The Site Maintenance Officer & Caretaker role is an integral part of our Operations Team, reporting directly to the Operations Manager and playing a crucial function in ensuring the efficient day to day running of maintenance and building compliance at High Trees.
You will help us ensure our sites are well maintained, welcoming and fit for purpose environments for all our service users and our staff. You will be required to perform health & safety, fire safety, compliance and maintenance checks at all of our venues. These are to all be logged onto our cloud-based health & safety portal (BrightSafe) which will also act as your planner and remind you of what checks are due (full training will be provided). The checks are overseen by the Operations Manager, who you will communicate all issues to. You will be aware of service due dates on our fire panels, extinguishers, security alarms, and boilers, work with external contractors, arrange appointments and book in work.
The role includes general handyperson duties such as basic repairs and decorating, maintenance, (basic) plumbing along with the maintenance of our outdoor spaces at all sites, clearing rubbish/leaves, graffiti removal and general maintenance and cleanliness (though the organisation has a cleaner).
You will provide, for those interested in booking with us, viewings of the sites, greeting people in a warm and friendly manner, and providing them with all the information required. You will be required to provide access and lock up after both service users and staff have used the space, ensuring that the site has been left in an orderly and tidy manner.
As part of the role, you will be on the “on-call list” which, in an emergency, may require you to attend any one of our sites outside of your normal working hours.
