We have KCSIE and Enhanced DBS checked school caretakers, premises officers and site managers available to support schools across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. We provide both agency supply site staff and permanent caretaker recruitment services.
We recruit mature, responsible and community minded people primarily from the emergency services and British military. We look for people who really want to help in their local community and who want to make a difference to the schools they are supporting.
Each team member brings extensive transferable skills from their professional backgrounds which are integral to being an excellent caretaker. These include outstanding communication skills, the ability to think on their feet to solve problems and great practical skills.
In addition to school’s DfE Keeping Children Safe in Education vetting requirements, all new caretakers undergo a rigorous selection process to ensure their suitability to working as school site staff. They are individually interviewed by our Vetting & Safeguarding Specialists, who are all retired career police officers with a lifetime experience interviewing and a deep understanding of our responsibility to safeguard children at the schools we support.
With our pool of over 3,500 people we can cover the whole UK and operatives usually live within 20 minutes of schools they are supporting.

TIB Services Ltd was founded as ‘Trust in Blue’ in 2013 by Nick Orde-Powlett. The company piloted with a team of retired police officers in South London before expanding across the UK.
Initially TIB provided handyman and decorating services to private domestic clients, mainly vulnerable adults. Over time the company has transformed into a commercial facilities and maintenance provider, primarily providing caretakers to schools and care homes.
We have two teams, a maintenance team and a caretaking team.
Our maintenance team is comprised of qualified tradespeople, general maintenance operatives and decorators, all with prior commercial maintenance experience.
Our caretaking team is made up of individuals who are competent and confident DIYers able to assist with everyday light maintenance. Many of our qualified tradespeople also enjoy supporting schools with relief caretaking.
