Maxwell Stephens’ client, one of the world’s foremost media and publishing corporations, is looking for an entry-level Facilities Manager for its London offices with immediate availability.

Interviews Week Commencing 10th April

The role will Start 17th April

If you’ve not been in facilities management for a long time and are looking to progress your career with a world-class company, apply for this role. Everything about the job and the client could improve your employment and promotion prospects for years to come.

A busy, rewarding workday awaits

If you’re successful in applying for this role, your major responsibility at your new work place will be spent managing day-to-day office facilities requirements and the environment you and your colleagues work in, including handling repairs and breakdowns.

Under your control, everything will run smoothly backed up by effective communication with staff. Things like staff induction, security, entry passes, filing systems, A/V, temperature, plants, refreshments, cleanliness, efficiency, managing contractors like cleaners, and encouraging colleagues to keep the place tidy. This will all be just a normal day’s work.

Sometimes the office doubles as a venue for book fairs, licensor days, PR events and more – you’ll make sure this goes without any hitches.

You’ll ensure that the supply and purchasing requirements for the building are met and you’ll have a pivotal say in reviewing, managing and selecting suppliers to award new contracts and renewals to. Factors to consider will be value for money, after-sales support, and the departmental budget.

Health and safety is of the highest importance to our client – you’ll assess, review and implement all H&S requirements, procedures and processes. Things to watch out for will be provisioning adequate Fire Warden and First Aider cover and distribution plus how to support staff with additional needs.

This is a busy office and you’ll be involved in a little bit of everything, from providing support and ensuring adequate cover for the post room and reception, managing and reviewing on- and off-site storage requirements including audits and registers for easy recall, and overseeing the planning and implementation of a big office refurb and the associated seating allocations.

Your six-month mission

Over the course of your six months with our client, you’ll have six targets to hit. Success in doing these will look great on your CV and provide you with a real boost in confidence. They are –

  • Our client will be refurbing their office and seating arrangements and they need you to consider all aspects in its implementation, including lighting, A/V equipment and staff education,
  • Review the company’s H&S contract,
  • Review job roles and remits within the FM department looking for changes and improvements,
  • Work with the HR director on a new disaster recovery & business continuity plan,
  • Go through all the company’s files, policies and procedures to review, update and organise, and
  • Take the lead in setting up new quarterly H&S meetings for the company.


Maxwell Stephens’ client is keen to find and install a promising facilities manager looking for their break upwards in the industry.
