The Community Centre Committee was disappointed to learn that there have been no applicants for the job of Caretaker at the Centre. The post has been advertised widely throughout the village as well as throughout the CW&C area, but no-one has come forward. The job is for 15 hours a week, and though the advertised hours are 6.30am to 9.30am a degree of flexibility is required to meet the needs of Community Centre users.

The person appointed will work for Qwest Services, a company formed by Cheshire West, Cheshire East and ENGIE, that provides a range of maintenance and cleaning services throughout the area. They will report to the local Cleaning Manager. However, the job will involve building a relationship with the Community Centre Committee who realise that a strong working relationship with the Caretaker is essential to the smooth running of the Community Centre.

Chairman Alan Wilkinson said "Ideally we are hoping that the person appointed can become part of the team. The Community Centre pays a substantial sum to CW&C to cover the cost of caretaking services and we do expect that we should get a good service in return. At the moment we receive a service from a variety of staff who arrive late at night and, though they are very willing and capable, it is almost impossible to build a good working relationship under these circumstances."

The full job description can be found in the Foyer of the Community Centre or on-line here. However, if you would like to have an informal talk to the Chairman, do give Alan a ring on 01829 740868. He will be delighted to help 'personalise' the rather formal words in the advert.
