The Repairs and Maintenance Department has the responsibility for carrying out responsive and planned maintenance works and Void properties to Lancaster City Council’s housing and non-housing stock. In order to improve service levels, meet performance targets and increase the working base, the section is recruiting for a skilled Roofer.
The successful candidate will need to be flexible and will be reallocated work according to the volume of work in each work stream. The post holder will be multi-skilled to ensure we can offer the best service and complete a right first-time appointment.
They will demonstrate good working skills and techniques, with an ability to work on their own initiative with minimum supervision. They will ensure their work continues to meet the current high levels of customer satisfaction. With an understanding and experience of working with the Health and Safety at Work Act, they will ensure safe-working practices are applied.
A full current UK Driving Licence is also essential for this post. The post holder will be required to work a transient role around the district, as they will have to travel between locations and travel within the Council’s designated area. Reasonable adjustments can be made for those who are unable to drive due to a disability.
This post is permanent, and it is 37 hours per week working Monday to Thursday, 8.00am to 4.30pm, and Friday, 8.00am to 3.30pm. You are required for operational purposes to work 39 hours per week (as this is in excess of the standard 37-hour week, you will accrue 1 days leave for every 20 days worked).
