Are you a master of data with a passion for analysis, building controls technology, and innovation?

This role puts YOU at the heart of a BMS hub with a GBP1.4 million energy-saving potential.

Working for an award-winning modern university, you'll hone your career on the coattails of GBP200,000 worth of BMS investment in the past 18 months - and as part of the UK's first and only Total Room Automation solution.

You'll be compiling and reporting data, managing building management system software, and keeping a cool head in a busy maintenance engineering service-focused office environment.

But that's not all. You'll also be...

  • Implementing cutting-edge energy-efficiency technology and innovation
  • Transforming reactive maintenance into proactive anticipation and smart system solutions
  • Driving a flagship smart city - a test case for the future in both the UK and Europe
  • Giving thousands and thousands of university students an improved living experience

But alongside a close team featuring a BMS Apprentice Engineer and a Senior BMS Technician, you'll gain all the skills you need in a collaborative working environment built on internal training and career progression.

The Benefits...

  • Working for the country's top modern university - Guardian University Guide 2019
  • Stability, with excellent potential for career progression
  • A not-for-profit charity - funding goes directly into innovation and training
  • Establishing a career in a dynamic and evolving line of work and technology
  • A central city location, with shops, bars, cafes, public transport and accommodation all close by
  • 28 days' annual leave, with bank holidays on top
  • Public sector contributory pension
  • Annual salary increase based on training and performance
  • Financial support towards vocational and academic qualifications

We're Looking For...

  • Experience compiling reports and presenting data; for example, plot graphs and pivot tables in Microsoft Excel
  • Building management system (BMS) and/or Computer-aided Facilities Management (CAFM) software knowledge
  • Exposure to a busy, customer service focused engineering or office environment
  • A strong character - the ability to prioritise work, take ownership, and say "no" when required
  • NVQ and/or A-level qualifications - or, even better, an HNC/HND in mechanical engineering
