Place of Work: Various

Accommodation Services supply Caretakers via service level agreements to many East Riding schools, as well as covering Council offices and other premises from Goole to Bridlington to Withernsea and all areas in between.

Servicing such a large geographical area means vacancies often arise at short notice in remote locations which can be hard to attract applicants to fill. The team also face difficulties in retaining staff for roles which can be part-time and may include hours worked early in the morning or in the evening and so can be hard to fit around family life, as well as being physically demanding.

These are vital roles in maintaining frontline Council services and require reliable individuals who can work under their own initiative and as part of a team, have high standards, can work to deadlines and who take satisfaction from a job well done. Experience is not essential, as full training is provided.

To try to improve recruitment in this area, Accommodation Services have a recruitment pool which will contain contact details of those interested in future vacancies and the locations they wish to be considered for.

Rolled up Holiday pay is added to the hourly rate.

Appointment is subject to satisfactory DBS as safeguarding sites may require cover in this area.
