Would you let an electrician with no experience fit out a commercial building that can house over 1,500 people?


It would be a bit of a gamble to say the least! Equally, you have to appreciate that everyone has to start somewhere in life…


This being said, BGL Group are looking for someone who is looking for a role that will provide you with responsibility, freedom and the opportunity to get a real sense of achievement out of the work you do!


What will your purpose be?

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is driven, passionate and experienced in facilities management to take accountability for the delivery of all major/strategic facilities management projects.


You’ll be responsible for the assurance that projects are designed, programmed and financially managed appropriately.


This is a realistic and achievable opportunity to really leave your stamp on the BGL working environment, wellbeing and even our very way of life!


How will you spend your time?

Well if you are someone that is looking for a truly varied role, this is certainly it! You could be doing anything from speaking to suppliers (existing or new) managing contracts and tender process, leading meetings and managing key stakeholders (including executive and non-executive board members).


Apart from this you will have the chance to really have a direct influence on how our offices/sites are designed, managed and transitioned. This can range from office space, meetings rooms and conference suites to on-site gyms, restaurants/cafes and breakout areas.


In addition to this, you will find yourself getting involved with capex reporting, budgeting and forecasting as well as maintaining group occupancy and accommodation reports.


Who will it take?

This is not a role for the faint-hearted... You will be someone who really does strive under pressure! Not just being able to juggle multiple projects, but dealing with stakeholder pressure, time constraints as well as staying within the financial, legal and regulatory boundaries.


To do this you will have your fair share of experience in a similar role. We are looking for someone who has FM experience, dealing with a major project or a portfolio of projects.


Within this kind of role you will have had to manage key stakeholders who maybe senior management or 3rd party suppliers. You will know that being an effective communicator with strong relationship building and leadership skills is key to succeed. But in addition to this, you will understand - due to the nature and variety within this role - the importance of being robust, resilient and influential, as well as being a strong negotiator.
