Job Details

Our busy Facilities team in Plymouth are looking for a Facilities Manager to join them on a full-time, permanent basis. 

This is an exciting opportunity to manage all aspects of facilities in the local office of a multi-site law firm.

What does the team do?

Our Facilities Services team are one of the many teams that keep our business running smoothly. A key cog to the Plymouth office, the team ensures we have a great office environment to work in and all the facilities we need to be successful. 

So, what are we looking for?

You'll be responsible for supervising our post room & archiving teams whilst working closely with our catering & reception teams and so experience of people management would be desirable.  What's equally as important however, is that you are approachable and supportive with great communication skills.

The Facilities Manager role requires someone who is resourceful and organised.  You'll need to be able to work to deadlines and enjoy interacting with lots of different people.

You'll manage our supplier contracts, oversee building and office equipment maintenance, maintain office security and ensure that health & safety standards within the workplace are upheld.  You will also manage the company fleet, including providing advice & guidance to drivers and maintaining our internal fleet information pages.

As Facilities Manager you will also be involved with budgeting, and so you'll need to have an awareness of costs and the importance of exercising financial control over facilities spend.

What makes it great to work here?

We continually work hard to create an open culture that sets us apart from other firms. Our culture gives us much more of a human feel, emphasising that we're more than just suits!  We like and make time for each other enabling us to establish professional relationships that can often become lasting friendships. 

Through our D&I initiatives we create an environment in which difference is valued.  We have a Diversity and Inclusion Group, led by our Board Sponsor, which works with our colleague networks (we currently have firm supported networks for race, ethnicity, and cultural heritage, LGBTQ+, disabilities, families, and women's career development and we're in constant dialogue with our people about how we expand our networks to better support everybody).  We encourage applicants from all social backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, gender identities and sexual orientations. Please get in touch to let us know how we can give you the best possible recruitment experience.

As signatories to the Mindful Business Charter, it's important that our people are able to maintain healthy and happy lives, both in and out of work.  We have a number of resources and initiatives designed to support health and wellbeing, including our team of dedicated mental health first aiders.  We recognise that getting the right work life balance is a priority for all of us and we're very happy to talk flexible working, full-time or part-time working patterns.  We also recognise the challenges of relocation and post-pandemic return to the office.

And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can choose and vary the benefits that matter most to you.
