Care & Repair (North East Wales) Ltd are seeking a full time Technical Officer to join a small but expanding team of individuals dedicated to helping older and disabled people throughout Flintshire and Wrexham. Our Agency is part of a network of organisations covering all counties in Wales which are coordinated by our overarching body, Care & Repair Cymru. We work closely with several partners including Flintshire County Council, Wrexham County Borough Council and Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board. We are a people centred organisation offering excellent terms and conditions and benefits to our staff.

The role will involve working independently to assess, manage and deliver repair and adaptation projects. The scale of repair projects varies from minor works to full property refurbishments. The scale of adaptation works varies from small works under the Rapid Response Adaptation Programme (RRAP) to major conversion works under the Disabled facilities Grant (DFG). The appointed person will report to the Senior Technical Officer. The role will involve travelling throughout the counties of Flintshire and Wrexham and occasional travel further afield to attend conferences and events.

The successful individual will need to demonstrate a good deal of experience in dealing with repair and/or adaptation works and ideally will have a qualification in a building related discipline.

An ability to think and work independently, a high level of IT literacy and effective communication skills are essential. We are a small team of highly committed individuals who are prepared to be flexible and work together to achieve the best outcomes for our clients and partners.
