We are looking for a versatile post holder with recent caretaking / campus services experience or similar practical work experience to join our Estate Management team. You could be based at either site or required to work at any other University building across Chichester or Bognor Regis.

This position requires working on a three-week shift pattern rota including weekends. The early shift starts at 6am and late shift finishing at 11pm.

You must be flexible, proactive, well organised and motivated with a customer focused, helpful and flexible approach to work. Working with a variety of University Departments, including Cleaning Services and Conference and Accommodation, it is important you can work as part of a team. This role is full time and works on a shift rota basis. Some flexibility will be required to cover operational requirements including staff sickness or increased peaks of activity.

This role will involve working outside in all weathers across a large site, daily lifting and moving a range of equipment, checking buildings and working closely with our external security provider.
