School Caretakers

Caretakers, Site Support & Maintenance Services for the education, care and social housing sectors.

We primarily recruit people from the Emergency Services and the Military to provide temporary relief caretakers, site support and maintenance services to schools and care homes.

With our pool of over 1,500 people we are rarely more than 20 minutes away and we can provide caretaker and maintenance coverage across England, Wales and parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

Our friendly and proactive team have a real passion for helping others and they want to make a difference to the schools and care homes they are supporting. We have a strong track record working with all types of schools (including local authority, academies, private, free, special) as well as care homes and sheltered housing. Since we launched in 2013 we have successfully completed well over 20,000 projects.

TIB Caretakers

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.
