This is a new opportunity to work for one of the world’s leading property management companies.

Our prestigious client has asked us to find a passionate and results-driven Senior Engineering Manager to uphold their world-class reputation and enhance their occupiers’ environments.

About you

Having worked in engineering management in the past, you have developed an extremely customer-focused attitude and a flexible working style in order to deliver the best service possible. With a high level of professional integrity, you are determined to constantly adapt and improve the way you do things.

After more than 10 years in a facilities-related role, you have an encyclopaedic understanding of your legal responsibilities and requirements.

With your considerable experience in ownership and responsibility of a complete electronic security service, excellent delivery of all client services is at the heart of everything you do. You’re able to make organisational goals your personal targets. You have a natural business acumen, and your commercial awareness of the property management sector makes you an invaluable asset to our client.

You’re able to communicate effectively with people on all levels, including clients, building managers, senior support staff and teammates. An accomplished leader, you’ll be able to inspire and motivate your team to achieve incredible results, work as a unit and develop their skills. Whether it’s negotiating, presenting, or planning works, you’re the expert. With third party and contractor management experience, your skills will help ensure the success of all projects.

As a highly results-orientated individual, you have a great deal of experience in project management, including demised tenant fit-out experience. Forward-thinking and extremely well organized, you’ve also been responsible for budget management and health & safety in a previous role. You may also have further experience in fabric management and alterations.

What you’ll be doing

In this highly varied role, you will be responsible for implementing maintaining effective management systems and procedures across our client’s portfolio. Working to improve service delivery and continuity across the mechanical, electrical, transport and public health services of their tenants, you’ll also enhance the value of their properties.

Day-to-day, you’ll be providing technical and operational support to various building managers and occupiers. Helping to manage the Permit to Work System and checking method statements, you’ll also liaise with Building Management and tenants to ensure operational and technical matters have as little impact on your occupiers’ businesses as possible. Overseeing all engineering managers and building surveyors, you’ll ensure both client and occupier satisfaction is consistently high.

Implementing, managing and developing the concept of planned maintenance works, you’ll ensure all relevant information, plant history and drawings are accurate and up to date. Implementing a base building asset register, you’ll also review and develop site-specific maintenance tasks and replacements in line with the budget.

Contract management will also be a huge part of your role. As you organise and attend monthly meetings with associated contractors, you will be responsible for reviewing their reports and any proposals. You’ll be managing tendering procedures, carrying out post tender interviews, producing client contract placing reports and managing contractors throughout mobilization periods. You will also be needed to monitor, analyse and interpret information to ensure all plant and systems are functioning correctly.

Our client will rely on you to ensure their compliance with all current legislation and recommended standards. It’ll also be up to you to make sure all schemes, records and manuals are complete and up to date. You’ll ensure all statutory inspections are carried out by their due dates, and also monitor the progress of actions through external reports, spreadsheets and minutes.

Carrying out regular audits and inspections of plant related areas and equipment, ensuring the safety of all workers and tenants will be in your hands. Completing both planned and random reviews and inspections of maintenance programmes, fit-out works, PPM and reactive works, you’ll be required to report your findings to senior staff.

You’ll work as the middle man between your tenants and their landlords, reviewing occupiers’ drawings, specifications and reports so you can offer your professional advice on the impact on base build operations or any technical or lease concerns. You’ll also oversee planned works in the properties, liaising with appropriate teams to ensure compliance with the approved License for Alteration.

Your flexible working style will make you an asset to our client, as you respond quickly to emergency call outs. Covering sickness and leave in your team, you’ll ensure the continuity of your department. Your commitment to providing a first-rate customer service means you will also offer your expertise during any necessary shutdowns or essential works.

With your vast experience in budget management, you’re already highly skilled at dealing with your department’s financial requirements. In this position, you’ll be responsible for the preparation and management of engineering service charge budgets, including procurements. Managing budget control, preparation of relevant specification, raising orders, and processing invoices, your vast skillset will be greatly appreciated by our client.

As a company proud of its role as a corporate citizen, you’ll help our client in the implementation of environmental and energy conservation programmes to ensure the optimum usage of energy. You’ll also arrange independent energy audits and action their recommendations as necessary. Offering your professional opinion, you’ll be advising on all issues, improvements and potential savings needed to hit targets.

Managing all engineering data and reports, you’ll make sure the appropriate action and follow-ups are performed. Identifying the need for specialist intervention, you’ll review the consultant briefs on a regular basis. You’ll also review and monitor the progress of all works on a monthly basis using external reports spreadsheet attached to M & E minutes.
