Job Description

Our client is currently seeking a Caretaker/Groundsperson to work at a private residential development in East Molesy, Surrey.

Salary:
£25,200 per annum (£15 per hour)

Working Hours:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 8am - 4:30pm. Saturday 9am - 12:00pm. (4.5 days per week)

Key Requirements:
This role will involve the daily sweeping of footpaths, raking driveways, clearing beds by hand, taking out industrial sized bins for collection, ensuring the grounds and exterior areas are well tidied. The size of the grounds also requires a discreet person who is security conscious.

Working as the custodian, you will be responsible for the hands on, day-to-day tidying and upkeep of this exclusive, and beautifully landscaped grounds.

You will be pro-active and use your initiative to ensure the grounds and all exterior areas are kept clean and tidy. You will also have a good awareness of health & safety, but equally important is a professional, friendly approach, and someone who gives a positive impression of the estate, whilst being security conscious.

Drivers license and own vehicle required to park on-site, site not easily accessed on foot. DBS checks will also be performed.

Requirements:
- A friendly, helpful, professional and security conscious approach with excellent communication skills.
- Passionate about estate presentation, such as the daily sweeping of paths and walkways, raking driveway, clearing beds and borders by hand.
- Work in a pro-active manner and can find solutions.
- Take pride in your work and in the estate, showing attention to detail.
- Able to work well on your own.
- Have good organisational, time-management and customer service skills.
- Own vehicle and drivers license.

Duties:
- Work in a designated routine around the grounds, raking, bed clearing by hand, and walkways swept.
- Taking out the industrial sized bins for collection weekly.
- Effective green waste disposal in woodland.
- Occasional overseeing of outsourced contractors.
- Reporting maintenance issues to the office and management.

As the development is not easily accessed on foot, the role would be better suited to somebody with a drivers licence with access to their own vehicle.

Previous experience working as a Caretaker/Groundsperson would be desirable.
