  • Decision making excites you. Your judgement is crucial, as you solve problems quickly and logically to keep the company running as smoothly as possible.

  • Your organisation skills are second to none. You are on the ball with your timekeeping; never missing a deadline. Achieving targets is important to you, so you always diligently plan ahead. Keeping calm in a crisis and thriving under pressure are what you’re all about.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

You’ll also manage staff in departments under remit, helping them to increase productivity and meet the needs of the business; including reception, the post room, file control, information research and catering.
  • The health and safety of all employees at our client will be in your hands as you form and implement new policies and procedures. Your regular risk assessments and swift responsive action will keep your colleagues safe and happy.
  • As the facilities manager, you will make use of your communication skills. You’ll liaise with landlords, agents, and tenants to review facilities, building controls and future plans. You’ll also be the point of contact for any queries and complaints about the premises, as well as for all aspects of the annual power shutdown. You’ll use your skills of negotiation to review supplier and contractor costs and manage tenders.
  • You’ll have the extremely important responsibility of ensuring the security and safety of the building. You will monitor access systems such as alarms, locks codes, and keys.
