Requisition ID Req1762
Department Facilities Management Services
Campus Southeast Campus
Employment Type Classified-Full Time
Best Consideration Date Apply Immediately; This position will close once sufficient qualified applications have been received.
Position Summary

Performs unskilled and semi-skilled maintenance, repair, adjustment and minor construction work in the basic trades to ensure that facilities are properly maintained and meet College standards. Assists more skilled staff in the completion of larger and more complex assignments. Duties may fall into a variety of trades areas, including carpentry, painting, plumbing, electrical, mechanical, energy management, fire and life safety and locks.

Distinguishing Characteristics
This is the first level of a three level family. It is distinguished by the responsibility for less complex, semi-routine, well-defined trades work. Primarily requires on-the-job training, rather than specialized training or experience to perform duties successfully. Within the job family, however, there may be some overlap between the levels of work. Therefore, an incumbent at this level may be occasionally called upon to perform tasks associated with a higher level, such as when working independently or assisting a staff member. In addition, this level of the family has a strong learning component, in that incumbents at this level will frequently take on new tasks under close supervision or may receive guidance from a more senior staff person as a means of skill development.


See the classification description for additional information:
