We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated individual to join Chelmsford City Council’s Facilities Management Team, to assist with the management of the Civic Centre site and ensure the venue hire facilities are managed effectively to provide an excellent level of service.


This role will provide you with the opportunity to become a vital team member, assisting the Venue & Facilities Team Leader and Facilities Manager in coordinating the operational functions and associated facilities management activities on the Civic Centre site. Including, but not limited to, making sure that all statutory regulations and performance standards are met, management service contracts are coordinated, and that all users can effectively and safely carry out service delivery as well as providing facilities for public access and external hire. You will need to be an excellent team player, with the ability to communicate confidently amongst staff, managers, members and internal/external partners. You will demonstrate a forward focus, with a ‘can do’ attitude, seeking innovation and best practice in Facilities Management.
