The University of Bath Accommodation department houses over 4,000 students throughout the academic year and during the summer month’s external companies use our accommodation services for conferences, summer camps and away days. 

We have two vacancies for the role of Accommodation Operations Caretaker in our student accommodation. As an Accommodation Operations Caretaker you will ensure that the properties and grounds are inviting, well maintained and safe. You will spend a lot of your day out and about around the accommodation taking a proactive approach to ensure the accommodation is maintained to a high standard, either by carrying out reactive and planned maintenance tasks in occupied bedrooms and communal areas, or liaising with the Deputy Accommodation Operations Team Leader to instruct the Maintenance Teams to attend. You will act as the eyes and ears for the Deputy Accommodation Operations Team Leader for issues throughout the property and ensure they are reported promptly and professionally. You will also be responsible for ensuring the accommodation is ready for use by arriving students or commercial guests, and that cleaning and waste removal SLAs are achieved. 

Experience in a maintenance role is desirable, but not essential as full training will be provided. You must be personable, self-motivated and able to demonstrate a flexible and positive ‘can do’ attitude. 

Full details of this role are included in the job description.

The role requires you to work 5 days out of 7, therefore weekend working is expected. 

Interested? Here's just some of the benefits of working with us:

• A competitive rate of pay
• A generous pension scheme
• Up to 25 days annual leave per year, 8 bank holidays and 5 extra discretionary days
• A 36.5 hour week and no split shifts
• We close over the Christmas break but you’re still paid for this time off
• Regular awards for shining stars, from Love2Shop vouchers to annual awards!
• A commitment to the wellbeing of our teams, with mindfulness sessions, fitness boot camps and free health checks
• Great staff social events
• A staff suggestion scheme, with the chance to share your ideas and earn vouchers
• The chance to develop, with many training courses and job shadowing opportunities
• Up to 20 hours a year personal development time for fitness classes, training, volunteering and charity work
• Tax and national insurance savings through salary exchange schemes on nursery care and childcare vouchers
