Job Description

Job Title: Hard Services Manager; Facilities Manager
Location: Gateshead
Salary: £40k - £45k (dependent upon experience)

The Opportunity
Do you want the help establish a new facilities department within a globally recognised company?

We are offering a great chance to come in a shape a facilities team from scratch.

We're not saying the Hard Services Manager; Facilities Manager job is going to be easy, it's not. It's going to be challenging, fast paced and involve a lot thinking on your feet but if that doesn't scare you off you could be exactly what we're looking for!

The Role
As a Hard Services Manager or Facilities Manager this is a really exciting opportunity for you to oversee the building and management of a multi-skilled facilities maintenance team. You will be working on a client site which consists of offices, R&D laboratories and production systems for one of Europe's biggest manufacturers.

A client of that size is always going to be demanding but your new employer thinks they're up to the task, they've done it before for the site down South with great success, it's how they've won this contract.

You'll manage a great bunch of multi-skilled Engineers and Technicians (we're guessing, they've not been hired yet either) who are focused on quality. A lot of companies pay lip service to this but these guys really mean it. At other sites they oversee the systems they run are the best they can get, no procedures are ever overlooked, no shortcuts are taken with repairs, staff are valued and this means that over the long term jobs get done right first time.

You
As you may have guessed by now quality is a key word for the Hard Services Manager; Facilities Manager job and during an interview you will be asked about how you've brought this to a similar Facilities Manager or Engineering Manager role.

Technical knowledge is going to be key to this position, whilst you will be given training on the individual systems with the facility, you will need to know your AHU from your FCU before you start to be able to hit the ground running. Plus we'd like you to be able to offer advice to the Engineers reporting into you, you may even get chance to get your hands on some tools from time to time.

Owing to the nature of the site health and safety is of paramount importance so you will need to hold a NEBOSH qualification or equivalent. There will be people alongside you to assist with paperwork such as RAMS and work permits but you'll take the lead.

The Company
Your new boss is passionate about providing great service and value for their clients, this means everyone who comes to work for them needs to be equally enthusiastic and in turn they make sure you feel as supported as their clients do. They want to hire people who want to work for them, not just any old FM company. They believe in collaborating with external companies and clients to find and use the best equipment they can, a tactic that has resulting in a 96% saving in water heating and cooling operational costs at another site they manage.

The site in Gateshead you'll be responsible for has only recently come into their portfolio and so the first few months will involve you finding your feet in the company alongside them becoming acclimatised to the contract.
This is a great opportunity though if you're interested in helping to set a department up from scratch in a highly regarded organisation.
