What it's like to work here

You’ll be hands on in this role, monitoring compliance, orchestrating works, and delivering on projects. You’ll have the satisfaction of helping look after historic buildings and structures, whilst overseeing all aspects of facilities management and business services to ensure we’re safe and compliant.

You’ll also work closely with other departments to ensure a quality experience for supporters and contribute to wider strategy and long-term planning for our future.  

Some weekend and bank holiday working maybe required.

  • A strong understanding of the core principles and functions of facilities management and buildings maintenance
  • Previous experience of broad compliance and risk management, including knowledge of Health & Safety, Emergency procedures and Fire & Security procedures
