Multi-Skilled Tradesperson

St Edmund's College is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Multi-Skilled Tradesperson.

(Required to start May 2023)

St Edmund’s College offers modern facilities in a magnificent country setting in rural Hertfordshire, providing a safe and stimulating environment for young minds.

We require a tradesperson to work with the Building Projects Manager, maintenance colleagues and other members of the College community, in order to carry out works to keep all systems operating smoothly.

The successful candidate will be able to:

  • Undertake general maintenance repairs.
  • Be able to carry out minor electrical work or repairs.
  • carry out general domestic plumbing repairs (including emergency repairs) – would be an advantage.
  • Be part of the call out team.

Whilst not in a teaching role, as a Multi-skilled Tradesperson, you will be working on a regular basis in a school in a role which gives opportunity for contact with children.  As such, you will be in regulated activity and an enhanced DBS check (which includes children’s barred list information) will be required in advance of appointment.

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility.  As with all College staff members, you will therefore be responsible for providing a safe environment in which children can learn.

  • Additional benefits include free lunch during term time, free parking, pension scheme and Death in Service policy.

If you would like to apply for the position please download an application pack and return your completed application pack to the HR department.

The College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Candidates will be required to undergo relevant Safeguarding Checks. We may seek references on short-listed candidates that will include questions about past disciplinary actions or allegations in relation to behaviour with children and may approach previous employers for information to verify particular experience or qualifications before interview.

This role is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975, 2013 and 2020.
