If you’re physically fit, versatile, self-motivated and driven, with experience of Fencing, Estate Maintenance, Property Clearance, Waste Management, day-to-day repairs or similar technical work, join Optivo as a Maintenance Operative.
As a part of our Sussex team, based out of Haywood Way in Hastings, you will help Optivo maintain our properties, estates and neighbourhoods by completing works including:
• Fencing Repairs & Installations.
• Void Property Clearances and Minor Property Repairs.
• Bulk Waste / Fly-Tip Collection and Disposal.
• Garden Clearances and Grounds Maintenance.
• Office Maintenance and Repairs.
• Garage Inspections, Lock Changes and clearances.
• Graffiti Removal.
You may also be asked to complete inspections and surveys for the above works.
Please note that this role is being offered on a 12-month Fixed Term Contract / Secondment.
What you’ll need
As part of a tight-knit team, you will be required to work closely with others, supporting colleagues both within Direct Services and other teams across the business. You must also be customer focused, with great interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate clearly and concisely with colleagues, partners and in particular, our residents.
However, you will also need the ability to work alone, be self-motivated and able to solve technical challenges as they arise on site. Customer Satisfaction is a priority whilst working safely, efficiently and productively with value for money in mind.
Working safely is paramount and you would be required to complete, understand and follow detailed written Risk Assessments on a daily basis.
A good level of numeracy and literacy would be an advantage, as would experience of using mobile devices. Stock control and the accurate recording of work, time and costs is an important requirement of the role.
Technical skills within the above specified areas of work are preferred, but not essential as training will be provided. Any other additional technical skills that may enable us to expand our services in the future would also be of interest. You may be required to drive a 3.5 tonne tipper and other various, smaller fleet vehicles daily, both safely and legally.
If you would like further information, feel free to call:
Graeme Hodges, Direct Services Manager. T: 020 803 62222. M: 07725 736 020.
Closing date: 7th December 2022 at 23:59pm. Interview date: 16th December 2022.

Inclusion and Diversity
At Optivo we work hard to create a diverse and inclusive culture and environment where people are respected for who they are. Encouraging inclusion is not just about protected characteristics, it’s about celebrating differences of thought, opinion, experience and perspective of each individual. We’re all different in our own way and we want our colleagues to feel comfortable, that they belong, and are safe to be themselves at work, without fear of being judged or excluded, but valued for their contribution to our One Team approach.
