Our extraordinary client is seeking for immediate employment a talented, experienced and visionary building manager.

Rarely do we advertise roles as interesting, diverse and exciting as this one. Our client produces and hosts amazing spectacles in their diverse range of venues.

If you have the skills and background we’re looking for, this will be the most enjoyable and most challenging role in your already illustrious professional career.

What you’re there to do

Within the company, there is a dedicated division responsible for the group’s property portfolio. It has recently invested in transforming their front of house areas including bars and toilets. There is an on-going commitment to improve the technical specification of each venue’s stage and backstage areas. This is all underpinned by a long-term capital investment program into their venues to ensure legal compliance and improve customers’ experience.

Our client is looking to immediately recruit an energetic, creative-thinking Building Manager to work within a world-class & established team which is responsible for the group’s venues in the South East and to assist with others to bring transformation to the company as a whole.

The day-to-day role

The role is full of interesting and diverse challenges. Our client has a multi-million annual spend on property projects and you will get involved in a large proportion of that budget over the long term.

You’ll be responsible for planning, specifying, budgeting and project-managing tasks ranging from replacing fire doors and seats, new kitchen and toilet installation, carpet laying to general repair & upkeep. You’ll also be in charge of maintaining the structural soundness and conditions of our client’s venues.

You’ll represent the Board when dealing with suppliers and contractors, new and existing, during the tendering process and beyond.

Your spend per project will range from £5,000 to £300,000 and, across the company, there’s as many as 40 projects on the go at any one time.

Your work will take you all over the south of England and you’ll be on the road visiting our client’s venues 2-3 days per week.

The Transformer

You are a proactive, experienced and committed person – the type of manager that has driven change across other businesses you’ve worked for.

Our client is a big organisation and they’re always looking to be better at everything they do. They look to their leaders to manage and drive improvement with real purpose, taking their passionate staff along with them. You’ll be key in changing the way they operate and you’ll know how to present the reasons for the change you’re championing to the Board and across the company.

You’ll ideally be RICS/CIOB/BIFM Qualified with a deep understanding of project management, surveying / OR engineering.

Your experience in bringing different teams together on heritage projects from your past roles will be put to good use.

You’re an energetic, exciting person looking for the project of a lifetime with a company that’s different from all the others. This is the challenge you’ve wanted your whole career.

Please apply straight away for immediate attention.
