  • Conduct regular building checks to make sure that our buildings are clean, safe, and secure.

  • You will be able to confidentially lead your team in the absence of the Facilities Manager to maintain exceptional customer service
  • You are able to manage the competing demands of compliance and delivering world-class experience for our students
  • You can delegate tasks fairly, bearing in mind your team`s strengths and weaknesses
  • You will communicate effectively, by actively listening, making points logically, and by using appropriate language, tone, and gesture
  • You have great time management and organisational skills, with the ability to work to tight deadlines
  • You remain calm and focused, even in difficult or pressurised situations
  • You are detail-orientated, nothing escapes your eye
  • You are confident working both on your own or as part of the team.
  • You understand and respect the diversity of others` cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds

We will provide you with:

  • A market competitive salary and benefits package
  • Excellent training to support your learning and development
  • An opportunity to grow your skills in a supportive and collaborative environment.
