SITE / GROUNDS MAINTENANCE OPERATIVE

A permanent, full-time opportunity exists for a multi-skilled, site/grounds maintenance operative to provide general maintenance of the Company’s buildings and extensive grounds in Slinfold, West Sussex.

Your time will be spent on site carrying out planned and reactive site/grounds maintenance such as grass/hedge cutting, planting, pond maintenance, small repair work, decorating, driving tasks/vehicle cleaning and operating/maintaining garden machinery.  The role is very varied and busy and you will be expected to move from job-to-job throughout the day/week.  No two days are ever the same.

You will need to possess good all-round skills including horticulture/arboriculture/aquaculture, simple plumbing, basic electrical and painting & decorating, as well as a full driving licence in order to drive a van, tractor and minibus (from time-to-time).

To be successful, you will also need to be reliable, honest and trustworthy, someone who is able to get on with the job required with the minimum of supervision and who can use their own initiative to identify what needs to be done.

You must also be physically fit, healthy and an active all-rounder with good communication skills and someone who takes pride in the quality of their work.  Ideally, you will have previous experience in a property maintenance role, possibly having worked in a similar position or for a company covering domestic/commercial premises.

Hours of work are 38¼ per week – 8.30 am to 5.15 pm, Monday to Thursday and 8.30 am to 3.30 pm on Fridays with 45 minutes for lunch each day.
