Job Details

Maintenance Technician - Birmingham, West Midlands

Location: Penworks House and Studios 51

Job Type: Permanent

Doing the right thing, even when nobody's watching? It's an iQ thing.

iQ is one of the UK's biggest providers of student accommodation, committed to giving our 30,000 students in 76 sites across 29 UK cities their best year yet.

Our site-based Maintenance teams are bursting with a can do attitude and problem solvers who just love to make people's day.

Here's a bit about the job.

A Maintenance Technician at iQ means making sure the students who stay with us always feel at home, this means carrying out minor repairs on our sites and interacting with the students to make a difference to their day to day lives.

You could be undertaking reactive maintenance such as plumbing, joinery or painting and decorating.  Providing safe and welcoming homes for our residents is the heart of what we do so compliance checks and keeping up to date with our policies and procedures is a key part to this role.  No two days are ever the same, but you'll be part of an iQ family that will always have your back. Did we mention that's an iQ thing too?

What makes a great iQer?

First and foremost, we're looking for a positive, team player who thrives in a get-stuff-done kind of environment. You won't mind rolling your sleeves up, with bags of initiative and great communications skills. You'll have some experience either in maintenance or as a general builder/labourer. You could worked in residential or domestic environments but we're much more interested in your people skills and potential.

In exchange, you'll receive loads of great benefits and upskilling opportunities, and you get to work as part of a fun, supportive team in a business that's definitely going places.

Working at iQ is so much more than a job, it's the chance to carve out your future and build a career in a truly diverse and fun environment. Ready to feel like you've got the best job ever?
