  • Previous experience as a Facilities Manager or related Maintenance Management role.
  • Proven ability to carry out a range of general maintenance tasks.
  • A working knowledge and understanding of health and safety legislation, regulations and codes of practice.
  • Effective communication and liaison skills and capacity to communicate with our tenants who may have learning disabilities and other communication needs.
  • Problem-solving skills and a step by step – planned approach to work.
  • Ability to use standard powered and non-powered tools.
  • Good IT skills and ability to create and maintain accurate written and electronic records.
  • Qualification in Facilities Management or Institution of Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH) or NEBOSH (desirable).
