Job Overview:

The IRC in Boise provides trauma-informed services, including transitional housing, to refugees and other qualified immigrants to support a positive resettlement experience and the achievement of client self-sufficiency. The IRC in Boise operates Monarch Landing, a 50 – 100 room hotel as a transitional housing facility to provide a safe, replenishing home when people first arrive in Boise, while IRC housing staff work to find each family a six to twelve month apartment lease.  Reporting to the Housing Manager who organizes day to day operations at Monarch Landing, the Maintenance Technician will fix broken or inoperable items within unit rooms and common spaces as needed.  This position is occasional, part-time, at hours mutually agreed to by IRC and the employee, to fill in where maintenance service provided by a third party cannot be delivered as quickly as needed, or with the substantive knowledge needed, to protect the safety and well-being of a Monarch Landing resident.

Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

Receiving instructions on repairs needed from the Housing Manager.
Gathering necessary equipment from IRC / Monarch Landing storage.
Unclogging sinks, tubs and toilets.
Restoring electricity via flipping breakers.
Diagnosing causes of broken or inoperable equipment.

Document all repairs following IRC recordkeeping and reporting requirements.
Other duties as assigned.
Communicate with the Housing manager and the designated representative of the property owner regarding defined expectations, boundaries and limitations.
