This is a fantastic opportunity to join a new and expanding team and play a key role in developing and implementing the School’s ambitious Infrastructure Strategy.
The Uppingham School estate covers 120 non-contiguous acres. 24 buildings are listed (Grades I – II) including teaching blocks, assembly buildings, boarding houses, staff housing, administrative and technical accommodation, and sports facilities. A programme of new buildings followed full co-education in 2001, including a dual-use Sports Centre and a RIBA national-award winning Science Centre, completed in 2014.
As Planned Preventative Maintenance Manager, you will ensure the estate is well maintained and that a high standard of customer service is delivered by the in-house maintenance team and external contractors. This includes ensuring robust planned preventative maintenance schedules and life cycle plans are in place, along with the effective management and monitoring of contractors and third-party suppliers. Alongside this, you will ensure Health & Safety and risk management practices are effectively imbedded in the work of the maintenance function.
You will also work proactively with the Estates Department to establish and maintain a safe and statutorily compliant environment for pupils, colleagues and visitors. You will also support the development and re-implementation of the Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) system ‘QFM’.
Full membership of a recognised professional body e.g. RICS, CIOB etc. with post qualification experience is essential, whilst membership by qualification of a relevant building services professional organisation (e.g. CIBSE, IMechE, IEE etc.) would be advantageous.
If you have previous experience of facilities or property management in a large, multi-site organisation, with knowledge of statutory legislation in relation to estates maintenance, we would be delighted to hear from you.
In return, we offer a variety of benefits, such as:
- 50% contribution to premiums for the School’s private health scheme
- Free annual membership of the state of the art, dual-use Sports Centre (£15 joining fee)
- Free staff lunches in term time
- Sodexo benefits portal
