We are a small, but very busy, Property Maintenance company, based in Edinburgh with a great customer base. We are looking for a new member to join our small but very friendly team in the role of handyman or woman; a Jack/Jill of all trades. You don’t have to have a trade background - though this is desirable - just have a passion for doing the job right and a good level of joinery, plumbing and electrics. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service, and thus you must have great interpersonal skills, and be friendly, polite, and approachable.

On a daily basis you will be dealing with customers first hand with a variety of jobs needing done in their homes and businesses. This can range from re-sealing bathroom silicon to re-tiling the bathroom, fitting a toilet or changing taps, or simply hanging some pictures and curtain poles. We also help with commercial properties which can be anything from changing the light bulbs or fittings to re hanging a door or replacing a lock, every job will be different and something new.

The majority of work will be carried out on your own, but with a support team on the other end of the phone if required. You will need to be able to problem solve where required, and to take responsibility for a job from start to finish. This includes: being courteous and polite to the customer, completing the work in a timely fashion and to a high standard, leaving the premises spotlessly clean and tidy, and ensuring the customer is happy with the completed work.

You will need to have a full UK driving licence, and the ability to work alone but also a team player. The position is 38.75 hrs per week, £18k pa (increasing after probationary period) plus good holiday allowance and Christmas bonus.

You will receive a company van, uniform, and mobile phone. Whilst your own set of tools would be preferable, we can provide anything you require. You will be part of an amazing team that will provide you with not only a great career and support, but great banter and an enjoyable place to work.

Please send us your CV and a brief description of relevant experience/skills and why you would be an ideal addition to the team.
