Description

The Gate is a local charity set up to prevent or relieve poverty and improve the conditions of life of people who are marginalized, facing exclusion, vulnerable or homeless in the Clackmannanshire area.

We are currently recruiting for volunteers to get involved with carrying out basic maintenance tasks in The Gate building.

As a handyperson you will get involved in carrying out tasks such as:

  • Painting and basic decorating
  • Putting up fittings and fixtures
  • General maintenance
  • Garden/grounds maintenance and improvements
  • Changing light bulbs (high ceilings)
  • General DIY

For this role, we are looking for people with a background in building, electrics, joinery etc as we need people who are skilled to carry out this role. In addition, you should be someone who has good communication skills, an ability to work independently, be reliable, trustworthy, and dedicated. The hours are flexible as they are based on our needs; however it would be useful if you could spare a couple of hours a week for general maintenance.
