What do you bring?

Strong communication - Strong verbal and written communication skills are essential for any good maintenance planner. Writing detailed work orders and manuals to explain complex processes is essential to maintaining safety standards in the workplace. Failure to do so can cause delays or even result in a technician missing vital safety information and risking injury.

Project management - Maintenance planners must schedule maintenance work so as not to interfere with operations or production activities. They must also use their best judgment to triage work orders in case of an emergency or maintenance backlog. What's more, their responsibility is to coordinate and oversee all maintenance tasks from start to finish.

Problem solving - Dealing with unexpected contingencies is commonplace in maintenance management.

Organization - As the person responsible for enforcing organization and timeliness with respect to maintenance tasks, maintenance planners must have extraordinary organizational skills.
