You will undertake a wide variety of fabric maintenance tasks from joinery, tiling, plastering and brickwork.

Your time will be split between PPM works and reactive maintenance tasks. You will also be required to undertake fabric condition surveys across the estate in your region.

You will typically work Monday – Friday 8am – 5pm plus travel time.

There is also a call out rota which is currently 1 in 4 weekends (You will receive additional payments for this £100 standby + overtime if called out)

About you

  • You should have a background in joinery or building fabric maintenance - with qualifications to match. 
  • You will have experience of working closely with a client across fabric maintenance contracts.
  • You’ll be patient and solution focussed, as well confident communicator who can remain polite and professional in all scenarios.
  • This is a fast-paced contract in which you’ll need to react quickly according to the client’s needs – therefore flexibility with regards to working times is required.
  • You’ll need a full, clean driving licence.
