Are you fed up of travelling all over London and looking for a local site in Watford? Have you got experience of managing subcontractors and PPM schedules? If yes, then this might be the role for you! We are looking for a maintenance manager for a large static site in Watford.

  • You’ll come from a mechanical background and have experience of being ‘on-the-tools’, specifically with industrial and commercial HVAC plant. A lot of what is onsite is old and complex, so you’ll need a good understanding of this and the ability to react to any issues quickly and effectively. As a result you will need certifications that reflect this i.e. NVQ/City and Guilds in a mechanical discipline
  • You’ll need to be proactive, able to work under pressure and capable of prioritising your own workload.
