Job Ref: HSSMM02

Providing free specialist palliative care through a range of services to the people of Mid Staffordshire since 1989, Katharine House Hospice exists to offer the best care so that people in our community, affected by progressive illnesses, can live life to the full. Primarily a voluntary organisation, we are supported by donations from the local community and the services of almost 600 volunteers and 230 staff.

Katharine House Hospice is looking for a highly capable, organised and motivated manager to lead our very busy maintenance team, managing all aspects of planned and reactive maintenance for the Hospice, Business Centre and our retail sites. The role will encompass a significant amount of hands-on work and therefore the successful applicant will hold a recognised qualification in a key construction trade e.g. electrical, plumbing, carpentry and will have a good understanding of other areas.

The post-holder will also be responsible for managing tenders, external contractors and volunteers, and will carry out a range of central organisational functions, whilst supporting the Chief Executive in the management of our utility contracts, insurances, disaster plan and other such functions.

A strong understanding of Health and Safety systems and procedures would be advantageous; excellent people skills and management experience is essential. The post holder will be required to travel around mid and north Staffordshire and will therefore need regular access to an adequately insured vehicle. Whilst this may be infrequent the team will be required to provide out of hours emergency call out/support, as per an agreed rota.

This post requires unsupervised working with vulnerable adults, an enhanced DBS clearance is therefore a requirement.

For an informal discussion regarding this position, please call 01785 218257 and we will arrange for someone to contact you.
