Are you a Contracts Manager with experience of leading TFM contracts, looking to work for a company striving to be a frontrunner in the sector? Are you a perfectionist who is always striving to improve performance within your team and contract? I am currently recruiting for a Contracts Manager to oversee 6 critical sites across Norfolk and Suffolk, for a company who specialise in Hard and Soft FM services.

What’s in it for you?

  • Salary of £45,000 - £50,000 per annum
  • £4500 car allowance
  • 23 days + bank holiday per annum
  • A long term career in a successful company, who hold long-term contracts and offer genuine career progression – this very role, has come about as a result of internal promotion – this particular candidates' 4th promotion since joining the business as an engineer. Promotion is based entirely on merit – so taking the next step is entirely down to your own hard work
  • Working for a company who really value their employees well-being which directly impacts the work that they do. Staff are trained to a standard that they are empowered to make important decisions without hesitation.

The role

You’ll be responsible for overseeing P&L and ensuring strict budgets are kept to. You will oversee a team of supervisors who in turn have a maintenance team reporting into them. You’ll be an advocate for continuous improvement within your sites.

What you’ll need:

  • Previous experience of managing TFM contracts and a thorough understanding of strict SLA’s, how these work and the associated penalties
  • 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 mind- going above and beyond for the client and always looking to find new ways to deliver solutions  resourcefully, and in a smart way
  • Collaboration is essential – in order to get maximum client satisfaction, it’s all about working in partnership with your clients and colleagues
  • The successful applicant will be required to go through full security vetting

Experience of PFI or critical site contracts would be highly advantageous. 

The first stage will be a skype interview with myself week commencing 20th January with face to face interviews in Norfolk with client taking place week commencing 27th January.
