Caretaker Supervisor


We are looking for a Caretaker Supervisor to supervise, lead and motivate a team of Caretakers to carry out the day to day duties required to promote the professional, customer focussed support service across the University estate. Caretaker duties include cleaning, portering, minor maintenance and unlicensed security activities across the whole of the University Estate including the Halls of Residence.


As a Supervisor you will be responsible for allocating and monitoring caretakers’ work, undertaking audits and ensuring that the department is staffed and operating effectively. You will also be the first line contact for staff HR issues including conducting Return to Work Interviews and addressing performance issues with staff before escalating them to the coordinator.


You will be required to use IT systems to record and monitor work and be expected to send correspondence to colleagues, management and staff so computer literacy skills are important and necessary for this role. You will be also expected to liaise with colleagues in Cleaning, Administration and Security making good communication skills essential for this role. 


Experience in a similar role would be desirable with evidence of leading and motivating staff.


The University of Wolverhampton celebrates diversity and recognises that difference brings value to our organisation.

As part of our commitment to ensure the diversity of staff body reflects the diversity of the student and local communities we serve, we particularly welcome applications from candidates of Black, Asian, or Ethnic Minority heritage, and candidates who are Disabled (including people who whilst not self-defining as disabled do encounter challenges due to a society that disables them by lack of inclusivity).

We are proud to have been awarded Disability Confident employer status, included in the Stonewall list of employers and are working towards improving our practices against Athena Swan and the Race Equality Charter. We believe in creating an even playing field for all our colleagues, where we can all belong.
