The Facilities and Safety Manager is responsible for the management of facilities across the SWC building, including overseeing contracts for soft services and utilities and undertaking contractual review and contractor liaison to ensure service standards are met.  They will support the broader operations team in the successful operation of the building, and work collaboratively with colleagues and service users.  They will also hold the role of Departmental Safety Officer, and will ensure that SWC is compliant with legislation, implements best practice, and coordinates with central UCL Safety Services in relation to health and safety and fire safety for the building.

This role will require some on-call and out of hours working on a rota basis.

The post is funded until 31 July 2021 in the first instance; the Centre is externally funded with funding awarded in five-year tranches subject to periodic funder review.  Subject to successful grant renewal, it is anticipated that staff posts will be extended in line with successive funding periods.   

You will have managed a variety of building facilities and soft services, and be well-versed in contractual management and drafting Service Level Agreements. You will be confident directing contractors and be adept at setting and monitoring key performance indicators for contracted services.
