The Merriman is looking for a qualified Maintenance Assistant to join our facility! As assistant you will be engaged with the Maintenance Director to complete both short and long-term tasks. You will be responsible for completing hands-on tasks across the facility grounds both internally and externally. The successful candidate will be skilled in painting, wood construction, grounds keeping, and everyday maintenance. At The Merriman, the successful candidate has the opportunity to interact with residents daily, while maintaining the facilities’ regulatory obligation to the Ohio Department of Health and NFPA Guidelines.

The incumbent Director will be responsible for assisting in maintaining our facility and meeting all expected Life Safety guidelines, NFPA regulations, and ODH expectations.
