Maintenance Operator

What English Level is Necessary for a Maintenance Operator? CEFR Level B1. Why?

Someone in this role needs to:

  • Complete daily, weekly and monthly checklists on building equipment maintenance procedures and maintain records of scheduled maintenance procedures
  • Respond to emergency maintenance requests as required
  • Coordinate external subcontractors
  • Interact with the Help Desk Support of the material handling providers for the problem resolution

Because the only interaction in English is likely to be in understanding requests, scheduling subcontractors, and speaking with help desks – all of which have very job specific vocabulary – a higher level of English is not necessary.
