Full time

The Peripatetic Caretaking Service is an essential support service offered, primarily, to schools with the aim of providing a seamless transition of caretaking cover when a school caretaker has a period of sickness absence.

The job forms part of a dedicated and professional team of caretakers responsible for ensuring that the individual caretaking requirements of a school are met in full including the routine tasks of opening and preparing the school ready for daily use, minor repair and maintenance work, lettings, cleaning and security.

A flexible and responsive approach to work is required as there will be occasions when it will be necessary to work additional hours in response to high service demands and be able to effectively cope with the operational aspects of looking after more than one location.

Travel is an essential part of this job and therefore it would be extremely difficult for you to do your job effectively if you did not use a car for all or most of the time.  It is essential that you hold a full and valid driving licence and it is expected that you will either use a Council vehicle or your own car. 

If you would like to talk to someone about this role please contact the Recruiting Manager Sarah Mason on 07528-988057 or email

This job is subject to an enhanced DBS check.  A conviction may not exclude candidates from appointment but will be considered as part of the recruitment process.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable adults and children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
