Mechanical Supervisor

You will be permanently working from HMP Wayland

Salary: £36000 to £39000​ per annum (depending on experience and suitability)

Contract: Full time, Permanent

We are Gov Facility Service Ltd, a non-profit company owned entirely by the Ministry of Justice, supplying facilities management services to 50 prisons over the South and East of the UK with an employee count of 1400.

We are seeking a ​Mechanical Supervisor to assume responsibility for ensuring all mechanical and other systems are maintained in alignment with the service specification, industry best practice and regulatory requirements including business led compliance activities.
You will also take accountability for the supervision of all staff within their area of responsibility and other site staff as required, providing direction on the work for the day and that relevant work area is maintained to a high standard

You will be an exceptional Mechanical Supervisor​ at the top of your game, with at least 2 years previous experience in a similar role.

Why join us?

* In addition to the below we have been identified as key workers during the Covid-19 pandemic, due to the critical work that we undertake to maintain the prison estate, and so the stability and security that we offer to employees is even more relevant than ever *

You will be joining a core part of the public sector, and as a government employee can be assured of the job security and stability that the volatile private sector simply can’t provide. You will have a consistent place of work, a supportive team around you, and be valued for your skill and experience, rather than forced to focus on profit margins for shareholders.

If you are successful, you will be offered a competitive salary along with 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) and entry into our pension scheme from day one.

You must be able to demonstrate the following Qualifications and Experience:


● Plumber qualified to C&G 6035 (Plumbing), C&G 6189 (Plumbing and heating) and NVQ level 3 in Plumbing or equivalent.
