Reporting into an Executive Director within this medium sized FM provider this role is a senior operational lead (Sector Director designate) for all service delivery activities (M&E, HVAC, Fabric, landscape, etc) into the Defence Sector. My client was recently successful on the new defence framework and are keen to bid, mobilise and operate new FM contracts. The role will be the sector lead and therefore will require the successful candidate to work closely with the business development team to help bid and win work and then mobilise and operate, whilst managing teams delivering the services.
The successful candidate will need to have an MoD (Army/RAF) or DIO background with private sector delivery expertise into the public sector, ideally defence/security focused estate. The services delivered will be predominantly engineering biased and therefore a strong technical engineering background to chartered or incorporated status would be preferential. The focus will be on winning and operating contracts across the South East and West of England and so travel across this area will be required as necessary. This is mainly an operational role and proven track record of managing teams delivering these services on a large scale is essential.
The FM division within the business is about £250m T/O and operates with a diverse range of clients in both the public and private sector. They are part of a wider group business that operates internationally in the construction and civils market. They are a successful and financially strong, growing business who are very keen to develop this new sector. For the right candidate there is a great opportunity to develop the division and carve out a Sector Director position within the business.
