Contracts & Support Manager
BGL’s Facilities Management team have a
fantastic new opportunity for a Contracts & Support Manager to join their
team. Based from our head office in Orton Southgate, you will oversee full
responsibilities for all BGL sites to include finances, daily operational task
delegation, risk management and contract agreements. Working in a highly
organised and dedicated team, this role provides a varied role where each day
will present a new challenge.
As a Contracts & Support Manager you
will manage both our Facilities Management contracts and Supplier Management
processes to ensure that work is completed to a high standard in line with set financial
budgets. Alongside this you will be responsible for financial monitoring across
the department to ensure all costs are tracked, future work is forecasted and
any variances within budgets are investigated. You will need to provide monthly
financial reports for your line manager who will use the information provided
to report up to senior directors within the business to assess strategic goals.
In this role you will also have monthly meetings with key financial business
partners in BGL to report on costs and you will work closely with our
procurement team who will assist on high value departmental purchases.
Working across a large number of cost
centres you will need to have a great eye for detail as you will be expected to
work on multiple projects simultaneously, some of which will be based on
forecast plans for up to 6 months ahead of time. As part of your role you will
be responsible for the management of group utilities to include gas,
electricity and water. These energy supplier contracts will need to be careful
analysed and the usage data assessed in-line with current business energy
rates. Where applicable you need to manage the tender process for new suppliers
to compete for our business.
Each of our sites will have dedicated
contracts with outsourced suppliers and you will work each supplier to arrange
regular review meetings to assess effectiveness whilst also ensuring that they
are still delivering to our service level expectations. Throughout your role
you will pro-actively engage and build relationships across the business and
you will work closely alongside other facilities managers to ensure that all business
needs are met.
