Here at The Isle of Wight College we work with a number of employers, in a vast array of industries. A fantastic opportunity has arisen to work for Quarr Abbey as a Property Maintenance Apprentice.
Quarr Abbey is home to a Community of Benedictine Monks. It is where the Monks live, work and pray. The current buildings are over century old and need continual maintenance, repair and renewal. In addition, we undertake new building works too such as re-roofing and building renovations. Parts of the site are Grade 1 listed so special care and techniques are particularly required in those areas. The skilled works team make doors and windows, furniture and other bespoke pieces for the site. Quarr Abbey has a rich spiritual history and to find out more please visit quarrabbey.org
Duties and Responsibilities will include:
We are looking for a keen, enthusiastic Property Maintenance Apprentice to work within our existing small team of experienced tradespeople. Due to the very special nature of the Quarr site there is always a wide variety of tasks to do so we are looking for someone who is flexible and can adapt but also is equally happy to carry out routine works too. We are looking for someone who ideally has some knowledge of the industry but if not, full information sharing will be made available.
ANY APPLICATIONS THAT ARE SUBMITTED WITH ONLY A CV AND NO COVER LETTER WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
Closing date for applications will be Friday 18th June 2021, and interviews for successful applicants, which will be held shortly after.
Your details will be processed and recorded in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
