Facility employee

For our facilities services team we are looking for a new colleague.

The function

As a facilities employee, you start each morning with your colleagues. Besides a social talk, you discuss the daily and weekly schedule. But no day follows the plan, because in facilities services you are always prepared for unplanned things. You might be busy getting rooms ready for a symposium, when a malfunction occurs in one of the technical systems. But whatever the day brings, it will be good if, at the end of the day, you have managed to support the organization and keep the systems running.

We are looking for

You are a facility employee with a few years of work experience, with a hands-on attitude and living in the region. In this position, you will supervise 2 colleagues at KWR. Together with them you will take care of many facility matters, both planned and unplanned. So some of this work you do together, but there are also tasks that you perform alone. You will also participate in on-call shifts. But the most important thing is that you are loyal, flexible and honest.

Your (main) duties:

  • Management of contracts and physical audiovisual assets;
  • Management of contracts (company)waste policy including implementation;
  • Manager of fire alarm, gas extinguisher, sprinkler and burglar systems;
  • Point of contact for internal customer regarding shipping;
  • Responsible for the preparation of meeting rooms;
  • Supervision of external mechanics;
  • Picking up internal reports/faults.

Your profile:

  • MBO-3/4 working and thinking level;
  • At least 3 years of work experience;
  • You have affinity with technical systems;
  • You are flexible and proactive in picking up tasks;
  • You have a good command of the Dutch and English language, both verbally and in writing;
  • You are physically fit because you have to lift things when preparing rooms;
  • You have a driving license for a car;
  • Preferably you have completed a technical education;
  • Willingness to attend training courses;

If you do not meet the complete profile but are enthusiastic about this position, then we also look forward to receiving your motivation and resume.

Our offer for you

We consider it important to work on a long-term working relationship, personal growth and career development. We offer various opportunities for this, such as a good introduction period in the organization and various courses and trainings. A good work-life balance is paramount for us. If you have a on-call service (available 24/7 for certain weeks), you will also receive an extra payment for this.

KWR has excellent primary and secondary terms of employment (salary scale G: € 2,887 – € 3,742), including a Flexible Working Conditions Budget of 22.11%, and is affiliated with the collective labour agreement for water companies (WWb).

In addition, you can perform your hands-on work in a sustainably built building. The building is designed for collaboration between colleagues, teams and business contacts. With this position and our profile, KWR offers an exceptional working environment.

The team

The facility services team is a broad-based team. Together with your five colleagues, you take care of all kinds of facility services. Examples include management of the fire alarm system, preparing rooms for presentations and technical management of the buildings and grounds. These services are mostly internal, but because many external parties also perform jobs, you also coordinate a lot with external service providers.
