Guildford Borough Council is looking for a Caretaker, to join our existing team in providing a Caretaking service for the Millmead offices and to maintain/monitor the security of the site.

Duties include the preparation of Committee and meeting rooms and setting up equipment for presentations and exhibitions, plus undertaking minor repairs and maintenance throughout the Millmead Offices.

The Caretaking team monitor deliveries to the complex and maintains the exterior of the complex by ensuring that all pathways are clear, and that the grounds are free of litter and natural debris.
