The primary role of a Property Maintenance Operative is to optimise the condition of our properties to a high standard, ensuring the building is safe at all times. Property Maintenance Operatives need to maintain a high level of quality and provide maximum satisfaction to colleagues and customers.

They will also deliver the first and immediate response to fault-finding; maximising quality, ensuring cost-effectiveness and delivering stores that serve Britain's shoppers a little better every day.

The job will involve working with experienced maintenance professionals at various locations across the region, so a full driving licence is required.

  • Ensuring a safe environment for those who work and shop in Tesco stores and offices
  • Complying with Tesco safety, policies and procedures
  • Identifying hazards and reducing them
  • Carrying out daily maintenance; including fire alarm testing, sprinkler testing, HVAC maintenance, building maintenance, electrical checks and checkout maintenance
  • Building effective relationships with the store leadership teams, communicating clearly on tasks and managing expectations where necessary
  • Ensuring assets are fixed in line with the agreed SLAs
  • Using the systems available to accurately record work completed and describing work that needs to be escalated
  • Working closely with internal service teams and external contractors
  • Meeting the necessary legal and compliance standards
  • Attending store meetings to ensure there is an understanding of maintenance issues and their level of urgency
