Uppingham School is seeking an administrator with experience in an estates environment to play a key role in the Estates Asset Management Team as we undertake an ambitious infrastructure strategy to improve and renew elements of the School’s historic estate.

One of your key accountabilities will be to provide administrative assistance to the Head of Contracts, supporting them with the procurement process, liaising with current and potential suppliers and managing and maintaining all contract information.

You will also be responsible for coordinating the Planned Preventative Maintenance Programme (PPM) within the Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM) system, which will involve liaising with both the internal maintenance team and external contractors to ensure that work is completed within agreed timeframes. This will include ensuring that all servicing paperwork is received and issued to the relevant person for approval, as well as ensuring all actions / remedials works are documented on the CAFM system. As part of your responsibility for data entry on the CAFM system, you will also be responsible for highlighting any issues in relation to the system to the Head of Asset Management.

An additional responsibility will be monitoring and reporting on the performance of the internal maintenance team and external contractors to ensure tasks are completed within agreed timeframes.

You will also be the central point of contact for both internal and external stakeholders, which will involve overseeing the reception, answering the telephone, managing the central inbox, organising the receipt and issuing of post and parcels and other administrative duties to support the team.

If you have experience of working in a similar role as well as experience of using a CAFM system and data to support an estates function, we would be delighted to hear from you.

You will also need excellent verbal and written communication skills, as well as a positive, ‘can-do’ and forward-looking attitude, striving for improvement.
