Deputy Head of Operations & Engineering


Grade 10 (£51,799 to £60,022)

Manchester Metropolitan University is seeking to appoint an industry-leading professional to take up the post of Head of Estates Operations, within their Estates, Facilities and Capital Directorate.

About the role:

We are a great, modern university, in a great global city, here to make an impact on Manchester, our nation and beyond; with a driving ambition to discover and disseminate knowledge and make higher education accessible and beneficial to all those who possess the passion and ability to succeed. We work closely with our city,  local industry, the community, and our academic peers - locally, nationally, and internationally - to be inventive and creative, generate great opportunities, and enable our students, colleagues and everyone whose lives we touch, to make an impact.

Reporting to the Head of Operations & Engineering, you will lead and manage the Estates Operations Team both strategically and operationally across the University's Estate.  You will ensure that the building portfolio, public realm, and operational maintenance functions within the estate are maintained to a high and compliant standard, and proactively contribute to the development and delivery of the Estates Strategy.

About the candidate:

We are seeking an industry-leading candidate with significant experience in an Estates Operations and Engineering leadership role across a large, complex organisation with a broad range of core activities.  With a background and professional qualification in the estates/maintenance industry, you will possess a proven track record of delivering estates management initiatives that drive organisational change and performance improvement.  You will have a strategic approach to whole life cycle investment, control, and backlog maintenance activities.

You will be adept at communicating with a diverse set of stakeholders with experience of prioritising complex and often conflicting demands ensuring appropriate estates management approaches are deployed and external service suppliers are effectively controlled, whilst instilling a culture of customer care and engagement to support performance and satisfaction.

Manchester Metropolitan University is committed to supporting the rights, responsibilities, dignity, health and wellbeing of staff and students through our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

We promote applications from all sections of the community, irrespective of background, belief or identity, recognising the benefits that a diverse organisation can bring. We particularly encourage applications from Black and Minority Ethnic candidates, who we recognise are underrepresented in this area.

Hybrid working is offered for this role, where you will be able to work a proportion of time on campus and a proportion remotely.  We recognise the benefits and importance of an environment that supports flexible working and are open to conversations throughout the application process.

Closing date: 3 August 2022
