Maintenance Supervisor

We are looking for a new Maintenance Supervisor, with solid experience, to join our Facilities team.

The Council owns and maintains more than 300 facilities across our growing city including Libraries, Waikato Museum, office buildings and water treatment plants. Maintaining these assets is overseen by our committed and customer-focused Maintenance Supervisors who have a strong sense of ownership towards managing these public buildings and facilities.

Reporting to the Facilities Unit Manager, the Maintenance Supervisor ensures the Council’s facilities are looked after to the standard our community expects. Main parts of the job include making sure these facilities are regularly inspected, sourcing and managing external contractors, and managing suppliers for repairs or maintenance. 

Other key responsibilities include:

  • management of planned maintenance work including cleaning, security, plumbing, electrical and other building systems
  • contractor management, and ensuring all work is carried out in a safe manner and is delivered on time and within budget
  • providing regular work progress reports to the relevant units of the Council
  • developing maintenance schedules in advance to minimise operational disruptions
  • provide after-hours emergency maintenance support on a rostered basis.

Ideally you will come from a trade/maintenance background and be trade qualified, preferably with experience working in the building or mechanical industry. You’ll also have experience managing external contact/service providers, can use a computer with ease, and have experience using asset and maintenance management systems. 

We are looking for someone who can manage multiple tasks and projects at any one time, and who takes a proactive and organised approach to their work.  You will have initiative and display confidence when interacting with people. As this role manages off-site contractors, working knowledge of the Health and Safety at Work Act along with excellent communication and strong leadership skills are a must. 

The recruiting range for this role starts at $65,000 per annum and could be negotiated for the right candidate. 

This is your chance to be part of an organisation that is committed to building a more vibrant, attractive and prosperous city. If this role sounds like it’s for you, we would love to hear from you. Make it happen and apply online today!

All candidates will be notified of the outcome on their application via email. Short-listed candidates may be required to complete an interview process, reference checks, pre-employment medical, drug and alcohol assessments, credit check and a Ministry of Justice or Police vetting check.
