You should be hardworking and a ‘self-starter’ in possession of good mechanical, organisational and interpersonal skills. You must be capable of multitasking, working to deadlines and priorities whilst working within an environment where manual handling, working at heights or working with contract staff is a regular occurrence.

Responsibilities will include the opening/securing of sites, basic repairs, completion of a planned preventative maintenance schedule, setting up of furniture as and when required, the removal of external litter/rubbish daily and the supervision of contractors/visitors. Additional duties include dealing with graffiti/vandalism and snow/ice clearance of designated walkways during the winter months.

It is essential applicants have the ability to work as an individual or as part of a team at any of the College sites and a willingness to develop their own skills and those they work alongside. You should possess a current driving licence and be able to travel between sites when required.

Applicants should be able to demonstrate, in their personal statement, practical examples of how they fulfil the person specification.

Due to the nature of this post you will be required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure Check.
