  • management of a wide range of contractors and suppliers to ensure VCS is receiving the best value and service possible
  • overseeing the facilities and maintenance budgets to ensure responsible stewardship of school funds
  • identifying, prioritizing, and fixing building deficiencies, either personally or calling on the necessary trade(s) to fix the issue in a timely and safe manner and
  • ensuring the school facilities are operating in compliance with all safety and regulatory requirements

Ideally, you will have a minimum of 3 years experience in commercial office or school buildings in the areas of building maintenance, engineering, facilities, and operations.  A red seal trade or 5th Class Power Engineers certificate is highly desirable or alternatively, you may have a Power Engineering education and have completed your BCSA exams.  A Class 5 driver’s license is required.

You are also someone who is highly organized with a high level of mechanical and trades aptitude that will allow you to identify, prioritize and rectify building issues and problems as they arise.  Flexibility, adaptability, and strong interpersonal skills will be key.
