co-ordinate this through the onsite CAFM system and ensure works are closed out using detailed reporting
outlining works carried out and any further remedial actions required. These actions will be completed using a
company issued personal tablet and mobile phone system. You will have an individual responsibility to deliver on
PPMs and breakdown tasks within agreed SLAs

You will build good and collaborative working relationships with all our teams, including electrical, plumbing,
maintenance technicians, general duties assistants and on site helpdesk team.
