A very rare opportunity now exists for a General Building Maintenance Handy-person to join our friendly team to work at all company depots throughout Kent and East Sussex, primarily based in Maidstone.

The role involves the building, repair and upkeep of buildings, offices, workshops, yards etc. Jobs to be carried out are determined once a week (apart from emergencies) and the successful applicant is then expected to carry out the work with little/no supervision.

The hours of work would be 0800hrs to 1630hrs Monday to Friday with a half hour lunch break.

Applicants should:

• Have previous building trades experience.

• Have a full clean car driving licence.

o Plumbing

o Minor electrical works

o Roofing, gutters & drainage

o Groundworks

o Brickwork and plastering

• Have a “can do” attitude, and be able to problem solve.

• Be content to work safely on his/her own but also with others.

• Be fully conversant with relevant H&S laws, the use of PPE and strictly adhere to the regulations.

• Be available for very occasional emergency call out work.

We offer a very good package, salary will be commensurate with age and experience, a Company van and mobile phone, as well as good holiday, sickness and pension benefits. The role will suit someone wanting a long term role with the Company that is flexible and can deliver good quality work.
