Service Unit: Housing Assets

About you
You won’t be a ‘stuck-in-the-mud’, preferring to take ownership of challenges and able to apply analytical thought to provide creative and elegant solutions. Technically competent and a good communicator, you will have the passion, drive and resilience to make significant contributions to our department’s journey of sustained customer service improvement and compliance assurance. You will be generous toward your colleagues and recognise the importance of close co-operation and mutual support.

About the role
Reporting to the Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Lead, you will ensure that the Council is fully compliant with its Statutory and Regulatory obligations and undertake the day to day management of health and safety risks of our mechanical and electrical systems and associated equipment such as passive fire equipment, legionella control, passenger lifts, hoists, stair-lifts and work at height equipment to deliver a fully compliant housing assets service. These will mainly relate to the servicing, testing and repair of such services although there will be alteration, upgrade and installation projects undertaken.

About the team
The Compliance team works closely together within the Housing Assets department, providing a support and ‘gatekeeper’ function for the wider Housing department. We’re a genuinely friendly bunch who are focused on maintaining quality assured compliance in our respective fields to ensure the health and safety of our tenants, colleagues and contractors alike. We constantly seek to improve efficiency, happily share our expert knowledge and promote compliance within our specialist areas including asbestos, electrical, gas, fire, M&E and the environment.
