This is your first role in Facilities Management, but you have a multitude of transferable skills. You’re computer literate, with experience in administrative and clerical duties.

As a self-motivated and proactive worker, you use your initiative to find creative solutions to problems. You always think strategically; making your decisions and actions carefully. Calm and collected, you organise your workload effectively; always managing your time productively to meet deadlines.

You’re personable, yet professional. You can communicate effectively with people at all levels, and can build strong working relationships with both team members, and senior members of staff. As a dedicated team player, you work hard to create a positive and inclusive working environment for all.

A naturally open and honest individual, integrity is everything to you; you believe firmly in transparency and accountability on all levels of an organisation. You’re passionate about helping others, making you perfectly suited to a career in Facilities Management.


With our client, you’ll join a fantastic team of junior facilities staff. Gaining experience together, you’ll be amazed at their commitment and enthusiasm; all as eager as you are to provide an amazing service. Under the guidance of your manager, you will learn all the skills necessary to succeed in Facilities Management.

Assisting the Facilities Director, you’ll help to develop the service to meet the changing requirements of the business. You’ll be providing all general departmental FM functions; delivering maintenance onsite effectively, walking the floors of the building, and reporting issues to the relevant services. Keeping the property in good working order, you’ll allow the building staff to continue their important work safely and productively.

Day-to-day, you will perform building checks to ensure everything is up to standard. You’ll ensure necessary and regulatory signage is up to date and visible, keeping your colleagues informed and safe. Notifying small building and handyman work to the relevant teams, you will keep the facility running smoothly.

In addition, our client will trust you to monitor all equipment, rooms, and services. Liaising with other departments, you will assist in layout concerns and equipment repairs. Your organisation and initiative will make you an asset to the company as you keep everything functioning as it should.

Your proficient administrative skills will be put to good use, as you provide part time Help Desk support. Managing the issuing of tasks to the team, you’ll gain invaluable experience in using the Facilities Management software system, Angus.

Routing jobs and chasing resolutions, you’ll be responsible for ensuring the end user is kept informed throughout the process. Your new employer will value your outstanding interpersonal skills as you collaborate with team members to deliver an amazing service.

In this role, you will learn all the skills needed to start a rewarding career in Facilities Management. Your hard FM skills will develop as you assist your manager and team in large scale projects – such as departmental moves and refurbishments.

This diverse position will help to improve your soft FM skills too. Along with your work on the Help Desk, you will assist the raising and processing of purchase orders as required.


The knowledge you will gain in this role will be priceless. In such a competitive and expanding industry, this entry level FM role within a major, prestigious organisation will provide you with invaluable experience on which to build your career.

This exciting company requires your initiative and determination. The friendly and hard-working facilities team need your ambition and passion to deliver the best possible service.
