job description

Are you experienced in maintenance work or building management and looking for a pivotal role in your local community?

A role as a school caretaker in Preston is worth considering!

At Randstad Education, we are recruiting for a Caretaker on behalf of a large Primary School in Preston. This exciting opportunity requires someone to work initially on a temporary basis, with the opportunity to apply permanently.

The position is ongoing for at least 12 weeks, to start 5th May 2019.

The hours will be 37 hours a week, in alternating shifts 6.00am-14.00pm / 10.00am-18.00pm, Monday to Friday.


- Ensure the school site is in a clean, tidy and presentable condition at all times

- Provide a safe and secure environment for students, staff, parents and visitors

- Liaise with staff across the school and provide assistance as problems arise

- (Training on the School's H&S portal will be provided)


As the successful candidate you will have:

- Previous experience of working in a similarly responsible site role, preferably within a school

- An ability to relate well to children and adults alike

- A background in general 'handy-work' or DIY (would be advantageous)

- The willingness to learn and train on the job

- A strong work ethic, the ability to work as part of a team, and a professional and proactive attitude


Our staff have a well-deserved reputation as being the best in Lancashire and as a reward for your hard work and commitment to Randstad you will also benefit from:

- A dedicated, professional and friendly specialist School Support consultant and a branch with 24-hour on-call facilities

- Competitive rates of pay paid weekly, which are fully compliant under the Agency Workers Regulations (AWR, 2011)

- A 'recommend a friend' bonus worth up to £300

- Flexibility to work when and where you want through our network of branches
