Kingsley is working exclusively with a growing organisation based in the Greater Manchester area, which is looking to recruit a Facilities Manager.

This company has numerous sites across the North West and London, and is expanding to reach further audiences through high-quality buildings in order to meet the demands of the communities it serves.

My client has a model of best practice in place, but each site caters towards the local community, with support from local authorities to ensure the long-term viability and success of each scheme.

The role

This facilities manager job in Greater Manchester can be condensed into two main areas: new sites and existing locations.

For existing sites, you will be based in the firm’s head office, with travel to individual locations across the UK. You will visit each site and work with local staff to ensure effective maintenance, the repair of buildings and equipment, and make certain that routine maintenance is carried out to ensure that the buildings remain to a high standard. You will also need to possess strong negotiating skills, so that the company gains favourable terms for facility-management deals across its network.

For new sites, you’ll coordinate statutory requirements, ensuring that the organisation is compliant with relevant legislations, and manage the phased handover of recently opened locations, while training local teams. The successful facilities manager in Greater Manchester will also:

  • Provide support for building procedures and create systems for staff at new sites
  • Attend snagging inspections to monitor and approve works, prior to handover
  • Take delivery of furniture, fittings, and equipment
  • Create plans for regular maintenance regimes and procedure appropriate contracts for implementation

You will also be hands on in regards to the recruitment of cleaners, planning and supervising performance in the early months of the site opening, and creating training programs for new maintenance staff members. This will include drafting literature and being able to deliver the training, which will ensure that new staff members feel that they are fully trained & supported. For the first few months, you will be working closely with the contractor’s aftercare team to monitor and project manage any defects.

Due to the nature of the position, a DBS check is required for anyone successful through the recruitment process. If you like the sound of this great opportunity to join a growing business in the North West, get in touch today. For more facilities manager jobs in Greater Manchester, contact Kingsley today.
