Snape Maltings is one of East Anglia’s leading visitor destinations and our shops, galleries and cafes attract around half a million people each year. Snape Maltings Trading Limited is the commercial subsidiary of Britten Pears Arts, one of the UK’s leading cultural organisations. Our site includes the world famous concert hall as well as holiday and residential accommodation.

The main purpose of this role is to be available to help the retail team, for example, with deliveries, removing and replacing heavy/awkward items of stock and putting signs out in the local area to promote events. Another significant part of the role is to assist with routine maintenance across the entire Britten Pears Arts estate, including our buildings in Aldeburgh. The role also involves keeping the Snape Maltings site clean and tidy throughout the day, including keeping paths and roadways clear, disposing of rubbish and waste, tidying/mowing the grounds, pond clearance and carrying out basic maintenance as required.

This is a physical role and the majority of time is spent outdoors throughout the year.

To be considered you must:

  • Have a full, clean driving licence
  • Be able to work at height and lift/carry heavy/awkward items safely
  • Have previous experience in a maintenance role
  • Have some relevant skills/qualifications eg: painting, plumbing, electrical
  • Have clear communication skills.

This is primarily a Monday to Friday role but will include some weekends to cover holidays and other absences.
