Working at St Helens Borough Council

St Helens is a transformational Council which is passionate and ambitious for the communities we support. We provide a wide range of local authority services to the residents, businesses, schools, and visitors to the borough.

We can only do this because of our highly valued, highly skilled workforce.

Working together, our workplace vision and values guide our organisation, and the contribution of our workforce is key to our culture journey. Employees with us receive a wide range of benefits including well-being in work, financial benefits, ways of working and learning and development support.

Making A Difference as a Caretaker in Schools Traded Services.

We have a vacancy for a Caretaker at Wargrave Primary School. The hours of work are 27.50 per week. These hours are normally worked Monday to Friday from 7.00am - 12.30pm (variable to meet the needs of the service).

With responsibility for the care, security and operational effectiveness in our teams, our caretakers have a very important role in supporting our schools.

Our Caretakers undertake a wide variety of tasks and responsibilities from being key holders, organising contractors to carry out repairs, storage of cleaning equipment, ventilation management, grounds maintenance and much more!

Our Caretakers need to demonstrate a good working practice of the cleaning sector and be able to work with safe working practices utilising their knowledge of health and safety procedures and hazards.

Because our caretakers work with a wide range of people inside and outside the school good communication skills and the ability to handle situations sensitively is a must. Organisation is important for our caretakers, whether that be for the organisation of work with and through others, or for completing routine paperwork!
