  • Anticipate and communicate potential project management risks and raises to management.

You'll need to have:

  • A degree level qualification, or equivalent proven experience, relevant to the fields of Property or Facilities Management.
  • Vendor management capabilities including procurement of services such as building maintenance and large-scale cleaning services across the Real Estate sector.

  • Knowledge and application of planned maintenance schedules, including SFG20 and CAFM systems.
  • Concrete knowledge of building regulations and compliance.

We'd love to see:

  • Relevant accreditation applicable in the real estate sector.
  • Exposure to building transition projects.
  • Experience in supporting sub-tenant retailers.
