The role:

This is a wide ranging Asset Manager role which also encompasses procurement and supply chain management. You will report directly to the Operations Director and form part of the senior leadership team across this organisation.

This is a National role which will see you travel across the UK to manage the assets of critical contracts and buildings. All the contracts are long term public-sector contracts and are PFI based contracts.

The role will see you revisiting the current models of lifecycle asset management across the portfolio to ensure they meet the objectives of both the client and also that of your employer. You will be responsible for ensuring the long term strategy is effective across the entire portfolio. This will involve close and efficient management of the supply chain to ensure alignment with the long-term strategy.

You will work closely with the clients of all the contracts across the business and will be required to report at regular intervals on asset programmes, budgets, H&S and overall contractual performance.

The experience we are looking for:

  • An ONC, equivalent or higher qualification in a technical subject within the building services/FM sector.
  • Experience of working within a PFI contract.
  • Experience of managing a National portfolio – with a willingness to travel across the UK
  • Experience of modelling lifecycle programmes.
  • Experience of managing a supply chain within a building services/FM environment.
  • You’ll be a confident and effective communicator – client satisfaction is a huge priority on these contracts and this is expected to be delivered in an open and honest manner.
  • An innovative and proactive mind- going above and beyond for the client and always looking to find new ways to deliver solutions resourcefully, and in a smart way.

Due to the nature of the portfolio you will be required to go through full security vetting.

What happens next?

The first stage will be a video interview week commencing 2nd March with face to face interviews in London with the client taking place week commencing 9th March.
