Job Description

Job Title:Facilities Maintenance Engineer (Southampton)
Salary: £26,500 plus van, fuel card and benefits

The Opportunity
Would you like to work for one of the UK's best well-loved retailers? Do you want to work in a quality-focused environment where you'll really make a difference?

We're one of the biggest high street names looking for a Facilities Maintenance Engineer to help us become the best in our business by looking after our stores across Hampshire. You'll be working in-house directly for us so will develop great relationships with the rest of our property team to ensure our stores and facilities continue to look and feel the part.

The Role
In your new Facilities Maintenance Engineer role you'll oversee the mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fabric works of around 20 stores across your territory, focusing on finding long term solutions for reactive works and attending PPMs when needed.

Reporting into a Regional Supervisor and with the support of an internal FM service desk team a lot of how you manage your facilities will be up to you. You'll cover M&E maintenance, planned and reactive works, general building maintenance duties, PAT testing, emergency light and fire alarm inspections, basic HVAC, building condition surveys and will also coordinate small works projects with external contractors.

Our Facilities Maintenance Engineers work a 40 hours per week (paid door to door) and any further hours are paid at overtime rates. You'll work towards performance based bonuses and will work closely with the Service Desk to manage your workload.

On some days you may travel to 5 sites, on others you may stay at 1, this is a flexible role depending on what issues come up in your region.

The Candidate
If you have a facilities maintenance background we'd love to hear from you.

To be able to hit the ground running a background in electrical engineering or 17th Edition qualification would be an advantage but you will cover the full remit of mechanical, electrical and fabric work so your job will always be varied.

As Facilities Maintenance Engineer you'll travel from home to site and will be working in potentially more than one location in the day. As you manage your own diary this role will suit an individual who can manage their time well. You'll be meeting and greeting customers and contractors on a daily basis so to enjoy the role you'll need to be a people person.

If you enjoy solving complex problems and working in a role where no two days will be the same this is the job for you.
The Company
Despite being a large organisation we pride ourselves on having a close relationship with our customers and internally we operate more like an independent business. Our employees are given a lot of autonomy and are encouraged to suggest new ideas to drive the business forward.

Our FM team has just gone through a big transition phase and to help with our continued growth and ensure we provide a quality-led service we're looking for a Facilities Maintenance Engineer who shares that vision.

This is a great chance to join a well-renowned company and a strong client-side FM team with lots of opportunity to develop.
