RESULTS

The Facilities Technician position (like all Facility Positions at Valor) is one of service-oriented work. The person who fills this position will be expected to work a variety of jobs many of which will not include sitting or stationary type work. Some computer work will be expected due to the need to send emails manage work order system and complete various reports, but predominantly the workload expected for this position will be one of active and engaged physical work. The Technician is expected to show skill with an array of tools and equipment. Should prior experience not be present, this employee is expected to be open and willing to learn how to use such tools and equipment.

The Technician is expected to take part in the culture of the campus and invest in the lives of students and staff/faculty who reside here. We have various opportunities available for members of the Facilities team to be involved in the culture of the campus such as being assigned a student prayer partner(s), joining student life group programs, engaging in faculty/staff prayer times, attending staff/faculty breakfast/lunch/dinner events, partaking in various in-service learning sessions during days/weeks when the student body is not on campus. A facilities employee, while normally not always in the spotlight, is expected to be a part of the culture of the campus, always seeking to build relationships with students/faculty/staff in a Christ-honoring way that champions the goal of Valor being a tight-knit, Christ-like community.

Finally, this employee is expected to not only work diligently at their assigned tasks and yearly scheduled work but to further develop and make their area of influence more efficient. Bringing new ideas to the table regularly either in facilities team meetings or directly to the Facilities Supervisor and/or Campus Director is not considered an extra job above or beyond the employee’s job description, but an essential quality expected from all employees within the Facilities Department.
