Vacancy Description

We are currently seeking to appoint a committed Site Assistant to complete our site team.
Hillyfield is a seven-form entry school for children aged 2 to 11 years old; at present there are 1200 children on roll and the school will continue to grow over the next three years to reach its full capacity of 1600 children. The school is split over two sites: Hillyfield on the Hill and Hillyfield at the Park. One of our core values is “Creating a sense of belonging”. We ensure that every child is known and loved as an individual and cared for from the moment they enter the school gates.

Our vision for our pupils is clear. We believe that every child who attends our school has their own brilliance and it is our responsibility and privilege to enable them to find and develop their talent. We believe that every child will be academically equipped to succeed at Hillyfield, secondary school and beyond.

The successful candidate will be working across both sites supporting the Premises Manager with the day to day school activities. A Driving licence would be useful but not essential.

Responsibilities include:

Liaising daily with the Premises Manager/School Business Manager on caretaking issues, ensure the security of the school premises. Help maintain the internal and external fabric of the schools premises as a safe working environment, and grounds maintenance of both sites.
