Job Summary:

The Department of Facilities Management and Development at SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University is seeking a full-time Trades Generalist. 

  • A Trades Generalist performs journey-level work in one trade, and skilled and semiskilled level work in a combination of other trades in the repair and maintenance of facilities and equipment. Incumbents may supervise others in maintenance, repair, installation, and construction activities. 
  • Trades Generalists are assigned either to a small State facility where the incumbent functions in the only journey-level maintenance position, or where the organization of work and the maintenance program require the flexibility afforded by this classification. Incumbents of positions in this latter setting may work with individuals whose positions are classified according to specific trades. Trades Generalists, like other journey-level positions, plan and lay out construction, repair, and maintenance projects.
  • The services performed by Trades Generalists vary from position to position so that the listing of specific activities and tasks is impracticable. However, Trades Generalists have one responsibility in common, that of performing a variety of skilled and semiskilled maintenance, repair, installation, and construction tasks in the mechanical, building, motor equipment, and electrical trades. 

Required Qualifications:

  • Non-competitive: 4-years of full-time experience in a trade under a skilled tradesperson which would provide training equivalent to that given in a training, apprenticeship, or equivalent program;
    • OR an equivalent combination of experience and training gained by completion of technical courses in skilled trades at a school, institute, or branch of the Armed Services.
  • When required to operate motor vehicles, candidates must possess a valid New York State driver's license appropriate for the type of vehicle to be operated.
