Department: Facilities Management

Role Category: Hub-based

Hours per week: 18 hours per week

Contract Duration: Permanent

Hours of work: 18 hours per week, 9 hours per day working Saturday & Sunday between the hours of 7am and 10pm.

Role Category - the way you'll work:

This role has been categorised as a hub-based role.  This means that you’ll be based at a Thirteen site, primarily because you’re dealing with customers in-person or because you need access to key equipment.  You probably won’t travel around the area for work very much and it’s unlikely that you’ll be expected or able to work from home.

The Role:

Are you passionate about delivering excellent customer service? 

If so, we have a permanent vacancy for a Building Support Operative within our Building Support Services Team. As a BSO you will support the operational delivery of a 24/7 high performing and customer-driven service to our customers within Thirteen’s multi-occupancy buildings (whether residential or commercial) whilst also protecting our assets and neighbourhoods.

You will work closely with the Control Room Co-ordinators to carry out a range of duties including building safety patrols, fire safety checks including attendance at fire alarm activations and responding to emergency requests covering various locations.  It is imperative that all duties are undertaken in a timely professional manner and recorded to meet our legislative and service standards.

The Person:

We are looking for someone who can listen carefully, take direction and provide resolutions to operational issues; equally we want someone who will share our ambition to think and work differently.

Your communication skills will need to be particularly effective as you will be interacting with a wide range of internal colleagues, our customers as well as third party stakeholders.  You also need to be flexible and adaptable due to the reactive nature of the service. 

The future is exciting, and we only want the best to be part of it.

At Thirteen we're about homes and so much more.....

At Thirteen, we’re more than just a landlord. We believe everyone is an individual. That’s why we don’t just provide properties; we offer a home to suit each person’s needs.

And we’re not just about somewhere to live; our range of extra services means we can give people a helping hand specifically tailored to them if they need it.

Our strength, capacity and ambition to deliver what our customers need means we can change things for the better.

We’re the largest housing association in the North East and among the biggest 25 nationally.  Today we own and manage some 34,000 properties in the North East region, 30,000 of them in the Tees Valley. Thirteen is still an organisation that’s local at its heart - and although our work is largely in the Tees Valley, we welcome applications from further afield because our ways of working mean we can often be flexible about where our colleagues are based.

Our skilled colleagues and board directors work tirelessly to support 70,000 tenants and customers, bringing a breadth of experience and a can-do attitude to ensure a high-quality customer experience.  We welcome applications form people of all backgrounds to join our committed team.

So come and be part of making a difference. Great days for everyone are made at Thirteen.

Are you up for the challenge of bringing our vision to life and having great days at work?
