Groundsperson – The Perse School



Due to the continuing growth of our busy Grounds and Gardens department, we are looking to recruit a Groundsperson. The department is responsible for the maintenance of 76 acres split between the Upper School, Prep School, Pelican School, Porson Road sports field, and the Perse Playing Fields at Abington. Using the department vehicles, the team works flexibly across all sites. The role will involve maintaining the day to day upkeep of the hard and soft areas of the grounds, and ensuring that the sports pitches are safe and fit for use and that all areas appear well maintained at all times, across all sites. Previous grounds experience is essential for the role, and a trade related NVQ would be an advantage.

The Perse School Cambridge is one of the country’s leading independent co-educational day schools for children aged 3-18, who attend our Pelican, Prep or Upper.

Our aim is to be a leading employer of choice. This means we strive to be a school where staff say they are proud and excited to work, and feel valued, respected and motivated.

We are committed to providing a very competitive salary and benefits scheme at the same time as offering a wide range of opportunities for personal and professional development. We want our staff to feel engaged and purposeful so that they, in turn, help pupils to be happy and successful.

Closing date: 24th May 2024 at midday but applications will be considered as they are received; The Perse School reserves the right to make an appointment before the closing date.

The School actively supports equality, diversity and inclusion and encourages applications from all sections of society.
