Job Description

Mobile Handyperson

Location: Covering Bedfordshire to Cambridgeshire

Business Area: Facilities Management - Ministry of Justice

Contract: Permanent, full time

Be a VIP in FM.

The Kier Facilities Management team offers an incredibly wide range of innovative management and maintenance solutions, right across the UK - from the RAF Duxford base that welcomes over 20,000 visitors a year, to local fire stations that help protect millions of people. We're a crucial part of Kier Places, providing hard and soft facilities management to hundreds of Government department sites and public buildings - offering you a role that will challenge and reward you, every single day.

As our Handyperson, your role will be key to supporting the delivery of an FM Technical Services solution for our prestigious client Ministry of Justice.

Key Responsibilities

This Handyperson role will carry out general, small repairs (e.g. re-fixing door handles, loose hinges/items, replace slats in blinds, shower fixings and rails) working on our FM contract we hold with the Ministry of Justice. You will carry out maintenance on loose carpeting, hanging and re-fixing items to walls, patching paintwork and minor drain blockages, toilet seat re-fixing and replacement. Small scale movement of furniture and boxes will also be a requirement. This is not an exhaustive list, but as you can see the role will carry out a varying degree of maintenance work.

This is a mobile role that covers Authorised Premises for the Ministry of Justice across the Luton, Bedford & Peterborough area.

Who are we looking for?

This role requires someone with previous experience in a similar all-round general maintenance role and be comfortable working within occupied properties. You will preferably have water hygiene training; however, this can be something the successful applicant can be trained up on. You will have the capability to attempt light plumbing repairs and general lamp replacement.

You will need to have outstanding communication skills and a proactive attitude, alongside some experience within the Building Services, Facilities Management or Property Services sector.

What will you receive?

You can expect a competitive salary and a strong benefits package that includes:

  • Free Life Assurance

  • Access to our valuable pension scheme - Kier Retirement Savings Plan

  • Generous annual leave allowance

  • Options to participate in Cycle2Work and Payroll Giving schemes

  • Two employee Share Scheme options

  • Employee Assistance Programme

  • Access to Kier Rewards, our exclusive Discount Shopping Site with deals available at over 800 retailers

  • Plus, many more benefits geared to your wellbeing

Pre-employment checks

It's worth remembering that if you are successful, we'll undertake the relevant / standard pre-employment checks after you have been offered a job. This includes taking up your references, verifying your right to work in the UK, verifying your driving licence (if applicable) and a health assessment.

Due to the nature of this role, you will also be required to complete a Counter Terrorism Check (applicants with criminal convictions will be treated on a case by case basis. We do not discriminate based on an applicant's criminal record or the details of any offences disclosed to us). Some roles may also be subject to further pre-employment checks.

Make the journey. Leave a legacy.

Being part of Kier means living our values of being Collaborative, Trusted and Focused. We all have the potential to shape our world, and it's through these values that we will leave a lasting legacy. Bring your talent and ambition to Kier and you will be given the scope and opportunity to invest in your own future, to build your expertise and contribute to a rich and diverse culture.
