Can you deliver customer focussed Estate Services?

We're looking for a skilled Community Caretaker to bring their expertise to the Environmental Services Team in Derby. You will need to enjoy working with people and be able to use your knowledge and experience to make a real difference to our communities and our customers.

With experience of caretaking, you'll be responsible for the removal of bulky rubbish items from communal areas on the estate. You'll be responsible for communicating requirements and report incidents.

You will be required to cover the following estates:

  • Alvaston estate

  • Harold Court (Livesmart Scheme)

  • Normanton estate

In addition to managing work schedules and maintaining records, you'll be able to use a range of tools and carry out cleaning tasks and monitor estate activity. This is a varied and challenging role, which requires commitment, good customer care skills, the ability to communicate effectively, and a 'can do' mentality.

You will often be working alone and therefore need to be able to work on your own initiative and be self-motivated to organise your own time effectively. You will need to be proactive in your daily activities and aware of safe working practices. You'll have the ability to deal with members of the public, staff and community representatives in a courteous, effective and professional manner.

In order to be successful, you will have strong communications skills as well as a basic level of literacy.

If this sounds like an opportunity you'd be interested in, we look forward to hearing from you.

Closing Date: Monday 28th September 2020 at midnight

Interviews will be held via Microsoft Teams on Wednesday 7th October 2020
