Our client, a growing facilities management and property maintenance provider, are looking for a Facilities Director to join their company.

The successful candidate should have an ‘owner’s mentality’, and will have the opportunity to share in the success of the business and contribute to its growth and enhanced reputation. The FM Director will take responsibility for the delivery of the facilities management service which involves both scheduled and reactive maintenance as well as project works. In practice this means ensuring that their suppliers are delivering to their KPIs; that quotes are coming back in a timely manner and a usable form; and that the clients are confident that once works orders or RFQs are in the system they can move onto the next item on their ‘to do’ list.  The result of this is a growing share of our clients’ business.

To be clear, this is a hands on role and running a maintenance desk would be hugely helpful.

 

Our client are looking for someone with a fresh approach to the industry who is wanting to get their hands dirty and help build a process. They are looking for a team player who is not afraid to take responsibility and see something through. Someone who has a positive attitude and can get people onside.

  • Demonstrated management skills with responsibility for a team that was required to consistently hit targets Innate desire to succeed and a general ‘can do’ attitude
