We are open to discussing flexible working arrangements.

Are you a highly motivated Mechanical Technician? Do you have excellent problem solving skills and a logical approach? Can you carry out a wide range of reactive repairs and planned preventative maintenance work?

The University of Leeds is one of the top 135 universities in the world. We have a truly global community, with more than 39,000 students from 170 different countries and over 9,000 staff of 100 different nationalities. Established in 1904, we have a strong tradition of academic excellence, reflected in first-class student education, along with world-leading research that has a real impact around the globe.

You will have a recognised mechanical engineering qualification in Mechanical Engineering, Plumbing or Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), with experience of working on-site, preferably within a similar large and complex environment. You will have a flexible approach to ensure the service being delivered is efficient and effective to meet the needs of a wide portfolio of clients. You will join our Maintenance team that forms part of the Facilities Directorate, which is dedicated to providing a wide range of support services connected with the effective management, development and maintenance of the University.

You will report in to a Zonal Supervisor or Manager who is responsible for the day to day delivery of reactive and planned maintenance, where you will be central to delivering the student and staff experience for the University. You will have successfully completed a recognised Mechanical Engineering (Maintenance), Plumbing or HVAC apprenticeship with extensive on-site experience. You will be able to work unsupervised, and on your own initiative, within a large and complex organisation, whilst maintaining a safe working environment for all our staff, students and visitors.
