The Buildings Officer role is an integral part of our Operations Team, reporting directly to the Head of Operations and playing a crucial function in ensuring the efficient day to
day running of maintenance and building compliance at High Trees. You will help us ensure our sites are well maintained, welcoming, and fit for purpose environments for all our service users and our staff.
Working alongside our Caretaker, you will ensure all Health & Safety, Fire Safety, compliance and maintenance checks at all of our venues are completed in a timely fashion and logged onto our cloud-based health & safety portal (BrightSafe) which will also act as your planner and remind you of what checks are due (full training will be provided). The checks are overseen by the Head of Operations, who you will communicate all issues to. You will be aware of service due dates on our fire panels, extinguishers, security alarms, boilers and work with external contractors, arrange appointments and book in work.
The role includes general office admin duties such as completing weekly stock checks, arranging appointments, updating calendars, monitoring schedule lists, taking phone calls and responding to emails. You will be responsible for ensuring none of our sites run out of any consumables (stationary, refreshments, toner etc.) flagging any consumables that need to be reordered well in advance of them running out and will be responsive to all ongoing needs. You will provide, for those interested in booking with us, viewings of the sites, greeting people in a warm and friendly manner, providing them with all the information required. You will be required to provide access and lock up after both service users and staff have used the space, ensuring that the site has been left in an orderly and tidy manner.
As part of the role, you will be on the “on call list” which, in an emergency, may require you to attend any one of our sites outside of your normal working hours.
