We want them to help us shape services that meets the needs of today and tomorrow, and we can only achieve our boldest ambitions if we work collaboratively to understand what our community needs and wants. As such, when you join our team you will find an exciting working environment, with the full support of both council employees and the residents who are keen to see you excel in your work.

As you will be working in partnership with a plumbing, carpentry, and electrical teams, you will have the capacity to both manage your own workload and collaborate with other colleagues to get the job done. As such you will be a team-player who has excellent communication skills, and you will be IT literate. preferably you have a knowledge of high-rise heating and water systems, and you will be able to make decisions autonomously. With the capacity to understand construction drawings and specifications, you will also have a good awareness of building regulations and compliance, plus a working knowledge of statutory legislation relating to health and safety. You’ll be keen to learn and develop through the training program and will also need a driving licence, as you will have the use of a company vehicle, plus a fuel card and be supplied a tool kit.

Furthermore, you can look forward to a package that includes a competitive salary, a high-quality pension scheme and generous annual leave plus bank holidays.
