Exciting opportunity to lead our facilities management team
Reporting to the Director of Public Services, this is a new role and will provide a unique opportunity for a person of the right calibre to shape and lead in the development of a new FM function for the Council.
You’ll develop FM strategy, advise senior leaders and manage supplier contracts, both financially and operationally. You’ll also be responsible for ensuring statutory compliance. Your aim? Excellent hard and soft facilities management and well managed properties.
What we’re looking for
We’re looking for a capable senior manager with extensive local authority experience: an organised professional who’s led a team with diverse responsibilities. You’ll know how to manage a busy service, including fast-changing demands. And you’ll have procured external contracts, ensuring high quality performance and customer-focused service.
We need an individual who has the necessary energy and drive and can be a strong role model with a personal commitment to high standards and integrity to deliver high performance as well as innovation to continue to improve the service.
If you also have the people skills to build good relationships with everyone from customers to contractors, join us and shape a skilled and dedicated team.
In return, we’ll offer excellent development opportunities, plus a range of benefits that includes a career average pension scheme, flexible working and the opportunity to make a real difference to our local community.
We value diversity and welcome applications from all backgrounds.
