The University of Lincoln prides itself on the quality of its teaching, which is reflected in our Gold award in the national Teaching Excellence Framework. Students are at the heart of everything we do at Lincoln, from our award-winning teaching to our great industry links and outstanding student experience.
The student residential experience was recognised in 2015 as a critical element of student life at the University of Lincoln and the University embarked on a transformational change programme, moving from 1000 directly controlled Purpose Built Student Accommodation bed spaces to circa 2700 currently, with construction ongoing to increase beds to 4400+ by 2022. Due to this growth we are now recruiting to a number of crucial operational roles.
We are looking to appoint a team of Accommodation Technicians. Reporting to an Accommodation Team Leader, the post-holders will assist with the provision of fire watch and minor maintenance works: including general maintenance, decorating, compliance, grounds maintenance and similar. Additionally the role holders will assist the Accommodation Officer in preparing premises for occupation as required. The role will involve fire marshal duties, manual handling and working at heights. The role will at times require moving between accommodation sites in a team van, for which a full driving licence is essential. This post will require flexible hours to accommodate regular over-night and weekend working, typically but not exclusively 5 days from 7.
You will have worked in a range of environments with; comparative technical experience, such as property / facility maintenance, literacy and numeracy skills gained from general education or equivalent experience necessary to undertake the full range of maintenance duties, effective administration skills to be competent in a range of IT software (eg Microsoft word, excel and outlook or equivalent) and the ability to be able to follow procedures with minimal supervision.
You must demonstrate a genuine commitment towards continual service improvement, ideally focussed around the customer experience to enhance the ‘student experience’. You will be an effective team member, with an enthusiastic and flexible approach and have the ability to work under pressure to tight timescales.
