About the Role

Closing Date:               Monday 1st May 2017

Interview Date:             Monday 8th May 2017

Salary:                         Grade 4 – Scale Point 19 - 21 (£20,804 to £22,204)


We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic person to undertake caretaking duties across both West Thornton Academy Sites. This is a unique opportunity to join a highly individual school who recognise that struggle and failure are the key to success in learning.


The perfect candidate will assist the academy’s Caretaker with undertaking site security, cleaning and maintenance in designated areas and the handling of deliveries, among other duties.


The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate;

  • the ability to work effectively and supportively as a member of the academy site team;
  • ability to identify work priorities, whilst ensuring that lower priority work is kept up to date;
  • ability to act on own initiative, dealing with any unexpected problems that arise;
  • high motivation, enthusiasm and professional standards.


Our learning environments are designed to enable children to become independent and resilient learners equipped for life beyond school in the 21st century. We have a committed staff and leadership team who are raising standards year on year and taking the school forward. West Thornton Academy was judged as Outstanding in its most recent Ofsted inspection in September 2012 and is an exciting place to work.
