Wouldn't you like to work as part of a team that genuinely enjoy each other's company, support each other and share insights and ideas on a regular basis?

This growing company of almost 80 staff are looking to add another key player to the team. We are assisting them in finding a Facilities Assistant with a real can-do attitude. Someone who can pre-empt potential issues and be more pro active than reactive. You will be a strong communicator with a hands-on approach, have the ability to prioritise tasks based on their level of urgency and be adaptable when faced with challenges.

I must stress that you don't need to be ticking every box or come from a background in facilities to apply for this role, but you must have the transferable skills and eagerness to succeed in the job function. With great views from the offices, located next to several amenities and onsite underground parking your only worry will be "when can I start".
