  • A consuming focus on people - finding, engaging, developing talent
  • Best-in-class IT and technology solutions to enable that talent
  • Drive to open up the opportunities

Looking for the individual to lead the UK business and to join the senior team developing further opportunities - geographies and scope.

Our Company

MCFT, established 28 years ago, provides commercial kitchen maintenance for high-end customers in the UK and the Middle East; we joke that we won’t work with customers unless we’ve heard of them - and it’s mostly true. We’re also highly regarded by all the key players in our multi-national supply chain.

Our ambition is to be the pre-eminent provider in our field - in the UK and, importantly, overseas - where we have ambitions to be working around the world. That ambition is supported by a fantastic Business Improvement Team - who work on new and future systems, enable our field and office teams and give us the facility to tailor our services to evolving customer needs.

We believe our array of HR Awards testify to the genuine importance we attach to our team: we don’t have widgets or fancy software - our offer is around our people: if they are excellent at their jobs, we will have a great business.

We work at being good with our people:

Renumeration- among the best in the industry - coupled with a stake in the business

Opportunity- our growth gives us a range of roles and locations where we need talent

Development- unparalleled training - in soft and commercial skills as well as technical

Work and workplace- we chose to work for and with outstanding people - and this is a business where your contribution makes a real difference.

We like the cultural precepts of Lean: lead with humility, respect for people, small teams, engagement and self-accountability. Whilst leading from the front with sleeves rolled up, getting stuck into the entrails of the business…

Intellect, spark, curiosity, character - yes please.

We’re at the leading edge of our field - with fantastic future opportunities here and on four continents.

Come and help create the new frontier.

CV and chatty covering letter mandatory - what can you glean about our business and why do you think you’re the one.

No agencies - we’re looking for people who manage their own futures
