The Site Maintenance Officer & Caretaker role is an integral part of our Operations Team, reporting directly to the Operations Manager 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.

You will be required to perform health and safety, fire safety, compliance and maintenance checks at all our venues, logging these on our system when completed and reporting any issues with the sites to your Manager. You will keep High Trees compliant, organising the services on our fire panels, extinguishers, security alarms, boilers etc, arranging appointments and booking in work with external contractors when needed (our in-house system will alert you when these checks are due).

The role includes general handyperson duties such as basic repairs and decorating, maintenance, along with the maintenance of our outdoor spaces at all sites, clearing rubbish/leaves, graffiti removal and general maintenance and cleanliness (though the organisation has a cleaner).

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.
