The Parish Council is the Managing Trustee for the Sunningdale Village Hall Charity and manages the day to day operation of the Village Hall. On this basis, the successful applicant for the role of Caretaker would be employed on a part time, permanent contract by the parish council.

The Council is looking to appoint a friendly, energetic, and reliable individual with a range of practical skills for the role of Caretaker to join our team and contribute to the smooth running of the village hall.

The successful applicant will have a range of duties across the site and should be self-motivated, dependable and trustworthy and able to work under their own initiative to prioritise workloads.

Responsibilities include looking after the security of the building, minoring maintenance requirements and making minor repairs, ensuring the cleanliness of the premises, and preparing the hall for bookings.

Working alongside the Village Hall Operations Team, the caretaker may be needed to attend the hall at irregular hours to help with the overall running of the facilities.

The post is permanent and subject to a period of successful probation. The hours worked will be flexible and consistent with the day to day use of the hall and should not exceed 10 hours per week. 

This role will also be required to provide holiday and sickness cover for the Park Keeping at the Recreation Ground for which overtime will be paid in the months when this work takes place.  The Park Keeper will in return provide holiday and sickness cover to the CareTaker.  It is anticipated that the two roles will work together at times when an area of maintenance or management requires additional resource.

Closing date for return of application is 15 February 2022 with interviews to be held at the beginning of March with the role commencing on or around the 4 April 2022.
