"Managing people."
Maintenance Manager:
Working with machines is easy. Managing people however, is not. You need to know how to deal with each individual that reports to you as they each have their own way of reacting to you. Daily responsibilities include morning meetings with supervisors, walkabouts on site, following up on orders & jobs, chasing outstanding invoices, dealing with disciplinary issues, meeting with contractors, reporting to senior management concerning current & completed projects, focusing mostly on preventative management, completing daily, weekly & monthly checklists, site audits, checking up on workmanship standards, ensuring that staff adhere to the current & latest Health & Safety standards, preparing for annual inspections by the tourism council, assisting with technical advice where needed, assisting with critical breakdowns when needed.
