We are looking for someone to help us maintain the properties we look after. Your role will be to help make sure these homes are maintained to a high standard for the people who live in them.

You will be working on properties across Hackney. Some of these homes will be occupied but you will also be helping us prepare others for their new occupants. To be able to do this work, you need a variety of maintenance skills. We need someone who has a good level of carpentry, plumbing, plastering, glazing, painting and decorating skills. Having a recognised qualification in one of these trades would be desirable.

Some of this work is physically demanding, you may need to climb ladders and lift heavy objects. You will need to apply common sense to your work, be able to manage your time and take pride in your work. In return you will get great opportunities for training, generous annual leave and the opportunity to earn up to £43k on a performance related pay scheme.

You will need experience in repairs and maintenance perhaps for a Housing Association, Local Authority or as a contractor working in tenant’s homes. You need to hold a full, clean, UK driving licence as we will provide you with a work vehicle. You should have NVQ Level 2 in Maintenance Operations or similar City and Guilds qualification or relevant experience. You will also need to have IT skills as you may be using a hand held device to record your work.

Hackney is one of the UK’s highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and work. We have achieved a huge amount: our services, our schools, our public spaces are all amongst the very best. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from the 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.

When applying, it is essential that you include a supporting statement, addressing how your skills, knowledge and experience meet all aspects of the post, as indicated in the job description and person specification.

Interview date: 18 December 2020

We are also working towards our vision, which is to be a place for everyone; where residents and staff can be proud; a place that celebrates diversity and where everyone can feel valued, included and involved. In order to achieve this, we look for people who are: Proud; Ambitious; Pioneering; Open; Proactive; Inclusive.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under represented in our workforce.
