Estates and Facilities

You will have the chance to work with healthcare colleagues to make a positive difference to people’s lives, while having the opportunity to develop your skills and experience.

Our Estates and Facilities department works with clinical and operational teams across St Andrew’s to deliver exceptional sevices to our patients and staff, and is a vital component in our delivery of excellent patient care.

At times the work may be challenging, but you will be supported by colleagues and managers who care about your wellbeing and professional development.

Roles in Estates and Facilities

The Estates and Facilities team works within both clinical and non-clinical areas and is made up of a number of key roles, each providing an environment that enhances the wellbeing of our patient group.

At St Andrew’s the Estates and Facilities team has a wide remit, from design and build of new buildings to refurbishment and maintenance of existing stock, and all the hard and soft services attributed to the upkeep of the Charity's buildings.

We employ catering  staff who are responsible for our freshly cooked patient and staff meals, cafés and hospitality functions. Housekeeping staff ensure the cleanliness of units and office accommodation. There are laundry staff, responsible for both patient and unit laundry, and porters who move patient property and office furniture around the buildings. Security and reception staff ensure that patients and staff remain safe while on St Andrew's premises. Our department also includes project managers, who are responsible for managing the delivery of construction-related projects to enhance both clinical and non-clinical areas, and a maintenance team responsible for ongoing operational mechanical and electrical work, grounds works and maintenance of the fabric of the Charity's estate, as well as running our helpdesk and making sure we respond to the needs of people throughout the organisation.

We encourage career progression and will help you to achieve your goals through training, mentoring and management support.

Your first year with us

We expect you to have a ‘can-do’ attitude and a flexible approach, to become a real team player and build relationships with colleagues and St Andrew's teams in order to reach our collective goals.

We will provide you with support and training, including access to a wide range of both internal and external courses, which will help to ensure success in your role.

It will be a steep learning curve, but you will receive support from your colleagues and our professional team.
