A Maintenance Worker is responsible for the general maintenance of your facilities. Maintenance Workers are generally broadly skilled to perform a wide variety of maintenance, repair, and upkeep tasks.
Essential parts of a Maintenance Worker’s job description:
- Maintenance Workers fix and maintain your office buildings, equipment, and vehicles to ensure your business operates smoothly.
- A Maintenance Worker is often on-call to perform ad-hoc tasks and repairs as and when needed.
- Although most Maintenance Workers are broadly skilled, some pursue more specialised careers, such as Maintenance Technicians, Maintenance Engineers, or Building Maintenance Workers.
- A Maintenance Worker used to typically be called a Handyman, but more gender-neutral terms such as Maintenance Worker, Handyperson, Caretaker, and Fixer are now preferred in an effort to improve inclusivity in recruiting.
