  • Ensuring the effective upkeep of the building fabric and plant by overseeing a comprehensive planned preventative maintenance programme's implementation, as well as managing any reactive works that may arise in future.

This role is to be viewed as a floor, not a ceiling: our client is outstripping competitors by continuing to grow despite Covid, and is looking to invest in passionate, property, people who can progress within the company as it continues on it's upward trajectory.

Our client is looking for an established Building Manager, with previous experience in managing commercial multi-let office developments within the Real Estate environment. You will embody the "new-school" approach to FM that recognises its lasting impact on occupier experience and wellbeing within properties managed, and be able to enhance that experience.
