  • Oversee completion of daily reactive work orders and manage all aspects of the delivery of all planned maintenance.
  • Keep track of and schedule the annual compliance register, ensure all records are formatted correctly and stored on the central depository, and provide timely MI reports to show ongoing compliance status.

  • Proficient in the use of Microsoft office packages including Word, Excel, and Outlook as well as other systems such as databases or booking systems (training on in-house systems will be provided).

The ideal candidate is proactive, positive, can-do, enthusiastic and passionate about customer service, professional and credible, and results-driven. You will act as a role model for the values and key behaviours across the organisation, promote peak performance through effective people management, and ensure the team operates with a clear set of processes and procedures with inbuilt measures of quality and control.
