Maxwell Stephens is currently recruiting for a Building Manager at one of London’s newest most visually-striking and architecturally-important buildings. The office space is occupied by a world-famous technology brand name, this is truly an inspiring place to work.

In charge of one of London’s amazing new buildings

Your main goal is establishing and developing excellent relationships, underpinned by regular meetings, with tenants. Whenever a tenant wants something done, it’s your job to make sure the work is carried out with optimum performance, subject to the Licence of Alterations. You’re the person they go to for anything property-related, including projects, fit-out requirements, service charge queries, arrears, and more.

You’ll liaise with all tenants, including, with discretion, good humour, and a can-do attitude. You’ll keep them up to date with all necessary testing and closing of plant, fire systems, and more. You’ll manage and auction requests from tenants using the Helpdesk system and ensure rapid turnover of residential apartments between lettings.

Great relationships with the tenants ensure the best commercial performance outcomes for our client. You’ll prepare RICS-compliant annual service charges, keeping an eye on budgets and quarterly/annual financial performance.

All charges relating to building work (ad-hoc and planned) and energy/fuel costs will be analysed regularly to look for savings. You’ll record everything as the management information you provide will have a direct effect on commercial performance, compliance, procedures, policies and audits.

You’ll establish good relations and partnerships with authorities and local agencies, particularly the Local Authority, Police, Fire Brigade and public transport providers. You’ll make sure that, when a staff member, a contractor or a crew is on site or doing any work related to the building, that you monitor H&S compliance.

You’ll keep up to date the H&S system and Fire Log Book as well as attend quarterly H&S meetings. Working with the Head of H&S, you’ll ensure compliance with all statutory and client-based H&S policies and procedures.

With a building and a development this large, there’s lots to do with regard to operations and procedures. You’re in charge of them all and you make sure that your teams achieve on time, in budget and in compliance with lease obligations, operational standards and quality assurance requirements the work you give them to do.

You’ll be responsible for the procurement of services, the resulting “permits to work” for contractors, and the raising and approval of purchase orders on the POM system. You’ll monitor performance against monthly KPIs and have overall responsibility for all operational back of house areas.

Why our client will want to work with you

An experienced, highly-organised team leader committed to outstanding customer service and with excellent communications skills, you deal with high-net-worth tenants, staff, contractors, and visitors with professionalism and confidence. You sound and look the part.

You keep your cool in the often-stressful situations that FM presents you with. You’re not afraid to put the hours in because that’s what having a role like this entails.

You have demonstrable experience in a wide range of FM settings and an unrivalled knowledge and understand of health, safety, compliance and monitoring requirements in complex, high-quality mixed-use properties.

You understand the bigger property and asset management picture, operating pragmatically to meet the strategic agenda. You work incredibly well with a minimal level of supervision, running meetings and managing both up & down well.

You’re educated to degree level or higher in FM and are a member of RICS/BIFM. You have good knowledge of Outlook, Word, Excel, and property management database systems.


Demand for this role is going to be high and the client wishes the role to be filled without delay.
