Are you someone…

If yes, then this is your opportunity to join Blackwood, one of Scotland’s leading care and housing providers as an Assets Officer based in our West regional office in Glasgow. Our vision is to help people live their lives to the full and we are passionate about how we use innovation and technology to make a difference.

Reporting to the Planned Maintenance Delivery Leader, our Assets Officers have a key role to play in delivering Blackwood’s planned and cyclical maintenance programmes and adaptations services.

Working closely between our customers and Asset and Regional teams, you will undertake inspections which cover all aspects of the adaptation process and progress them within agreed timescales. It is expected you will be able to provide support and direct cover for our Estate/Asset Management teams during periods of absence and resume responsibility for all repairs within properties and developments during such times.

We need someone who can not only maintain strong relationships with our existing partners and external bodies that we work with but also work to develop Blackwood’s network to positively enhance our brand.
It is crucial that our Asset Officers ensure full compliance with legal and regulatory obligations in the work that they undertake, and you will be able to carry this through by working well during periods of pressure and effectively managing workloads.

The successful candidate will have relevant experience of running and organising efficient and cost-effective construction or repairs projects by being financially astute and closely monitoring budgets. We look for the post-holder to adopt approaches to projects that are analytical, evidence-based, values and customer-driven as well as finding ways to apply the best practical solution.

You will possess excellent knowledge of property, construction and building processes and demonstrate best practice in the work you undertake.  All duties are to be carried out in line with published service standards with priority given to ensuring both value and quality are delivered to customers, a key deliverable of our Business Plan.

As our Assets Officer role qualifies for Blackwood’s Essential Car User Allowance a driving licence and access to a vehicle are essential criteria for the role.
