As part of the Building Maintenance Team the successful candidates will provide a reactive and planned maintenance service operating in a busy, fast paced environment within the required campus zone.
This role is mainly joinery based, however, flexibility to fulfil other maintenance functions will be required. Planned maintenance will form a large majority of daily activity ensuring statutory requirements are achieved. The majority of work is of a physical nature and as such requires manual handling ability to carry tools and equipment across campus, the ability to ascend and descend ladders when required, and the dexterity to undertake a range of work tasks to adjust, install, and/or repair fixture and fittings.
A technical knowledge of Health and Safety guidelines and standards such as BS9999 is essential as periodic testing of woodwork will put this knowledge into practice regularly. An ability to work as part of a team or alone; to follow work procedures, instructions, and use own initiative; as well as the ability to manage work load and complete jobs in a timely manner is required.
As a visible uniformed representative of the University a professional, positive, approachable, customer focused attitude is essential as interaction with students, staff, visitors, and members of the public will be an important part of this role.
About the Team
The Department of Estates and Facilities Management (EFM) at the University of Sheffield is responsible for maintaining the University’s buildings, facilities, and grounds; managing its property and facilities; and procuring new buildings.
The University’s estate contains a wide and varied range of properties which understandably present their own challenges. Some, such as the Arts Tower, are of great architectural importance and must be preserved as part of our national heritage, whilst others such as the award winning Information Commons and the Students’ Union are modern and sophisticated in their design and servicing.
Engineering and Maintenance within EFM is split into three distinct campus zones: East, West, and Outer. Each zone team operates to ensure the University estate is kept to the first class standard expected from a world renowned University.
