Multi Skilled Engineer

Job Description

So, you’re an engineer looking for a new job…finding the perfect job doesn’t have to be as hard as knocking down a brick wall. How about an exciting role working on a military estate in support of our Army customers? Join a great team at Aspire Defence Services…

As an engineer your goal is not just to fix problems but to find lasting solutions. You’re the kind of person that can tell when it’s about to snow just from observing the wind. It’s that level of attention to detail that makes you great at your job, especially when performing building maintenance duties.

You’re not only experienced in all aspects of multi skilled B&CE work such as painting and decorating, laying carpet tiles, paving, brickwork, replacing ceiling tiles, patch plastering repairs, but you also understand how to work across multiple locations, showing up whenever and wherever you’re needed to get the job done, kind of like Father Christmas delivering presents on Christmas Eve.

And just like Christmas brings cheer and joy to everyone, you provide your customers the best kind of service you can give, making sure that you leave them not only feeling good about the work you’ve done but happy about the way you interacted with them.

And when it comes to making notes, you write down any and everything because you know how important it is to keep a detailed record of maintenance works. You’re sociable and work well with others, which is important because even though you’ll be working independently, you won’t be alone. You’ll also be eager to learn more because there’ll always be room for growth.

But first, meet the team…

With a 35-year contract, making soldiers’ lives better is at the heart of everything we do at Aspire Defence Services.

Seriously, picture a heart (the real one) and imagine how hard it works to keep the body running, making sure every part gets exactly what it needs to thrive. That’s our mission; to deliver a modern, fully serviced, flexible working environment for soldiers.

And just as the heart needs certain parts to keep the body alive, we need the dedication and commitment of our people to support our customers. We deliver a broad range of services for one-third of the British Army living and working on our patch, and we're proud of the work we do.

We’re all about nurturing great teams, and our award-winning safety and wellbeing initiatives are built on keeping an eye out for one another and having a good work-life balance.

In addition to being part of our team, you’ll also get…

  • 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays, as well as the option to buy and sell holiday
  • Contributory Company Pension Plan matched up to 6%, plus individual life assurance
  • A van and fuel card for business travel
  • Free mileage from home to work
  • Tools to support you in your new role
  • Uniform and PPE
  • A shopping discounts scheme
  • Employee assistance and health and wellbeing check ins
  • Reward and recognition to celebrate outstanding achievements
  • Free on-site parking
