Associate Director - Specialist Facilities Management Recruiter

Chris Sycamore

About me

Recruiting quality facilities and building management professionals

I’ve worked in UK recruitment since 2014 recruiting for the fast-paced Facilities Management market. I help great FM candidates get the best jobs in total FM. Predominantly I connect quality Facilities & Building Management professionals with leading real estate and in-house brands. I focus on the commercial, residential, industrial, retail, and leisure sectors, and also the Health & Safety and maintenance subsectors.

I lead the Facilities Management Team at Cobalt. Asides from recruiting for Facilities Managers at every level of seniority, I’m proud to be an advocate for the FM industry. My candidates value my career advice, and my clients come to me for guidance on the best FM talent.

Facilities Management is an under-appreciated industry

I’m a sucker for a narrative! Facilities Management is an under-appreciated industry that is on the ascendancy due to the transforming attitude in the way that we view workspaces.

I love playing a small but active part in driving it forward. I’ve noticed the difference since joining the FM world, and look forward to seeing how it continues to evolve going forward.

Running, football and gigs

Outside of recruitment, I love to see the world and I’m looking forward to ticking off as many countries as I can when the world goes back to normal. Whilst on UK soil, I’m into running, football, and going to gigs.

I'm really keen to talk to facilities managers and building managers at all levels who work for managing agents, property developers and owners at all levels or if you're a property company looking to expand your facilities management offering then please get in touch.
