Temporary Maintenance Officer required for a minimum period 3 months. My client is a medium sized housing association based less than 20 miles from Edinburgh. Due to retirement of one of their experienced team they need temporary cover while they recruit for the role on a permanent basis.
You will be joining an experienced team and will primarily be dealing with reactive repairs. My client is looking for a professional with extensive experience as a maintenance or technical officer ideally from an RSL environment but would consider candidates with local authority background. You will need excellent communication skills as you will not only be dealing with tenants but also liaising with the in-house trades team to ensure all repairs are done in a timely and professional manner. Competent IT skills are essential for this role. The majority of properties you will be visiting will be within a 20 mile radius but your own vehicle and driving license is required. For any business mileage done you will receive 45p per mile.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a well-regarded housing association. My client is open to freelance candidates but also open to those ideally looking for permanent roles. The candidate who takes on the temporary role will have the opportunity to apply for the permanent role when the application process is open.
