Help us make a big green dent in the universe. We're on a mission to drive the global renewable energy revolution, and we need loads more people to help us make our vision a reality.
We are looking for a Buildings Manager to join our team and look after our designated Octopus Energy Eco sites.
Whilst our team are busy managing the government mandated ECO obligation, we need someone to look after our buildings and the workspace we use. The Buildings Manager will primarily be located at our Octopus Energy Eco Hub based in Nottingham. You’ll be the first point of contact the visitors, delivery drivers and team members will meet when they arrive on site.
You’ll look after the day to day running of the site, ensuring its clean, welcoming and safe. We’ll also need you to occasionally travel to the other Octopus Energy Eco sites to make sure they’re running smoothly too.
We will provide you with suitable training and support as well as an introduction to other Building Managers across the Octopus Network, so you’re able to work as a team across all sites, although the main responsibility of this role is in Nottingham.

What you'll do

  • Create a welcoming site for the wide array of visitors
  • Provide access to the Nottingham Hub
  • Ensure the Health and Safety of all visitors is a primary focus
  • Give access to visitors and team members, and be the first point of contact for anyone attending the site
  • Create a well managed site by organising the necessary facilities, such as cleaning and waste management
  • Oversee security, fire prevention and other safety systems
  • Oversee contractors and inspect completed jobs
  • Manage occasional deliveries
  • Inspect the building for signs of wear and tear

What you'll need

  • A friendly professional manner
  • Good communication skills
  • Knowledge of buildings health & safety requirements and security practices
  • A practical approach with a can-do attitude
  • Previous experience of managing buildings or facilities would be great, but not essential, however experience in a similar role would be really beneficial
  • Well organised with the ability to manage multiple activities and forward plan for upcoming events
  • Great problem solving skills
  • A good eye for detail
  • A Full Clean Driving Licence
