The County of Yolo is recruiting to fill one regular, full-time position in the class of Supervising Building Craftsmechanic within the General Services department. The candidate selected for this position will be responsible for providing day to day supervision and oversight for Facilities Maintenance staff, assigning work orders and overseeing emergency requests. This person will work directly with the Facilities Manager as well as other department contacts throughout the organization. Duties include assisting with budget development requests, Request for Proposals, contracts, purchase orders, deferred maintenance plans and accurate and specific project timelines. The ideal candidate for this position will be a positive leader and must have the ability to be a creative problem solver and be solution focused. Strong interpersonal and communication skills, as well as the ability to handle and manage multiple priorities while maintaining a positive, collaborative environment are also crucial characteristics for success in this position. Knowledge of ADA-related facility requirements and various computer systems are desired.

Under direction, the incumbent supervises, assigns, reviews, and participates in the work of staff responsible for building maintenance and facilities work; ensures work quality and adherence to established policies, standards and procedures; and performs the more technical and complex tasks relative to the assigned area of responsibility.

This class is the supervisory class in the Building Craftsmechanic series. Incumbents in this class are expected to work under minimal management supervision and instruction, and to exercise considerable independent judgment and initiative while supervising and coordinating the work of Building Craftsmechanics and other staff performing tasks related to maintenance construction, repair, and installation and incidental fabrication of utilities in County facilities. While the primary emphasis for this classification is supervision of staff, incumbents in this class assist in performing building maintenance and facilities work as needed.

Incumbents in this class report to a Facilities Superintendent or other management personnel. This class is distinguished from the higher class of Facilities Superintendent in that the latter is the first level management class responsible for overseeing all facilities and parks maintenance functions for the County. This class is further distinguished from the lower class of Lead Building Craftsmechanic by the regular, continuous performance of the full range of supervisory duties.

Interested applicants should submit an online County of Yolo Employment Application, responses to supplemental questions and a detailed resume to be considered.
