The University of Plymouth, a leading university in the South West, is seeking to recruit a Building Services Engineer (Projects: Mechanical & Electrical) to work as part of our Estates team. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a progressive and cutting-edge university in a beautiful location, where you can really make a difference.
Estates and Facilities have exciting and ambitious plans for the development of the University estate.

We are looking for an experienced Building Services Engineer (Projects: Mechanical & Electrical) to join the team and be an integral part of managing and maintaining our evolving estate.
The University is a multi-site operation with a sizeable proportion of its activities taking place on or close to the main campus in Plymouth, which is where this role is based.

A major focus of the role is creating forward works plans based on surveys and inspections of the estate, leading in the delivery of capital minor works packages (works value up to £1million), as well as the provision of operational maintenance activities.
As an integral part of the Estates Minor Works and Surveying Team you will ensure that capital project and revenue maintenance works are compliant with appropriate legislation and regulations. You will work in partnership with stakeholders and other colleagues to deliver effective customer focused services and will possess excellent communication and organisational skills.
You will have detailed knowledge of Compliance activity and will ideally hold, or be willing to gain, a formal H&S qualification (NEBOSH, IOSH or other equivalent H&S qualification).
