The Opportunity
Looking for a Facilities Manager role with a difference? Keen to contribute to a social enterprise? Passionate about professional development?

We're a residential care and education provider looking for a passionate Facilities Manager to make sure our sites are as safe and comfortable as can be. This is a really satisfying position that makes a difference to people's lives and we believe you should be rewarded for that with great support and ongoing professional development through training.

The Role
As our new Facilities Manager you'll be responsible for our 4 residential care and education sites across the Greater Manchester area. These facilities cater for children and so the role comes with a lot of interesting projects relating to health and safety in a unique environment.

Working closely with education and care professionals to shape the sites for purpose you'll take charge of all facilities and maintenance projects, PPMs and reactive works. The majority of these will be carried out by contractors and so as Facilities Manager you'll develop relationships with these suppliers.

As an organisation we continually look to develop and like all our staff to have the most up to date information at their fingertips.

The Facilities Manager position will involve working in a sensitive environment and so you need to have excellent communication, customer service and diplomacy skills in order to interact with Site Managers and clients.
If you've come from a maintenance role in the medical, social care or education sector we'd be really keen to hear from you.

Owing to the nature of the Facilities Manager role a full UK driving licence is required.
