Employment Opportunities - Non Teaching
Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE)
Custodial and Maintenance Employees
Employment opportunities may be permanent or temporary and either full time or part time. Full-time custodians in schools generally work an evening shift – 4:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. In a secondary school, custodians may work either the day or afternoon shift. Custodians are responsible for the cleaning, security and maintenance of our school and office buildings. Candidates for this position should have experience in cleaning or maintenance and be physically able to meet the requirements of the job.
Head custodians work during the day and are responsible for the cleaning and maintenance of the building, as well as co-ordinating the work of custodians. These positions are filled by promoting internal candidates through a job-posting process.
Normally, the entry level for a custodial position is a temporary employee or a floater. Temporary employees or floaters normally work shifts of 4:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. and have qualifications similar to custodians.
The following include some, but not all, of the positions that fall under the Maintenance classification: Mechanical Technician, Electrical Technician, Plumber, Millwright and Carpenter.
