Be the support, be the solution, be up for the challenge.
Maintenance Supervisor - Level 4
£25,128 - £27,966
(NJC37 11 - NJC37 17) + Outstanding Benefits Package
If you’re a handyman or women – bit of DIY here; repairing there; know how to keep a vehicle safe, legal and roadworthy; that sort of thing – and all the while contributing to a positive impact on the lives of young people, then you’ll feel right at home in this job.
You’ll do all the general, day-to-day repairs needed to keep our specialist school up and running, drive the school vehicles and keep them in good working order, as well as making sure the school grounds and garden are kept looking spick and span. Our children and young people have special education needs and your role will be key in creating a safe environment for them. You’ll be a familiar, friendly face and the youngsters will sometimes stop to chat to you. This is something you’ll be comfortable with, but we’ll also give you some training on child safeguarding to give you that extra confidence.
The kind of person we’re looking for will:
• Definitely have some maintenance skills, either professionally or as a DIY enthusiast
• Perhaps skills in joinery, plumbing, electrical, mechanical or building
• Have a calm, happy, helpful way that gets things done without fuss or fanfare
• Be confident taking responsibility for buying smaller pieces of maintenance equipment
• Willingly undertake Health & Safety and other relevant training
• Be happy to undergo a DBS check
Eagle House School provides outstanding schooling for vulnerable young people with a range of complex educational needs. Our sole aim is to support and re-engage our young people with schooling, rebuilding the connections of childhood. Each young person’s set of needs requires a unique approach. Our teachers are there to channel their individual capabilities into academic success, as part of an holistic and uniquely supportive educational strategy – and all of this from a setting that is truly inspiring to both pupils and teachers.
Our large, picturesque campus is surrounded by woodland, with beautiful outdoor spaces and the school building itself is breath-taking. We are very much part of the community here in Walton-on-the-hill, often found on the 10miles of cycle track or on our shuttle bus for staff from the local transport links (commutable from both Croydon and central London). Add to the fact that we’ve installed amazing new learning spaces and a great supporting team and it all adds up to a truly uplifting, fun teaching environment.
We know you’re going to do great things. We offer a salary and benefits package that’s among the best in our sector:
• 35 days’ holiday (including bank holidays)
• Up to 5% contributory pension scheme
• Private Health Care for you and your family
