Maintenance Manager

St Mary’s Music School is seeking a Maintenance Manager/Senior Janitor to lead the Janitorial, Cleaning and Catering functions at the school. 

The post-holder will have technical ability and experience in buildings, mechanical and electrical matters and knowledge of relevant statutory and regulatory requirements.
