Contract:          Permanent

We are looking for an experienced Site and resources Manager to join our fantastic team at Barton School. As a Site and Facilities Manager, you will ensure our site is clean and safe in a way that maximises children’s achievement and ability to develop.

This is a great opportunity for a Site and Facilities Manager who wants to influence the outcomes for children with varied and complex needs. Your work will be challenging and rewarding in equal measure and you will be working in a school where we maintain a strong safeguarding culture, where pupils are listened to, respected, and involved in as many decisions as possible.

Quality is always top of our agenda and we pride ourselves on the quality of what we do. We are looking for a Site and Facilities Manager, who shares our vision to build incredible futures by empowering vulnerable young people in the UK, to be happy and to make their way in the world.

Whilst previous experience of working in a Residential School would be desirable, excellent organisational skills and the right motivation, personal qualities and levels of resilience are just as important.

Educated to GCSE English and Maths, you will be calm, engaging, resilient, and have experience in line managing facilities support staff, contractors, Health and Safety and COSHH Regulations as well as motivated to helping every child to reach their potential.
