Cleaners (part time)

Posted 26 October by Reading Blue Coat School

Founded in 1646, Reading Blue Coat is a leading independent day school of 824 pupils; 722 boys aged 11 - 18 and a further 102 girls in the co-educational sixth form which has over 300 pupils.

The School is located on a beautiful 46 acre campus in the village of Sonning, just outside Reading.

The School employs nearly 200 staff, of whom 50% are teaching staff, and provides a stimulating, friendly and supportive atmosphere in which each pupil can realise his or her full intellectual, physical, and creative potential.

We are seeking part time Cleaners to join our busy Housekeeping team on a permanent basis. Normal working days are Monday to Friday throughout the year although consideration will be given to term time only working. Working hours when the School is in full operation will be 05:00 to 09:00 or 16:00 to 20:00 (20 hours per week). Flexibility to adjust normal working hours to support the operational needs of the school and occasional weekend shifts as overtime to cover key school events is essential.

Responsibilities will include efficient and prompt cleaning of offices, classrooms, meeting rooms, dining areas, changing rooms and other areas of the School to maintain a safe, clean and hygienic environment.

Applicants must be able to meet the physical requirements of the role, be energetic, conscientious, work to high standards, work well in a team, as well as confident in working without constant supervision. Some experience of operating cleaning equipment and materials will be an advantage, but not essential as training will be provided.

We offer a very pleasant working environment in superb surroundings; 5 weeks paid holiday plus public holidays (pro rata to contracted period of service); and many other benefits.

Suitable candidates may be interviewed at any time following receipt of application.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service enhanced check.
