    About this opportunity:Whilst Trust provides contractors for most repairs, we don't have anyone the tenants can contact for small jobs such as replacing light bulbs, putting up shelves, clean our external cupboards etc due to their families working. It is sometimes hard to get someone that can help them with these tasks which although aren't major, are important to tenants and would be much appreciated.
