We have an opportunity for a new colleague to join our Maintenance team to provide a responsive and high-quality repairs and maintenance service for 1625ip properties, residents, and teams.
We are particularly keen to increase applications from Black/Black British, Muslim, and female candidates as they are currently under-represented in our maintenance team. We would also like applications from people with relevant lived experience.
Please find full details of how to apply via our website in the advert below. The deadline for application submissions is 23:59, Thursday 09 June 2022. If you need an adjustment to be made to any part of the recruitment process, please let us know as soon as possible.
We are a leading youth homelessness charity based in the Southwest, working with over 1,500 young people. We have strong local partnerships and adhere to the best practice in the sector. We build trusting relationships between our young people and our colleagues, and this is at the core of our work.
What we are looking for:
If you have transferrable skills and you are interested in this role, but you are worried about the application process, please get in touch with us. We encourage you to have an informal chat with the recruiting manager to discuss how your personal or professional experience and skills could be transferred to this role. Details of how you can do that are further down in this advert.
What you will be doing:
You will be in the Maintenance team and your line manager will be our Maintenance Team Leader.
What we are offering:
Covering Letter / Supporting Statement Guidance
Please note that the online application form cannot be saved until it is fully complete. We recommend that you prepare your Covering Letter before you start the online application.
Your Covering Letter is essentially your Supporting Statement and will form the most important basis on which your skills, experience and behavioural competencies will be tested against the job criteria. Without it, your application cannot progress to the shortlisting stage.
You should refer to the Person Specification document within the Job Pack and cover only the elements that are tested at this stage of the recruitment process. Elements that only have the word ‘interview’ next to them will be tested at the next stage of the process and do not need to be covered in your letter.
Please try to keep the word limit to 250 words per criterion.
ALTHOUGH THE APPLICATION FORM GIVES YOU THE OPTION TO UPLOAD A CV, PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT A CV AS THIS IS NOT NECESSARY AND WILL NOT BE USED IN THIS PROCESS.

We safeguard and promote the safety and welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Any job offer will depend on a satisfactory DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Barred List Disclosure Check.
