You’ll be a great team player who has skills in maintenance including carpentry, basic plumbing and decorating and be prepared to complete a diverse range of tasks. You will be an organised person and excellent communicator in order to work alongside team members and have regular interaction with our customers.

Ideally, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!
