The Facilities Technician works as part of a larger maintenance team to support the maintenance of a new 30-bed youth housing program as well as the maintenance needs of other PCRS sites in Surrey, BC. As the housing project will not be complete until the summer of 2023, the first 4-6 months will be working at other PCRS locations in the lower mainland. We are looking for someone who has direct experience in construction and/or building and maintenance support. The Facilities Technician provides a variety of site duties to ensure our spaces are safe, welcoming, and comfortable for our staff and participants. Our ideal candidate has a passion for supporting vulnerable young people in our community. It is important to be self-motivated as a significant portion of this role you will be working alone. As you are part of a larger team it is also important that you are a team player who gains satisfaction when working with others to achieve team goals. As they may interact directly with youth in our programs it is important that you use a trauma-informed lens when working with young people. The successful candidate will have the ability to work in an atmosphere of respect and sensitivity.
