The Facilities and Maintenance Technician of the ARLGP is responsible for a range of repair, maintenance and custodial tasks. As half of a two-person department, the position requires an organized, self-motivated person who is comfortable with interruptions to address sudden, emerging situations without losing track of recurring tasks.

A day’s work will typically involve a range of maintenance tasks (such as replacing HVAC filters), custodial tasks (snow removal, trash removal, floor drain cleaning), supply ordering and receiving, repair tasks, interacting with vendors including those in the construction trades, and working alongside and interacting with the organization’s many volunteers and staff members.

The person in this position must be entirely comfortable around the dogs, cats, and various small animals who are at the heart of the daily business of the organization.

Experience with facilities-oriented tasks is a plus, as is experience with components of the construction trades, since part of the work involves recognizing and diagnosing problems with the building’s plumbing, electrical, HVAC, mechanical and structural systems, as well as problems associated with the equipment used in the buildings. We perform some repairs ourselves ranging from screwdriver repairs to those requiring a range of power tools, and hire vendors for others.

This position is a full-time, Sunday through Thursday once through the probationary period, 7am-3:30pm with flexibility required during winter weather. This position is considered essential personnel and reports to work regardless of weather-related factors.


  • Be able to work independently and provide feedback on the status of current projects
  • Excellent communication skills, strong organizational skills, and the ability to work effectively with others across the organization and with external vendors
  • Computer skills: Microsoft office suite
  • Pleasant and professional phone demeanor
  • Be able to perform basic building maintenance and repair tasks, including basic carpentry, plumbing, painting, and equipment maintenance tasks
  • Valid Maine driver’s license with good driving record
  • Basic grounds-keeping skills
  • Proactive and positive ‘recycle, reuse, re-purpose’ attitude
  • Must be able to lift at least 50 lbs. unassisted
  • Must be able to shovel snow
  • Must be able to work on a ladder
  • Able to access a non-handicapped accessible building several times per day as well as climb steep stairs unassisted
  • Able to scoop, bend, twist, lift, climb and squat as part of normal job functions
