Security and Facilities Services are an integral part of the larger Estates and Facilities Department. They are responsible for supporting and delivering all aspects of security and facilities related services throughout Canterbury. The Security and Facilities Services Team aims to offer and deliver a flexible, value added and professional service to meet the need and expectations of students, staff and visitors.

The Role

We are currently looking to recruit two Security Caretakers to our night provision (18:00hrs – 06:00hrs)

The successful candidates will have experience in security or a related customer service based area. Possessing wider skills in providing basic caretaking duties to meet the full requirements of the role would be an advantage. Experience in the use and monitoring of access control/CCTV systems/fire alarm systems would also be an advantage.

A shift pattern of 4 days on / 4 days off is worked within these posts. You will not be required to work a mixture of days and nights. Start and finish times may vary to maintain the overall flexibility required of the University security staff.


Applicants will be able to demonstrate their customer focused skills together with the ability to communicate verbally, with confidence, at all levels of the Organisation. They must be able to maintain the highest personal standards representing the front facing service of the University and to demonstrate the ability to deal with difficult and occasional stressful circumstances, in order to provide a clean, safe and secure environment for all students, staff and guests of the University. Candidates will be motivated, target driven and keen to learn and develop new or existing professional skills.
