Furze Platt is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. At Furze Platt, 1400 students of all abilities develop the skills and qualities to enable them to excel in the future. We are a highly ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school in which our students are challenged and supported to achieve excellence.
We are looking for a Site Assistant to join our well-established site team who work together to ensure that our school buildings and school estate are maintained to a high standard and remain secure at all times. This is a varied role where you will work with the team to ensure that the school estate is kept safe, tidy and to a good level of aesthetic standard, by keeping exterior roads, paths, steps and walkways clear and safe in all weather conditions. Grounds maintenance duties such as disposal of rubbish, and clearing gutters is also important.
As well as the above you will support with external lettings and other events. This will include liaising with staff and hirers to meet their needs, setting up rooms and halls for a variety of events and moving furniture. Cleaning and minor maintenance work such as installations, renovations, and redecoration is also a fundamental part of this role. We offer training and lots of opportunities to acquire new skills that will help you to develop in this role.
We are interested in applicants who may have some experience in working in a maintenance role or who are able to undertake minor maintenance activities such as gardening, repairs and painting. You must also be physically fit, and able to move furniture and lift and use step ladders. Good organisational and time management skills are a must as well as the ability to meet deadlines and work in a flexible manner. If you are a team player who would relish the opportunity to work in a community/ environment where no two days are the same, then we would love to hear from you.
