You will work closely with customers and our teams to ensure inspections are progressed within agreed timescales. All duties are to be carried out in line with published service standards with priority given to meeting the highest standards of customer care.

The successful candidate will have relevant experience of running and organising efficient and cost-effective property maintenance and refurbishment projects and must hold a valid driver’s licence and have access to a vehicle for work use.

Guidance for applicants:


In accordance with the new immigration rules, employers must hold a licence of sponsorship to recruit all overseas candidates who do not have the right to work in the UK. It is with regret that this role does not meet the current suitability requirements set by the UKVI to enable sponsorship of migrant workers. Therefore, we cannot progress applications from candidates who require sponsorship to work in the UK.


We ask that all applicants read the Job Pack before completing the application form, available on the Careers section of our website. 


The successful candidate will be required to complete a full PVG check to enable working within our registered independent living services.


Blackwood is committed to diversity and inclusion where we are a proud member of the Stonewall Diversity Champions Programme and as an accredited Disability Confident Employer, we will interview all candidates with a disability who meet the minimum requirements for the post.
