The Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) is seeking to recruit an outstanding individual to lead our Building Services Team, with responsibility for the day-to-day running of the Building.

You will manage a planned and breakdown maintenance service for all mechanical and electrical plant and services within the Building, involving colleagues from the University Estates Management and Building Services where necessary.

Working closely with senior managers, you will be responsible for the planning, implementation and supervision of any alterations or refurbishments within the Building. You will also act as the Fire Safety Officer to the Building and be responsible for the management of Health & Safety of the Building Services Team.
