We have an exciting opportunity for a Technical Manager to join our highly regarded Maintenance team based in Canning Town. Rydon is a successful construction, development, maintenance, investment and management group operating throughout England, predominantly in London and the southern counties. We are a dynamic, multi talented organisation, working across a wide range of sectors within the built environment. Rydon Maintenance is an expanding division of the Rydon Group and is successfully providing facilities management services to a variety of clients, predominantly within the healthcare and housing association sectors.
In this role you will support the success of our four southern PFI Housing contracts by ensuring that they are compliant to current statutory regulations, contractual obligations, manufacturers' recommendations, industry good practice and current legislation. Each of our contracts vary in size between the values of £5m to £20m per year and are based in Canning Town, Brockley, Myatts Field and Camden. The main focus of these contracts is responsive repairs and maintenance to social housing properties.
As part of the role you will manage the technical maintenance programme for electrical and gas service provision. The successful candidate will monitor work standards across our four contracts, manage the performance of subcontractors and make sure we meet our contractual obligations. You will provide technical support in conjunction with our subcontractors and provide advice to the operational teams on the installations and maintenance of building services. You will produce and monitor agreed Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) programmes to ensure contractual compliance and seek client approval for these programmes. You will also audit the quality of work performed and the associated documentation for correctness and compliance and be the Principle Duty Holder for achieving appropriate accreditations (eg. NICEIC and Gas Safety)
The majority of our work is subcontracted and this is a key role which will require you to work closely with our sub-contractors and manage their performance. You will also take responsibility for managing a small team of two administrators and engineers working to ensure that work delivered is consistent.
This is a superb opportunity for the successful candidate to help us achieve and exceed challenging targets and in return we offer competitive salary, car allowance and benefit package.
The ideal candidate will have previous technical managerial experience gained within a maintenance company providing repairs within social housing. The role would suit a candidate with a Hard FM background and who has knowledge of legislative and regulatory guidance including statutory obligations and experience in producing PPM programmes. You will need to be familiar with domestic heating systems and smoke extract systems although gas/heating qualifications are not required (We have a qualified in house gas team and subcontractors who will provide technical assistance) Above all you will have strong influencing, communication and relationship building skills and should be familiar and competent in managing and maintaining statutory compliance.
As a well established, progressive company we are committed to attracting and retaining individuals by offering an excellent benefits package that includes a wide range of core and voluntary benefits.
