Handyperson – Based at Preston

My career at Myerscough College – Inspiring Excellence

The Commercial Services area at Myerscough College has undergone a positive restructure which has resulted in growth. A number of vacancies are available and we would love you to be part of this new and exciting team at a time where we are looking at fresh ideas, creativity, and a desire to improve and build on an already brilliant team.

About the role

Our student residential village and the Myerscough residential accommodation is an incredibly important part of the campus here at Preston. We are always striving to make sure it is as safe and well maintained as we possibly can, and we would love for you to be part of the team that makes that happen.

You might be generally skilled in various aspects of DIY or you may have a particular strength in one area (like joinery, decorating, etc.) – either way we would love to hear from you. This is a busy environment but you would be part of a team of 3 that all work together, with the workload evenly spread out. There would be some early evenings and weekends as part of your rota so that we can ensure we react quickly to any maintenance issues that arise, and provide the best possible customer service to our students and commercial clients. Accommodating our students is a major part of what we do, but we also offer conferences and events on a residential basis, so we operate all year round (except our Christmas and New Year close down period!).

Myerscough offers a generous holiday entitlement and excellent pension as well as many other benefits. Most importantly, we are a welcoming team with fantastic enthusiasm for continuously improving.

Safeguarding our students is of paramount importance. Our recruitment process has been designed to keep students safe and to ensure that we appoint safe and suitable people.

All successful applicants will be required to undertake pre-employment background and safeguarding checks.

The successful applicant will be responsible for complying with all safeguarding policies and practices, and for ensuring student safety and wellbeing is at the forefront of everything they do.

This post is not exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.

We are an equal opportunity employer; we want all our candidates to have a fair and equal opportunity to secure employment with us. We encourage applications from all underrepresented groups: BAME applicants, disabled applicants, and LGBT+ applicants.

If you require any adjustments to the recruitment process, due to a disability, then please speak with a member of the People team.

As a disability confident employer, we commit to guaranteeing an interview for any disabled applicant who meets all of the essential criteria.
