As Head of Facilities Management at Barchester, you’ll make a real difference to the lives of residents and patients by ensuring our portfolio of properties and their facilities are maintained to the highest standards.

Working closely with the Property Director, you’ll develop facilities management (FM) strategies that align with our aims and ambitions. You’ll also lead by example, inspiring your team of Divisional Facilities Managers to excel on a daily basis, while fostering a supportive culture across the organisation and developing processes and procedures that will steer your team to success.

Vital to your own success as Head of Facilities Management will be your ability to manage Barchester’s FM budgets and our relationships with FM service partners, contractors and suppliers.

To join us as Head of Facilities Management, you will need to demonstrate a track record of successful decision making and team leadership in a similar senior management role. We’ll be looking for evidence of your ability to deliver top quality FM services across multiple sites, and for examples of the positive results your people management skills have had on the development of team members. A willingness to travel extensively is essential, as is the kind of relationship building skills that will enable you to work effectively with a broad range of internal and external contacts.

As well as a competitive salary, we can offer you impressive benefits which include: a bonus, contributory pension scheme and free training and development. You’ll also have plenty of opportunity to grow your career in our large organisation which is renowned for its warm and supportive environment.

If you’d like to use your facilities management and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality of care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is an empowering and rewarding place to be.
