Part Time Maintenance Technician – 16 hours per week


Delt is a brilliant contradiction. A dynamic and agile private sector company with a serious conscience, that’s wholly owned by the public sector. It’s somewhere you can do the right things for the right reasons while playing a real part in a growing business.

Our employee proposition is pretty great too, with an overall package that recognises the importance of life in work/life balance and gives you the opportunity to keep learning new things.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced School Maintenance Technician, with an interest in providing a great service to our education customers carrying out minor repairs, ground works and compliance checks.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Working as part of a hardworking and dedicated team you will be responsible for the security and safety of the school buildings and site.
  • Undertaking statutory checks including daily/weekly/monthly recording where required.
  • Acting as a key holder and on occasion attend emergency callouts for the school.
  • Undertaking general repairs and maintenance to the buildings and maintain the site to a high standard.
  • Have a proven ability in planning and prioritising repairs, including liaising with the Operations Manager and Head of Estates.
  • Proactively identifying maintenance issues/defects and act to minimise cost.
  • Working in a flexible manner to meet the needs of Delt and the Trust we support.
  • Facilitating maintenance work by specialist contractors and supervise to ensure H&S compliance.
  • Collaborating with peers to facilitate tasks that require more than one person for health and safety reasons.

We are looking for a hardworking, motivated, and enthusiastic Maintenance Technician to join the team and create a dynamic and inspiring learning environment for the students.

This role will involve working 3pm – 6pm, Monday to Thursday, and 2pm – 6pm on Fridays (16hrs per week).


  • The successful candidate will have previous experience in a similar role, be organised and highly driven to achieve.
  • Candidates should have a proven ability of dealing with multiple tasks to meet time deadlines and working efficiently under pressure.
  • You will work successfully as part of a team, building positive relationships with staff and key stakeholders both within Delt, the Trust and with external providers.
  • As this is hands on maintenance role, DIY skills across multiple trades are a must.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to make a real difference, significantly contributing to the quality education provision that we support our customers to deliver.

In return for your hard work and dedication, we will support you to learn and develop in the role, enabling you to achieve your career aspirations. This role is a unique opportunity to develop site skills, knowledge and additionally contribute to the strategic element of Estates Management.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS disclosure is required for this post.
