The Skylark Federation are looking for a Cleaner to join our welcoming and friendly school at Hamsey. 

The role of a cleaner is crucial to our schools and they are an important member of our team.  We will be sorry to see our current cleaner go after working with us for a number of years.

Hamsey School is a small village primary school.  

We have a lovely caretaker that you would work closely with.

Most of the hours of working would need to be carried out when the school is not open.  The work could be carried out in the morning or the evening.  There would also be hours in holiday time for deep cleaning.

We are a popular group of schools and we would love to welcome you to our
Federation. All training and guidance will be provided for the successful candidate.
This is a role with an East Sussex permanent contract which includes holiday pay and a pension.

This post is covered by the Childcare Disqualification Regulations 2018.  

The school will need to ensure that they are not knowingly employing a person who is disqualified under the 2018 Regulations in connection with relevant childcare provision.  Accordingly, the successful candidate will be required to demonstrate to the school, by completing a self-declaration form as part of the pre-employment checks process, that they have not been disqualified under the 2018 Regulations.  

If the preferred candidate is found to be disqualified under the 2018 Regulations, the offer of employment will be subject to the application by the preferred candidate to Ofsted for a waiver and the receipt of a waiver from Ofsted.
