    The salary will be £24,000. This is significantly higher then most Facilities Assistant pay but the sum reflects the importance of this role and of the expectations it will bring, ie, decision making, executing service delivery issues ect.

    You would be working in a professional, cohesive and high profile team of managers, all with a forces background.

    Fixed term for a year with a workable shift pattern in force.

    Any takers drop me a PM for signposting to the correct people. Have a current CV ready and also be aware that because of the nature of the project you will be required to undergo SC clearance.

    This is a very exciting project within a great environment and the levels of training and practical experience you will receive will prove great benefits for your future career.


    Additional info; anyone with the following backgrounds or those that want a change of scenery let me know by PM and ill pass it onto the relevant person.

    * Warehouse Supervision exoperience
    * Contracts Co-ordinator (soft/hard services)
    * Basic Project Management
    * Front of House experience with the emphasis on service provider relationships

    Finally, do you possess NEBOSH/IOSH quals but have yet to find work in the industry?
    Was your service background in stores management, logistical co-ordination ect?
    Have you got a background in security supervision with proven man manangement skills and a wider range of facilities type skills.

    Cheers all.
  2. Just a thought but are you not better putting this to an appropriate recruitment company? Maybe through the service recruitment agencies instead of hawking it back up relentlessly.Wheres the guarantee that this a genuine offer?
  3. Hawking it relentlessly? I didnt know i was being that dramatic.

    If I can be brief?

    It will/would suit a service leaver, former squaddie and/or a reservist.
    A lot of the aspects of the job would suit all of the above
    Did i mention the wage? 24k, with excellent working hours, in this economic climate for an assistant role?

    Thanks for your interest anyway.

    EDITED - the guarantee will be in submitting an anonymous CV that will be looked at and then you would be contacted on the phone number provided. It isnt an interview in a portacabin in the middle of nowhere, your interview will be in a 200,000 square feet facility and a HR department that resemble in size and numbers to the Gunners Front Row circa 92.
