  • Contracts Manager
  • £45,000 - £50,000 + £5,000 car allowance
  • Home based with travel around Wales

We are currently recruiting for a Contracts Manager to work on the mobilisation of 3 new PFI schools. The role is a permanent, full-time role, working 37.5 hours a week, Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm, hybrid between home and the sites which are in north and south Wales.

The role is to manage the mobilisation and hard service FM on 3 brand new sites. The role will involve working closely with the schools and developing a strong relationship. As this is the first time FM has been outsourced, you will need to provide guidance and set expectations with the customer around PFI model operation and delivery and so experience in this field is a must.

It’s likely to be intensive with site visits 3 days a week and home based for 2 days for the first 2-3 months of the role during the signing off period but expected to be predominantly home based after that. Travel to the sites is expensed and you can stay over in a hotel should you prefer.

The contract base is expected to grow significantly in the next few years across Wales, taking on more PFI schools and as such this would suit someone who is interested in developing the role into a Regional Account Management role.


  • Positive working environment with a strong culture and ethics
  • Company vehicle or £5,000 allowance.
  • Contributory pension - 4% personal and 6% business
  • Other benefits in keeping with a national FM provider

Duties of the role include:

  • Mobilisation of 3 high-spec, energy efficient schools with further consultation and mobilisation of other schools in the bid process as they come online.
  • Management of P+L (circa £1m at this stage, increasing with each schools)
  • Hiring and managing an engineering team to deliver the hard services FM provision.
  • Managing the KPI’s and workflow of the PFI contract
  • Building and developing strong relationships with the schools and SPV
  • Helping the customer to understand the contractual obligations of PFI and how the performance deductions function as well as navigating them though their new state-of-the-art buildings and how they operate.
  • Produce Monthly and Annual Performance Reports
  • Ensure service delivery exceeds customer expectations and delivers excellence, working closely with the Client to maximise the asset and contract potential.
  • Creating a positive and customer-lead team culture

The Applicant

The ideal candidate will have the following skills and experience:

  • Operationally strong candidate who can lead the client though this transitional period of first-generation outsourcing.
  • PFI experience is essential.
  • Must have managed hard services contracts.
  • Have energy, enthusiasm to create the right company culture.
  • Experience of managing budgets and P+L.
  • Proactive, can-do attitude.
  • Ideally experience in contract mobilisation
