Estates & Facilities Manager

Job Reference: 918-TM5246

Employer:
NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT)
Department:
Estates & Facilities
Location:
Newcastle
Salary:
£37,570 to £43,773 pa

NHS Blood and Transplant is looking for people with strong management backgrounds to take control of providing estate and facilities services at one of our centres, and its satellite premises. This is an excellent opportunity to tackle both hard and soft services in a life-changing organisation.

 

You’ll join a unique and forward-thinking team; a team in which innovation, integrity and commitment are encouraged and embraced.

 

Estates and Facilities within NHS Blood and Transplant are different to anywhere else in the NHS (and other organisations too). We operate from 90 properties across England and North Wales, but it’s the nature of the sites rather than the size of the portfolio that really matters.

 

Each main site incorporates laboratories (where blood is processed, samples are tested), we operate apheresis units (for the collection of blood / therapeutic work), occupy offices, mobile team bases and warehouses (where stocks are stored to support the day-to-day operation).

 

It’s this diversity of services and support that makes these roles stand out. If you’re keen to see both sides of estates and facilities management - you’ll be in your element.

 

The role

 

Reporting to the Regional Estates and Facilities Manager, you’ll evaluate and improve services to meet national standards. You’ll also take responsibility for organising the workload and development of your team. Overseeing the full range of estates and facilities services, you’ll be a vital link between us and our customers.

 

With a proven record in estates and facilities management, you will demonstrate technical and budgetary management experience in a service environment, together with excellent communication, leadership, decision-making skills, as well as a good knowledge of Health and Safety Regulations. Showing you’re a confident decision-maker, who’s as comfortable operating under pressure as carrying out one-to-one staff appraisals. Add to that senior-level experience of leading people, then we’d like to hear from you.

 

On-call working is a requirement of this role, an allowance will be paid

 

For informal enquiries please contact Marcus Head at Marcus.head@nhsbt.nhs.uk,

 

Closing date for applications is 23:59hrs on 19 February 2020

Interviews will take place on 06 March 2020
