The restructure and growth of the in-house Property & Design team has created an exciting opportunity for the new post of Building Maintenance Officer.
You will undertake building fabric maintenance inspections, provide considered recommendations to effectively prioritise, cost, organise and manage small value works for a large numbers of requests for unplanned maintenance across a wide range of council buildings. You will also have a very important role in assessing requests and organising works to reduce risk for our most vulnerable service users and staff in Social Care premises. This post will provide an important link between the Property & Design Helpdesk, site managers and help to ensure a quality maintenance service. You will be confident specifying, instructing and overseeing lower value works undertaken by external building contractors. A sound knowledge of building fabric construction, construction Health and Safety legislation, defect diagnosis and providing suitable cost-effective remedial solutions are essential.Educated with a Building Construction diploma / certificate or with a trade background and good practical building repair experience, ideally you should have a minimum of four GCSEs with grades C and above including Maths and English. You’ll have a flexible approach, good communication and organisational skills, the ability to be self-motivated and, in these challenging financial times, not afraid to say no to lower priority requests.
This new post creates a fee through the work it manages. To ensure that this is sustainable for the long-term, the post is initially advertised for a fixed two year period.
Contract: Fixed-term (initially 2 years), Full-time, 37 hours per week
