An opportunity has arisen at an amazing Primary School in Lewisham for a Caretaker to join their team. The successful candidate will need to be flexible, well organised and willing to become part of a friendly, welcoming workforce, which supports the needs of each child within the school.

The school has been recently refurbished and has extensive grounds, which includes a large playing field.
