Can you enrich the lives of young people as a Caretaker?

We are looking for a responsible, hands-on Caretaker to join our brand new team at our new Options School based in London. As Caretaker, you will help support our children and young people in their daily lives, by ensuring our sites are well maintained and equipped to meet their needs.

This is a great opportunity to work as part of a team committed to helping children with varied and complex needs. You will take pride in maintaining our school, from day to day repairs to completing risk assessments, carrying out security procedures, checking equipment and contributing to school development projects.

For many of our children, consistency is key, and our Caretaker take time to make sure everything is as it should be for us to run smoothly and safely.

You will be quality focused, efficient, able to work at pace, and motivated to help us provide a safe, caring environment where every child can thrive.
