Facilities Management where people come first.


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.

We're currently recruiting for a Premises Officer to maintain the upkeep of the school premises to ensure a safe environment at all times.


Key Responsibilities

In this important role, you will carry out regular inspections, conduct minor repairs and proactively assess areas of potential hazard. You'll also carry out general grounds maintenance and manage any contractors who are working on the site. Any major reported issues would need to be highlighted to the Premises Manager, in order to assess any further work required.


What are we looking for?

Ideally, you'll previously have operated in a trade environment and carried our minor repairs. You'll also have a good understanding of our commitment to the client and be able to build positive relationships with the school staff.


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

  • 24/7 Virtual GP Service, Wellbeing, and 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 an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service 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.
