St Benedict’s is London’s leading independent, Catholic, co-educational school. The school is a successful blend of the traditional and the progressive; proud of its heritage but also forward thinking and innovative. Within a caring, happy community, our pupils thrive, benefiting from a seamless education which can begin at the age of 3 and continue through to the Sixth Form across 2 different sites. With their continued growth, they are seeking a proactive and driven Building & Services Manager to join the Estates team.

Working closely with the Estates Director, you will have the opportunity to work closely to deliver the maintenance strategy. You will play a lead role with our in-house & contracted teams, across all aspects of planned and reactive maintenance, including minor works and renewals. In addition, you will play a key role in a number of energy efficiency programmes and so to have a proven track record in the management of a similar 'Technical Client' function across a comparable estate is therefore essential. You will have a strong understanding of M&E plant with an in-depth knowledge of statutory compliance.

Excellent communication and interpersonal skills are prerequisite traits, as is the ability to work in a collaborative and customer-focused manner, ideally within a school environment.  You will possess excellent technical skills with a recognised professional engineering/building services qualification and corporate membership of a relevant body.  This role will suit a professional with experience across diverse estates, who is adept in delivering ‘best in class’ services in similar consumer-led environments.

Interview Dates: Tuesday 13th & Wednesday 14th December 2022.
