Job Description

Maintenance Engineer (Handyperson)
Location: Gateshead
Salary: £25k

Opportunity

Are you someone with the basics in a number of areas, joinery, painting, landscaping, plumbing, decorating, but possibly specialise in one or two? Are you someone who can turn your hand to anything like Handy Andy from Changing Rooms? We're looking for engineers who have a very broad set of skills to work in on a 43 acre commercial/industrial site in a team where no two days on site will be the same.

The Role

Our client are certainly an exciting proposition, a rapidly growing Facilities Management company who boast some of the largest commercial/industrial clients in the UK. They are able to boast a workforce where progression is a real possibility and the customer is always put first.

We are currently assembling a team of 6 engineers who will as soon as possible take control of the day to day maintenance of an enormous 43acre site in Gateshead. You'll initially report into the Operations Manager - Austin but quickly as things develop this will be a Hard Services Manager. The structure is very flat and as plans develop opportunities will arise, so if you find yourself stuck in a rut and no signs of progression this maybe an opportunity worth considering. As a client the company have a history of providing opportunities to people by promoting internally and then giving us opportunities to backfill.

Ideally you'll be qualified in one trade, but will have probably found yourself having to be resourceful in a number of your roles to date and be a jack of a lot of different trades. Let's face it with over 150 buildings on such a large site, things are going to need maintaining, so your certainly will have a varied workload. You'll have exposure in a number of trades from basic electrical and plumbing work to general building fabrication work including (painting, decorating, joinery, glazing and landscaping, HVAC).

Duties

*repairing all reactive maintenance requirements
*taking part in planned preventative maintenance
*assisting subcontractors where required
*A background in building services maintenance or fabric engineering and a knowledge of general maintenance and repair skills across plumbing, carpentry, M&E.





The Company

Our client are certainly an exciting proposition, a rapidly growing Facilities Management company with their head office in Shropshire but with huge clients UK wide. They have real ambition to continue expanding their portfolio outside of their existing longstanding clients. However the company are also not stupid, they are actually pretty smart and they realise that a company is only as good as the people who work within it, so want to encourage their employees to seek progression and train and develop those looking for it.

Working Hours

*this work is a Monday - Friday role with an element of weekend work on a rota
*working hours are flexible as long as site is covered between 7am-5pm so 7-3pm, 8-4pm or 9-5pm works for them
*You'll be asked to cover a Saturday 1 in 2 on a 4 hour shift or 1 in 4 on an 8 hour shift it's up to you as the candidate, you'll also be given a half day/1full day in that week off to make up for it
*You will be asked to participate in the callout rota for weekends, and are paid half a day or a full day's work depending on how long you're on site, this is 1 weekend in 3

All in all, the client are very flexible and it's up to you as the team of engineers to work out what works best for yourselves.
