Full -Time Estates Manager responsible for buildings and grounds maintenance and housekeeping


Ludgrove is a thriving full boarding school for boys age 8 to 13, set in beautiful grounds of 130 acres in rural Berkshire, with gardens and woodland in which to play. Its excellent facilities and beautiful surroundings give the boys a wonderful opportunity to develop their interests and talents, use their imagination and, from the start, they are encouraged to involve themselves in a wide variety of activities.

Founded in 1892 we pride ourselves on providing our boys with a happy, caring and safe environment in which to grow and develop as well as to benefit from a well-rounded academic, creative and sporting experience.

Crucial to providing a first class education is the provision of first class facilities. The School is fortunate enough to have some wonderful buildings, both historic and contemporary, in beautiful and extensive grounds. However, we have a long term plan to both upgrade existing facilities and create new ones to reflect the changing demands of the modern educational environment and to meet the academic, pastoral, creative and sporting needs of our boys.

On the retirement of the incumbent we are seeking an Estates Manager to work closely with the Headmaster and Bursar to manage the maintenance and development of the School’s buildings and grounds. Responsibilities will include maintenance and building services, security, Health and Safety, fire risk management, housekeeping, purchasing, school transport and management of third party service contracts.

Candidates must have recent experience of working in a similar or closely related role with an in-depth knowledge of Health and Safety, preferably within a school environment. He or she will have proven management skills, and possess the organisational abilities and interpersonal skills to lead a high level of operational delivery.

Start date: January 2020
