To achieve this, you must have proven experience in shaping an office environment and ways of working, helping create a working space that is flexible and enhances collaboration.
You will have strong technical FM skills overseeing an efficient, safe, and effective business as usual operation to ensure the smooth running of our two offices, including extensive experience of business continuity planning and crisis management.

To succeed in this role, you must be interested in how the working environment shapes culture, be commercially astute, innovative and solutions focused with strong relationship management skills whilst being prepared to challenge the status quo.
