PREMISES MANAGER

Required ASAP

37 hours per week/52 weeks per year

Shifts on a rota between 6.00am – 8.00pm, Monday – Friday with some occasional weekend working

Wiltshire Council pay grade H Points 15 – 17 (£24,982 – £27,041)

(The salary package includes onsite accommodation with a minimal rental charge to support the better performance of duties.)

 Governors of The Stonehenge School are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, energetic and ambitious Premises Manager to support the School through its next exciting stage of development and expansion as we progress towards our phase 2 building project.

The successful candidate will support the School’s growth and development by helping to maintain and improve the site whilst taking full account of the needs of the School. This will include interaction with the teaching staff, the senior leadership team and stakeholders.

The Stonehenge School is located in three buildings across a 10 acre campus with The Drove to the south and Holders Road to the north. At its closest point the site is less than 5 minutes’ walk from Amesbury town centre. The Upper School building, opened in 2019, contains Reception and the Finance and SLT offices.

The Middle School building contains all the practical subjects (art, technology, science & drama) as well as English, the library and the main cafeteria. This building underwent a major electrical re-wiring five years ago. Immediately next to middle school is a separate science block containing two large, modern laboratories which opened 10 years ago. Overall the middle school accommodation is in a good state of repair but as you would expect for a building constructed in 1970 it does require fairly frequent maintenance.

The Lower School building dates from 1955. It is the original county secondary school and was constructed to cater for a post war population surge. With the recent opening of the new Upper School facilities we have largely moved out of Lower School and restricted our use of it to the minimum necessary. It contains our main assembly hall, which is also used for PE and GCSE examinations, two PE changing rooms, music rooms and accommodation for our Special Needs & Disabilities (SEND) team. There is also a suite of inclusion rooms known as The Hub. There is also access to a brand new 3G all-weather sports pitch

The new Upper School building comprises Phase 1 of a 2 stage re-build project. Phase 2 consists of the construction of a second new building next to Phase 1. Work is set to begin on phase 2 early in 2022 with completion expected mid-2023.

Candidates are sought who can demonstrate knowledge and experience of:

  • Grounds maintenance
  • Property maintenance and project management
  • Lettings management
  • Statutory facilities compliance
  • Housekeeping
  • Site security – this will include monitoring the security of the school site during evenings and weekends.

The School Premises Manager manages a small team and is supported by the School Business Manager.

It is essential that the successful candidate can demonstrate the following skills, experience and qualities:

  • Awareness of the key requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974)
  • High standards of professionalism, punctuality, appearance and behaviour
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Good computer literacy
  • Good people skills and experience of managing a small team
  • Good problem-solving skills
  • Attention to detail
  • Ability to use own initiative
  • Flexible approach to working hours, demonstrating a ‘Can-do’ attitude
  • A full driving licence

This is a full time, year-round role and will require some weekend and evening working to support School events.

Flexible working may be possible, particularly during School holidays.

Visits to the school are encouraged.

A commitment to help all young people and staff to achieve their best is expected of all staff.
