  • Ensuring all breakdowns, remedial works and inspections are attended and completed within contractual time-frames
  • Overseeing the delivery of minor repair projects and cyclical servicing contracts

    Ideally, you'll also have :

  • A thorough understanding of Lifts (domestic and communal) along with their relation to LOLER, with good technical and practical knowledge.
  • Lifts experience is desirable but we're open to other compliance areas)

  • The ability to review risk assessments and determine the impact of the decisions on our residents
  • Strong communication, negotiating and problem solving skills
