We have an opportunity for an experienced housing maintenance professional to work within our Response Repairs Section. You will need to be able to work as part of a team to ensure that the work tasks you undertake meet the satisfaction of our tenants.

Maintenance Surveyors undertake a wide range of surveys in order to schedule works and provide specifications for planned jobs. The post holder must be able to investigate, diagnose and resolve technical issues and deal with enquiries from tenants. They also need to monitor and manage contractors employed to undertake the remedial work. Their workload includes delivering adaptations for tenants with a disability and acting promptly to address the reasons for damp in properties.

A minimum of an appropriate HNC or relevant technical surveying qualification or extensive trade knowledge is essential

The role does include out of office hours duties as part of an agreed rota. A vehicle is provided with the post.

This post is exempted under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and, as such, appointment will be conditional upon receipt of a satisfactory response to a check of criminal records via the Disclosure and Barring Service, before the appointment is confirmed. This will include details of cautions, reprimands or final warnings, as well as convictions. A Standard Disclosure will be required.
