Our Caretakers work flexibly as part of a small, friendly team and play a key role in ensuring a pleasant home environment for our students. Based at our Moulsecoomb Halls of Residence, the role will involve general day-to-day maintenance tasks, providing a security presence, general reception-based duties and being a first point of contact for our students and visitors.

In return, the university offers a generous annual leave package, including time off over Christmas, and an attractive pension scheme.
