Want to work for a company that is changing the world? Our client, a leader in their field with big-name customers all around the world are looking for an exceptional Facilities Manager to work at its stunning Cambridgeshire base.

Our client’s premises provide a safe, secure, high-quality environment for colleagues, contractors, and visitors. Compliance and efficiency are key on all levels and with all services, whether delivered by internal colleagues or external suppliers. If you land this role, you’ll be the person striving to improve the standard of the premises, facilities, buildings, and working environment.

You’ll have full responsibility for the company’s site, managing multiple stakeholders across both the premises and the business. You’ll be the facilities leader and completely in charge of making sure all building management procedures are adhered to, right down to maintaining accurate drawings and records. The incoming FM will also control a budget for regular day-to-day maintenance and improvement works, with approval only needed on significant change projects.

You’ll be leading our client’s major environmental and energy drives, developing awareness of and culture in promoting these crucial issues throughout the business around the world as well as at head office.

Our client is a flexible company that fits itself around its customers and its physical environment. A skill in minimal-impact relocation and office move management is particularly desirable as is space-planning in a consultancy business which encourages hot desking.

Your background

You have 5 years’ minimum experience in working with hard services/M&E, showing a basic understanding of HVAC, electrical systems, and PPM. You’ll be able to provide effective control and management of these systems without needing to be an engineer. You can also demonstrate 5 years’ responsibility for high value third party contract and service provider management including hospitality, catering, cleaning, grounds, and M&E.

Your understanding of H&S compliance and risk management is second to none and you’re qualified to a NEBOSH or equivalent level H&S qualification.  Experience of BS OHSAS 18001 and/or HSG 65 is necessary for this role, as is working with a broader range of industry recognised management systems such as 27001 or 9001. You have successfully worked in multi tenanted buildings, with building management providers and on service charges.

Personality-wise, you take pride in what you do and will not let go of a job until it’s done to the very best of your ability. It’s that attention to detail, your natural confidence, and superior communication skills that give the people you manage belief in you and the drive to exceed expectations.

What you’ll be doing

As our client’s FM, you’ll deliver monthly reporting on the facilities support service desk, M&E, E&E, and H&S for the site. They’ll need you to ensure that all agreed service level agreements for the business are being achieved.

You’ll run multiple projects with the goal of improving the facility and raising the standard of service delivered by your team. Speaking of the team, you’ll inherit a committed, professional, and friendly team and you’ll work to develop them further to suit the needs of the business.

You’ll report directly to the Head of Facilities on everything going on in the site from the performance of the gym staff and the facilities team to the quality of delivery of external service providers.

Our client has tenants on-site and you’ll be the main point of contact. You’ll be expected to build and maintain collaborative relationships with them at all times, sometimes in challenging situations. Other important relationships you’ll manage include the client’s partners, practice managers, admin staff, service providers and with the H&S manager looking after their highest-risk occupier.
