ActionAid is an international charity that works with women and girls living in poverty. Our dedicated local staff are ending violence against women and girls and helping change lives, for good. We won't stop until women and girls are out of danger, out of poverty and on track to create the future they want.

This is a varied, challenging and rewarding role within ActionAid UK. The main areas of focus are:

* to run an efficient and responsive operational Facilities Management team

* to develop and manage a property and estates strategy to ensure that our environment meets the needs of our workforce and organisational strategy both now and in the future

* to act as the security focal point, supporting all aspects of security, including supporting staff traveling into and out of the UK in alignment with our global security and travel policy, premises and operations security.

As Facilities Manager, you will provide a collaborative, inspiring, safe, resilient, efficient and cost-effective working environment for all staff in our London and Somerset Offices.

To achieve this, you must have proven experience in shaping an office environment and ways of working, helping create a working space that is flexible and enhances collaboration.

You will have strong technical FM skills overseeing an efficient, safe, and effective business as usual operation to ensure the smooth running of our two offices, including extensive experience of business continuity planning and crisis management. To do this you will have had extensive experience working with IT and infrastructure teams as well as third party suppliers and contractors.

To succeed in this role, you must be interested in how the working environment shapes culture, be commercially astute, innovative and solutions focused with strong relationship management skills whilst being prepared to challenge the status quo. You must also be a member of IWFM or equivalent as keeping up with current thinking and best practice is an essential part of the role.

As the Facilities and Security Manager you will also need to have experience of travel security, in particular with respect to risk assessments, ideally within an international development / humanitarian organisation.

As the Facilities Manager is responsible for running an operational Facilities Management team, we are keen to receive applications from those who are skilled at leading, motivating and developing high performing teams and who can confidently develop, maintain and monitor plans and budgets.

If you have a proven technical background in Facilities Management and can demonstrate that you are able to get buy-in for change from stakeholders and the wider organisation and are confident in facilitating new ways of working, this may be the ideal role for you.

ActionAid is committed to supporting flexible working. If you would like to discuss flexible working options, there will be space to do so during the interview process.
