We are looking for a professional and self-motivated individual with good practical maintenance experience, excellent communication skills and the ability to be flexible. Working as part of the Site team, candidates should be able to work proactively and independently to ensure the efficient operation of the Academy campus. 

We are a split site, semi-rural, mixed 11-18 non-selective converter academy with approximately 1520 students, including over 220 students in our Sixth Form.

The vast majority of our staff travel to Beacon from a variety of destinations within the South East, including Brighton, Eastbourne, Lewes and Tunbridge Wells. 

We work meticulously to secure a culture of unapologetically high expectations that are underpinned by our collective, uncompromising belief and ambition for the students of Beacon Academy, and for the experienced, loyal, highly-skilled and highly-effective team of staff that teach them, allowing teachers to teach and students to learn in a school where leadership, management, behaviour and welfare are all judged as outstanding. The Academy is committed to the development of both its staff and students. 

Immediate start is available subject to DBS, health checks and references.  The post is full time (37 hours per week) 52 weeks per year on Single Status Grade 6 which is currently £20,853-£21,695. The working hours will be 9am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and 9am to 4.30pm on Fridays.  Occasionally, flexibility will be required in relation to working hours.  This can be discussed further at interview.   

Deadline for applications: 10am on Monday 30th May 2022

All posts are subject to DBS enhanced clearance, health checks and satisfactory references. Beacon Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
