0.2 FTE Employed Contract (8 hrs per week)

Purpose of the role
You will use your excellent organisational skills to ensure that the building functions smoothly and efficiently, overseeing the regular maintenance and servicing of all aspects of the building including fire safety and alarms, our lift, heating and electrics, as well as cleaning and waste collection.
Your friendly demeanour and excellent communication skills will ensure you develop a good working relationship with tenants, sorting out their queries and needs in relation to building management, and devising ways for tenants to get to know each other, communicate, socialise, and feel connected.
You will enjoy keeping the website up to date and liaising with our graphic designer to ensure that the public face of Utility House is fresh and appealing. And, if a tenant decides to move on, you will lead on marketing and advertising for new tenants.
Your love of efficient systems and processes coupled with amazing attention to detail will enable you to oversee and manage building administration including online bookkeeping, keeping records of suppliers, and ensuring that all essential checks and tasks are carried out when they need to be.
You may be asked to lead on redecoration, improvement or enhancement projects as and when needed. We are currently installing new signage and hope to freshen up the ground floor later in 2022.
As well as managing Utility House, you will also support marketing, communications and admin in relation to Swinfen’s Yard, a mixed-use development of small shops and offices in Stony Stratford owned by one of Utility House’s partners.
Support and training will be provided where needed.
