Are you a contract manager looking to work for a leading FM services provider with responsibility for highly prestigious contract with sites in London and the surrounding counties? If you would like to be influential in managing this fast paced contract then please send me your CV today to laurab@thornbaker.co.uk

I am working with a highly regarded facilities management organisation, providing planned, preventative and reactive maintenance to particularly prestigious contracts in varying sectors.

You will receive a basic salary of between £40,000 - £45,000, plus a car allowance of £5000 per annum, with a holiday allowance of 27 days per annum + bank holidays.

As a company they operate across a diverse cross section of the FM market and have long and secure contracts with some the UK's most recognised brands. They provide a working environment where training and development is actively encouraged. As they are continually winning contracts, opportunities to progress within this organisation are prevalent.


You will be working closely with the relevant managers and engineers to ensure that the contracts are ran smoothly, efficiently and profitably. Therefore you will be responsible for the overall performance of the contracts with full accountability for contractual performance against KPI’s andSLA’s as well as working to agreed budgets.

This role is one where you will be leading from the front and not a position where you will be able to hide away in an office. If you are solution focussed and enjoy being client facing and this role will be for you! Whilst you will have a portfolio of accounts, the one requiring most attention at the moment will be based in Essex, so if you’re based outChelmsfordway, you’ll be ideally situated. You will be expected to take a strategic and measured approach with regards to compliance and customer service as well as leading a team of engineers across the contracts covering electrical, mechanical, and fabric.


To be successful in this role you must be able to demonstrate;

  • Experience of single-handedly managing contracts over multiple sites.
  • A highly methodical approach and the ability to effectively prioritise task
  • Proficient in the use of Microsoft programmes and CAFM systems
  • Excellent levels of customer service and a proactive approach to managing any issues
  • Full UK Driving licence.

Qualifications required for this role:

  • Candidates with IOSH or NEBOSH are highly preferred.
  • Electrical/Mechanical/Building services related qualifications are highly desirable


This role is based in sites in and around London with sites in the home counties – these include Chelmsford, Epping,  Milton Keynes, Bicester and Greenwich– so someone from Essex would be ideally situated to  easily access all these locations.

You may have experience as one of the following: Contract Manager, Contracts Lead, Building Services Manager, Contracts Manager, Contract Account Manager or Facilities Manager.

This is an immediate requirement – 1st stage interviews are likely to be held on Thursday 23rd August in Witham, so if you are looking for a fantastic opportunity to work for a growing FM operator then please email your CV to laurab@thornbaker.co.uk or apply via the website today.
