Facility Services Coordinator, State of WA, posted 8/21/18

We have a great job opportunity for recent college graduates of your program, the link to the application can be found here. The application does not go into very much detail about the actual work of the position, so I have listed below some of the major duties that this person would be doing.

This position is expected to use construction experience to inspect region facilities to determine maintenance/repair needs and then make recommendations to the Business Operations Manager who develops the region facilities plan. Prepares scope of work for contractors, evaluate bids, and monitor contract compliance. This position will over see 59 buildings at 11 work centers throughout the southeast portion of Washington, from Chelan County to Asotin County. They will serve as the Point of Contact for security systems and vendors. Makes recommendations to the Region Management team on short and long-term facilities planning, and will maintain and negotiate leases in coordination with the Region Management Team and Engineering/Facilities. This person needs to know (or learn) requirements for compliance with WA L&I and WISHA/OSHA. Will complete spot checks to ensure period inspections are completed for facilities, fire extinguishers, AED’s, and exit lights. This person will coordinate with the fire department and with emergency management staff in the region when drills/inspections are completed. They will also work with the Equipment Technician 3 to prioritize and schedule repair workload of the Region’s fleet. The person in this position will also manage the warehouse, conducting analyses of warehouse and fire cache levels to assure they are appropriate. Lastly, it will also supervise the Equipment Technician 3 and the Maintenance Mechanic 3.

This position is full time and we offer great health benefits and retirement plans. Most of your students go into the private sector, but they won’t find the work-life balance that this agency offers its employees. This role will not only give one of your graduates experience, but a platform to build their career. The Washington State DNR prides itself on the growth opportunities it provides its employees and opportunities to cross train in other fields in our agency that have applicable skills to any other state agency as well as the private sector.

Please share with your faculty, or if you know of a UW alumni that would be a good fit for this position.

Thank you,
