Deputy Estates and Facilities Manager
Band 6 £26,565 to £35,577
Ref: 918-TM1835

NHS Blood and Transplant is looking for people with strong facilities management backgrounds and some technical knowledge would also be an advantage, to assist in the management of estate and facilities services at our centre and satellite premises. This is an excellent opportunity to tackle both hard and soft services in a life-changing organisation.

You’ll join a unique and forward-thinking team; a team in which innovation, integrity and commitment are encouraged and embraced.

Estates and Facilities within NHS Blood and Transplant are different to anywhere else in the NHS (and other organisations). We operate from properties across England and North Wales, but it’s the nature of the sites rather than the size of the portfolio that really matters.

Each main site incorporates laboratories (where blood is processed, samples are tested), we operate apheresis units (for the collection of blood / therapeutic work), occupy offices, mobile team bases and warehouses (where stocks are stored to support the day-to-day operation).

It’s this diversity of services and support that makes these roles stand out. If you’re keen to see both sides of estates and facilities management - you’ll be in your element.

The role
Reporting to the Estates and Facilities Manager, you’ll evaluate and improve services to meet national standards. You’ll also take responsibility for organising the day to day workload, development of the team in Newcastle, and to support they key facilities in your area. Overseeing the full range of estates and facilities services, you’ll be a vital link between us and our customers and help us constantly improve the performance and efficiency of the estate.

With a proven record in estates and facilities management, you will demonstrate technical management experience in a service environment, together with excellent communication, leadership, decision-making skills, as well as a good knowledge of Health and Safety Regulations. Showing you’re a confident decision-maker, who’s as comfortable operating under pressure as carrying out one-to-one staff appraisals. Add to that senior-level experience of leading people, then we’d like to hear from you.

On-call working is a requirement of this role, an allowance will be paid.
