Job description

We are Chessington World of Adventures Resort and we are part of the magical Merlin Entertainments!
We are currently recruiting for a Resort Facilities Technician.  In this role you will maintain the facilities and equipment right across the Resort both back and front of house. You’ll bring your skills, knowledge and experience to share with the team. Health & Safety is our number 1 priority as we deliver high standards of safety and efficiency, particularly when responding to breakdown calls and undertaking corrective works. You will work safely to risk assessments and be proactive in minimising downtime of facilities and equipment. Working to budgets, you will be commercially aware when considering the most cost effective option for materials and spares. It’s not all about being reactive though, as you’ll help plan and execute our rigorous maintenance programme, this is not your average maintenance job, its a lot more fun!
We are looking for the following skills and experience;
• You will have completed a trade-based apprenticeship, or be qualified to HNC/BTEC level or equivalent, in a building trades/services discipline.
• A multi-trades background is preferred and we would expect you to have adequate working knowledge of associated regulations and legislation.
• Knowledge of Water bodies/Bacterial testing and control is highly desirable
• You will be a people’s person, friendly and a real team player, happy to engage with the public and deliver an excellent level of customer service.
• Good at developing sound working relationships and a great communicator; you will be well presented and will take pride in your work.
This role is full time, permanent.  You will work a shift pattern averaged over a 40 hour week, and this will include weekends and bank holidays. Start time and finish time will vary depending on your shift; however as an indication the Department is required to provide cover from 6am till 10pm at this time.
Alongside a competitive annual salary between £22,700-£24,700 and 28 days holiday (including bank holidays) you can look forward to enjoying a great benefits package including a Group Personal Pension Plan, Merlin Magic pass, Employee Assistance Programme, Childcare Vouchers, Life Assurance, 25% discount in our retail shops and restaurants, 40% discount online off of LEGO, and much more!
