Hire a Handyman

 

When you’re running a full-time business, smooth day-to-day operations are essential for optimal efficiency. For business owners and office managers, they want to focus on running the business, driving sales, and achieving targets. Things like a leaking sink, a broken chair, or a flickering light bulb should be the least of their worries. In this case, hiring a reliable handyman is a wise choice. A handyman is an individual who provides a wide range of maintenance tasks like minor plumbing and electrical repairs, painting, and cleaning. 

 

A handyman works in companies as part of a maintenance team and other businesses. Also, a handyman can opt to be self-employed and work on an on-call basis for homeowners. Handymen may work on a part-time or full-time arrangement in daytime hours. However, they may be called after office hours in case of an emergency.

 

Hiring a handyman can support a business in many ways. Before starting the recruitment process, hiring managers conduct an intake with the company to gain clarity on the job particulars. How many years of experience are preferred? What is the work schedule expected of a handyman? Afterward, creating a job description that is accurate and concise will help candidates know more about the job vacancy and encourage them to apply. Be creative! Aside from requirements and responsibilities, why not include details about company benefits, values, culture, and workplace? 

 

Finally, post the job announcement on as many relevant sites as you can. There are a lot of places on the web: hiring websites, social media, and even online groups. The more visible the job description, the more candidate leads. 

 

Responsibilities of a Handyman

 

To identify issues and prevent any damage, a handyman routinely inspects common areas, bathrooms, kitchens, appliances, and other facilities within their scope of work or area. Depending on the need, they perform minor repairs for electrical and plumbing systems, fix broken appliances and furniture, and do small paint jobs. Also, they clean parking lots, do yard work and respond to other maintenance requests as necessary. If a major repair is required on any part of the facility, the handyman reports it to the supervisor immediately. Lastly, a handyman is responsible for following safety standards at all times. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Handyman

 

To apply as a handyman, interested candidates must have a high school diploma or GED. It is an advantage to have previous work experience as a handyman. A good grasp of plumbing, electrical systems, and minor repairs are necessary. Proficiency in using common hand tools and other power tools is helpful. 

 

The ideal candidate for handyman is a problem solver, organized, and can manage time well. Because handymen frequently engage with clients and other team members, they must have excellent listening, interpersonal, and communication skills. Similarly, good attention to detail and the ability to follow verbal and written instructions are beneficial. Lastly, candidates must be willing to work on their feet for extended periods, in tight spaces, and lift or carry heavy objects when required.
