This is an exciting time to join the Facilities Team, as we support the Commission in embracing organisational change and development following the global pandemic.

  • You will also deliver upon a number of key projects and activities yourself within our Estates and Facilities workplan.

What we are looking for

  • Resilience, flexibility, delivery focused and be able to build successful relationships quickly and effectively with a range of stakeholders, including our landlord and external suppliers
