Summit Learning Trust has a great opportunity to recruit a Mobile Site Maintenance Assistant to join our established site teams who play a critical part in providing day to day support for our 8 academies. Whilst you’ll join the central trust team, you will be allocated to work across the academies, so it’s key that you have a flexible approach to work and the

Your main role will be to assist the site teams across all 8 academies in the provision of efficient and effective caretaking and cleaning support of the school sites, including general site duties and maintenance work.
