Site Services Maintenance Assistant – Skilled
As a national charity with multiple and varied locations across Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Wales our maintenance team members are busy people!
Due to ongoing growth we are looking for a genuine all-rounder with good customer service skills to join our friendly maintenance team. Your workload will be extremely varied as you help to maintain one of our long-term living sites in Gloucester three days a week, as well as supporting our growing charity retail division (current shops in Gloucester, Cheltenham and Hereford). One day a week you are likely to be asked to work alongside other members of our Site Services team at our other sites.
No two days will be the same as you undertake planned maintenance work which could involve painting, dealing with dripping taps, fixing faulty extractor fans to repairing kitchen cupboards. You will need to be a self-starter as more often than not you will be working independently. As you will be expected to travel between various sites being able to drive is essential for this role.
It is likely that you will have undertaken a similar maintenance role in the past and that you will have practical DIY/maintenance skills and a working knowledge of relevant health and safety legislation. There is huge potential to learn new skills in this hugely rewarding role, which will provide opportunities to bring you into contact with a wide variety of appreciative staff, students and residents.
Apply today and utilise your practical maintenance skills to best effect and feel valued for your contribution to our charity.
