    Dates:                          Apply by Monday, 16th October 2017.  Employment begins November 2017                                                               

    Contract type:               Casual in the first instance – to be reviewed as the facility becomes established

    Hours:                          Saturdays and Sundays - maximum 16 hours per week

    Salary:                          Living Wage - £16,303 per annum (pro rata) - £8.45 per hour

    Location:                      Ss John Fisher & Thomas More RC High School, Gibfield Road, Colne, Lancashire


    Pendle’s only Football Foundation backed, full size 3G Astroturf is now open for school and community use. This is the only full sized FIFA approved pitch in East Lancashire which is marked for 5, 7, 9 and 11 a-side football and will host a variety of FA programmes and fully support school and community club use.

    We wish to appoint an enthusiastic, trustworthy and flexible individual to join us at Fisher More and play an important part in the usage of our school facilities.  We envisage that the post-holder will be working from 9.30am to 4.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays.  The ability to cover the mid-week supervisor at times of annual leave, etc is essential.  Already the pitch is almost fully booked but we would require some flexibility on the part of the post-holder initially whilst the pitch use is developed.  For this reason the employment is initially on a casual basis, but will be reviewed in 2018 once the facility has become established.

    Duties include maintaining security and supervision of the site and operating a booking in and out system for hirers of the facilities.  The post-holder will also take care of the 3G Astroturf and Sports Hall, using equipment provided.

    If you are interested in joining our school at this exciting time in its development, further information, including an application form, can be found by clicking on the links below.  For an informal chat about the role, please contact Mr Simon Atkin, Assistant Headteacher at the school. Letters of application outlining any relevant experience for the role and completed application forms should be submitted to the Headteacher by 3.30pm, Monday, 16th October 2017.
