Key Requirements:
  • Previous management experience, with a track record of success in a similar role.

  • Experience-based ‘in-house’ / onsite rather than remote facilities management. Priority will be given to those who have worked in a professional services setting.
  • Qualifications: IOSH qualification is essential, coupled with expertise in Health and safety compliance systems, and methodology.
  • Tech savvy: proficiency in IT skills, particularly Excel, Word, and Outlook to effectively manage data and communications.
