This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and proactive individual with a proven track record in premises management and Health & Safety to join the team at St John’s.

Future Generation Trust is a small, growing Trust of primary phase academies in Staffordshire.

FGT aims to create a strong positive culture in all of its academies in which valuable life skills will be delivered.  A safe, high quality working and learning environment is essential to achieving this aim.

St. John’s Primary Academy, Essington, is a large, and growing, Church School which works closely with the community.  It is Ofsted rated Outstanding. To continue our improvement it is imperative that we appoint talented members of staff who share our vision of delivering a wide curriculum in a bright, attractive and supportive environment.

To see what type of academy we are please take the time to look at:

The successful candidate will need to align themselves closely with our unique identity and match the high levels of discretionary effort that current staff display.

We believe that St. John’s offers ambitious staff an excellent opportunity to gain valuable experience; in return for high levels of commitment the appointed candidate will receive high quality professional development opportunities and the support of skilled staff.

The duties of the Facilities Manger include:

  • To be responsible for the efficient and effective day-to-day operation of premises management and Health & Safety at the Academy.
  • To directly manage three small operational teams at the Academy through respective team leaders.
  • To plan and prioritise their own work, without direct supervision. (The role will require flexibility in working hours, as the school site is open from 7am until 6.30pm. There is an expectation that the successful candidate will be available to work during some of the school holiday periods, and will therefore have the flexibility to book holidays during term time.)
  • To work collaboratively with other staff at the Academy and across the Trust.

It is strongly recommended that potential candidates arrange a visit to the academy.  Appointments can be made by emailing kim.greenaway@stjohnsprimary.academy either during or outside of school hours.
