Head of Facilities Management

Salary: £70,000 - £83,000

Location: London

Two amazing boroughs. One incredible team.

Thanks to an innovative Shared Staffing Arrangement (SSA), we can offer a very special type of role: Head of Facilities Management, for not one, but two amazing boroughs. The London Boroughs of Richmond and Wandsworth have come together in a Shared Staffing Arrangement (SSA) to share expertise, increase efficiency and create economies of scale and deliver a first-class service. And that gives you an exciting opportunity to lead a predominantly in-house single FM team of circa 60 people working across both Boroughs.  

As Head of Facilities management, you’ll make sure both councils get high quality, professional services through the in-house Facilities Management (FM) Delivery team. You’ll develop FM strategy, advise senior leaders and manage supplier contracts, both financially and operationally. You’ll also be responsible ensuring statutory compliance and for championing sustainability plans that touch Property Services. Your aim? Excellent hard and soft facilities management and well managed properties. 

We’re looking for a capable senior manager with extensive local authority experience: an organised professional who’s led a team with diverse responsibilities. You’ll know how to manage a busy service, including fast-changing demands. And you’ll have procured external contracts, ensuring high quality performance and customer-focused service.

Your expertise will be based on a degree and professional qualification in a relevant area (for example, RICS, MCIOB or BIFM) and extensive industry knowledge. This should cover best practice, financial regulations and relevant compliance and health and safety legislation. With an in-depth understanding of your field, you’ll be the ideal person to chair Health & Safety and Compliance working groups.

If you also have the people skills to build good relationships with everyone from customers to contractors, join us and shape a skilled and dedicated team.  

In return, you can expect an excellent benefits package, which includes 31 days’ annual leave, flexible working and a local government pension.
