Area Facilities Manager
£35,000 to £41,000 per annum (plus excellent benefits)

Surrey Police and Sussex Police work in collaboration in a number of areas including specialist crime and operations to deliver even greater efficiency and effectiveness, improving services and resilience at a reduced cost. This includes a joint operation across all estates services and property management working out of their two main HQs at Guildford and Lewes.

The Area Facilities Manager, reporting to the Facilities Services Manager, will oversee teams responsible for managing Surrey's portfolio of 34 sites. This includes a broad spectrum of soft FM services and health and safety responsibilities such as fire safety. The primary objective is to ensure compliance, safety, and operational efficiency, thereby supporting officers and staff in delivering effective policing services.

We are seeking a self-motivated leader who will be responsible for guiding and developing a team of Facilities Managers and Co-ordinators. Together, you will navigate a diverse property portfolio, setting performance standards and fostering a culture of excellence. Collaborating closely with the outsourced FM contract provider, you will ensure security and health & safety compliance are maintained at all times. Based in Surrey, you will join a newly integrated team supporting both Surrey and Sussex Police Forces, working alongside Area Facilities Managers in Sussex. Your influence will extend to refining FM services and establishing consistent best practices across both regions.

We are looking for a positive, innovative leader with proven management skills and the ability to thrive in a demanding multi-site environment. Experience in managing multiple sites and coordinating projects is essential, along with excellent communication, interpersonal, and organisational skills.

There is a requirement to be part of the on-call escalation rota. You will be available for emergency escalation and decision making. In case of urgent needs, on-site attendance may be required.
