REF: 16732
Posted: 15 March 2022
Closes: 10 April 2022

Uppingham School, founded in 1584, is a leading co-educational independent boarding school based in the heart of Rutland. The estate covers 125 non-contiguous acres, almost one mile apart at its extremities and interspersed by town housing and retail properties. It includes 59 acres of playing fields, 14 acres of gardens, and a built estate of 80 buildings, whose combined external footprint is 775,000 sq ft, and of which 23 are listed (Grades I – II). Buildings include teaching blocks, assembly buildings, boarding houses, staff housing, administrative and technical accommodation, and sports facilities. With such an impressive estate they are seeking a proactive and driven Maintenance and Minor Works Manager to join the Estates team

Working closely with the Estates Director, you will have the opportunity to work closely to define the maintenance strategy. You will lead our in-house & contracted teams, across all aspects of planned and reactive maintenance, including minor works and renewals. A proven track record in the management of a similar 'Technical Client' function, across a comparably complex estate, is therefore essential. You will have a strong understanding of M&E plant with an in-depth knowledge of statutory compliance

Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are prerequisite traits, as is the ability to work in a collaborative and customer focused manner, across a large, complex and multi-faceted organisation. You will possess excellent technical skills with a recognised professional engineering/building services qualification and corporate membership of a relevant body. This role will suit a professional with experience across diverse estates, who is adept in delivering ‘best in class’ services in similar consumer led environments.
