About West Dean


West Dean is internationally recognised as a centre of excellence for art, design, craft, and conservation education.  The work of staff and students, frequently rooted in traditional skills, is both innovative and world leading.


Our programmes are delivered across two sites in the UK:  West Dean, the idyllic Grade II listed rural campus in the stunning South Downs near Chichester (West Sussex), and our future prestigious Bloomsbury site in the heart of London.  These inspiring locations provide the ideal environment in which students can work across disciplines and forge exciting new collaborations. 


We are making bold and ambitious moves as an organisation with the expansion of our portfolio, the redevelopment of our estate and our strategic push on diversity and sustainability. 


About The Role


We have an exciting opportunity for an Electrician to join our team in West Dean, West Sussex, playing a pivotal role in the day-to-day care and maintenance of the property.


The successful candidate will work with our Building Maintenance team to carry out maintenance and small electrical installations, complete PMM’s, EICR, E Light testing, PAT testing and minor repairs.  There are multi-skill elements, including basic plumbing, joinery and building repairs, as well as core electrical tasks.


What You Can Offer Us


The role will suit someone interested in working in a small team and who has experience in working on listed buildings and in educational establishments.  The role will also provide opportunities to work with other members of the team at both sites, contributing to electrical projects.   Having the relevant qualifications (see job pack) is essential.  The right person will be a confident communicator, with the ability to build relationships both internally and externally.
