The Estates Department is looking to recruit a highly motivated individual to work as part of a multidisciplinary management team. The department provides management, development, maintenance and operational support for the Trust's buildings and engineering infrastructure.

The role is critical to the Estates Department's maintenance support service and is demanding and varied as it covers a range of engineering services. The role offers a significant opportunity to contribute to the smooth functioning and maintenance of a range of engineering services in the Trust's clinical and non-clinical facilities of a very busy directorate and to be part of a team that is constantly working to improve the quality and safety of the Trust's healthcare facilities.

The successful candidate will be based at Scarborough, but must be willing to work at any of the Trust's sites when required. You will be part of a team working Monday to Friday, but also covering when necessary across other Trust sites, hence you must be flexible regarding the hours of duty and will be expected to undertake appropriate training as part of the job role. On-call responsibility will also be required.

The successful candidate will have a good general knowledge of Electrical / Mechanical services and engineering maintenance backed up by a BTEC, City and Guilds Craft Certificate or NVQ 3 qualification in an mechanical engineering discipline, have successfully completed a recognised Apprenticeship or equivalent certified training and have at least 3 years post-apprenticeship experience.

The role requires the person to have a good knowledge of healthcare infrastructure, mechanical systems and associated equipment such as heating and ventilation systems.

The successful candidate must be able to work co-operatively as part of a management team comprising of electrical, mechanical and building managers and have demonstrable experience of working within a maintenance environment. In addition, the successful candidate should be highly motivated, reliable, resilient, enthusiastic and be able to work under pressure with the minimum of supervision.

The successful candidate will be required to travel independently across the Trust sites.
