We are currently recruiting for a Facilities Technician to join the team. The role will include taking responsibility for health and safety, general decoration, maintenance and repair throughout the Home.
The facilities technician takes responsibility for health and safety, general decoration, maintenance and repair throughout the home, including the garden and grounds. This role is absolutely vital to the safety and wellbeing of residents, staff and visitors.
Reporting to the head of facilities, the facilities technician’s duties are many and varied. They include arranging regular fire and smoke alarm tests, checking that drains, guttering, bathrooms, windows and all other pieces of equipment are fully operational at all times, reporting faults promptly and overseeing repair by external contractors. The facilities technician must also maintain accurate records, keep the garden and grounds tidy and free from obstruction and, overall, maintain a safe and clean environment, both internally and externally.
Because of the nature of the work this may not necessarily be a nine to five role as some on-call support will be needed. But for the right person it will be an exciting, varied and responsible role. To be successful, the facilities technician needs a sound knowledge of property maintenance and repairs, skills such as basic plumbing and electrics, bags of enthusiasm and the ability to work hard – often on their own – to manage their time, prioritise tasks effectively and use their own initiative.Apply now
