Role Purpose

The Facilities operational team are tasked with providing a safe and healthy built environment for NRW staff, and contractors, enabling them to carry out their duties effectively and for our customers to enjoy their visitor experience.

The job is busy, and the tasks varied. Examples include recording water temperatures, taking utility meter readings, testing fire alarms, organizing repairs and maintenance and ordering stationery.

NRW holds the ISO14001 environmental and ISO45001 Health & Safety management accreditation and many of our tasks directly support these and are subject to audit scrutiny.

We are looking for a responsible, flexible, and pragmatic person, able to priorities and ensure tasks are properly completed and recorded. We also expect the highest standards of excellence towards our customers, both internal and external.
