Facilities Manager

Interested in becoming a skilled facilities management professional? Want to continue studying, learning and working towards professional qualifications? Join us on our Facilities Management Apprenticeship Scheme and you can do both.

Who are our Facilities Managers?
They’re the people who look after all Virgin Media offices and technical facilities – almost 700 of them in total. As well as taking care of the buildings themselves, they’re responsible for catering, cleaning, administration, security and so on. All in all, it’s a big job.

Soak up the experience
Working alongside a senior member of the team, you’ll get exposed to a wide range of facilities management work – from conducting fire risk assessments to managing catering suppliers to organising office moves.

Supercharge your skills
The scheme helps you develop the skills and experience you need to progress into a co-ordinator or supervisor role and ultimately become a facility manager. This includes skills in:

  • Decision making
  • Customer service
  • Contract negotiations
  • Budget management
  • Leadership and management of teams and projects

What we look for
Customer-focused, collaborative problem-solvers who can adapt quickly to changing circumstances. A health and safety mindset is critical, as it’s a massive part of the job. You’ll also need to be a great communicator and relationship-builder.

A great salary and some amazing benefits. Plus the opportunity to add lots more skills to your locker and complete your Facilities Manager Level 3 Apprenticeship.
