in excess of 800 students with a broad range of learning difficulties.  

The Trust wishes to appoint a Caretaker to join our site management team. The successful candidate will be based at Mo Mowlam Academy in Redcar.

Opportunities to complete a range of premises related training will be available to the successful candidates.  Previous school experience is not essential.

The post holder will work in partnership with the Premises team to: 

  • Ensure the cleanliness of the building/Academy.
  • Supervise cleaners and cleaning as and when required.
  • Carry out repairs and maintenance that are beyond the scope of a competent DIY person and experience in a trade such as joinery or plumbing would be an advantage.
  • Carry out daily and weekly scheduled tasks.
  • Have basic IT skills in order to operate planned maintenance programs.
  • Be responsible for opening and closing as and when required.
  • Be one of the named key holders for the Academy.

The successful candidate will be someone who is keen to maintain high standards and be able to use their own initiative with regard to prioritising their workload and recognising areas in the academy that require attention. Candidates should have some awareness of COSHH, although training will be given.  Although this post is primarily based at Mo Mowlam Academy in Redcar, you may be involved in covering absences and holidays at any of the local academies within the Trust and therefore it is essential that the post holder has their own transport.

As a member of the team, we can offer you: 

  • An inclusive and supportive work environment.  As a Trust, we have achieved Gold Status with Investors in People.
  • Workplace pension scheme
  • Generous holiday entitlement
  • Training and development opportunities
  • Health & Wellbeing - access to a range of advice and support for your physical and mental wellbeing including access to physiotherapy and a free annual flu vaccination.
