Whilst the role will be to help oversee and coordinate all APs aspects of the hard FM Service (as well as to be part of all external AE audits to allow an overall and 'overview' compliance understanding, to manage the outcomes) a strong building services mechanical engineering bias would be an advantage to this role (as this is a subject matter area the Trust recognises it needs to develop better resilience and compliance).

The role will also require excellent people skills as well as leadership. The candidate will be part of the Estates senior leadership team and will work collaboratively with colleagues within both Estates and the wider Space and Place teams to ensure effective management and delivery of services across the hospital and in line with the values of the organisation.
