We’re looking for an enthusiastic, committed and reliable person to manage maintenance and facilities at the Unicorn.

You will ensure compliance with Health & Safety regulations and all licensing requirements.

You will liaise with a wide range of building contractors, as well as addressing maintenance issues yourself, both reactive and preventative. You’ll make sure staff and other building users have the equipment they need to work effectively and comfortably, setting up rooms for hires and internal events as needed.

You will be a Safety Officer for the building, taking a duty management role on a roster with other staff members when we are between shows. You will be an active member of the Health & Safety Committee, contributing ideas on workflow and best practice. The Facilities Manager is a key role in delivering our Sustainability Action Plan, ensuring efficient energy management, and sustainable procurement of the things we need.
