Facilities Manager


Join the Grundon success story: A rare and exciting opportunity for an experienced Facilities Manager to progress their career in our award-winning business

Are you a qualified Facilities Manager with a proven track record of running builders and contractors, with demonstrable technical knowledge of building services and changes in legislation? Are you decisive and a strong negotiator, with good analytical and problem-solving skills? Do you enjoy the challenge of being responsible for the general upkeep and maintenance of buildings across a multi-site business? 

Based at our Beenham Estates office (you must live or be willing to relocate to within a 40-mile radius of this location), but with regular travel across our Thames Valley and wider South East operating area (to date, 16 diverse sites also covering the Sand & Gravel arm of the business), your responsibilities will include: 

  • Managing the overall services provided within the Company’s facilities
  • Using best business practices, knowledge and experience to manage and reduce operational costs
  • Managing ad-hoc building maintenance by performing repairs or contracting maintenance services as needed
  • Tracking building upkeep, and planning and scheduling anticipated long- and short-term improvements and maintenance
  • Responding to emergency situations or other urgent issues/repairs
  • Ensuring that site facilities, such as water and heating, are well-maintained
  • Ensuring that facilities meet government regulations and environmental, health and safety standards
  • Drafting reports and making written recommendations
  • Carrying out tendering of servicing work (e.g. PAT testing, doors, fire alarms, burglar alarms).


What are we looking for in you?

Ideally you're an experienced and qualified FM:  

  • Facilities Management qualification or equivalent 
  • SMSTS or willingness to achieve qualification
  • IOSH or equivalent qualification


What are the working hours?

Your core hours are Mon-Fri 9am-5.30pm (37.5 hours per week) but flexibility is required to cover the needs of the job and contractors. Early starts, late finishes and weekend working may be necessary if deadlines/emergencies require it. 

What are the benefits & perks?

You'll receive a competitive salary, company car (a full UK driving licence is essential) and attractive benefits, including:

  • When we do well, we want you to benefit too. So we have a discretionary bonus which is payable annually and dependent on Company performance and profits.
  • Pension scheme – auto-enrolment on your first day of employment. You contribute 5% of pay (true cost is less than this due to Income Tax and NI relief) and Grundon matches this. As a member of the scheme, from day one you’ll also receive life assurance cover to the value of two times your annual pensionable salary.
  • Option to purchase additional holiday and join cycle to work scheme (after a qualifying period). 
  • Health Cash Plan to help you manage the cost of your everyday healthcare, such as dentist and optician (you pay a small monthly premium). 
  • Employee Assistance Programme – confidential and accessible 24/7.
  • Perks at Work reward and discount scheme that covers everything from cinema and leisure attractions to fashion purchases and food shopping.
  • Discounted gym membership at participating gyms.
