What you’ll be doing
Reporting directly to the Managing Director of Real Estate and Facilities, you’ll be responsible for the company’s drive to increase space efficiency and utilisation in its London and EMEA regional offices. By analysing our client’s current and projected head growth count, you’ll assist with space planning development, working closely with the Facilities and IT teams as needed.
You’ll be the lead in development project management budgets and timescales, making sure at all times that overall objectives and internal client needs are met, including all ad-hoc works. You’ll also devise and implement alternative working strategies for our client, working with cross-functional teams and external partners like real estate brokers.
Across all offices, you’ll build and maintain productive working relationships with leaders from other locations and parts of the business. A major part of your role will be contributing to the client’s real estate budgeting and forecasting, always with an eye to find ways to deliver greater efficiencies.

Who you are
First and foremost, you’ll need to demonstrate experience and success in office moves, refurbishment and change management within a professional services environment. You’ll know from first-hand experience how to manage multiple competing interests and priorities.
You’re used to leading on projects like these whilst successfully liaising with wider facilities teams, internal customers, and external service providers. You’re skilled in determining and enforcing policies for space management and always have a firm handle on budgetary formulation, analysis, and management.
You’re a self-aware, adaptable multi-tasker, leader and collaborator with a proven ability to develop robust business strategies. You’re an excellent presenter, negotiator and influencer with a proactive, tenacious problem solving skillset.
Underpinning how you do your work is a strong financial and analytical mindset driven by logic and organisation. Degree-educated and with excellent Microsoft Office skills, your strong written and verbal communication skills will be essential.
