Workspaces Manager

An engaging workspace is critical to the success of each of our people.

Our ideal is to balance a beautiful and comfortable workspace with a community atmosphere that makes coming to the office a pleasure and the preferred place to work.  

We are looking for someone to help us create and maintain office spaces that represent who are and what we stand for, help our people feel well and supported and encourage collaboration and creative thinking. This position isn't about facilities management (although there are aspects of this in the day-to-day work.) Its about culture-driven community management of our space. We want to treat our people as members of our office, rather than merely employees who need to happy without whatever they get. This role reports to the Chief People Officer to ensure alignment between our culture and values and our space.

To achieve this, we need someone who can think both about the physical aspects of a space as well as the emotional. The role also needs someone who able to move between the routine tasks of keeping the spaces hygienic, clean and well-stocked, the creative thinking tasks of re-imaging desk layout or adding interior design finishest to the boardrooms and welcome area to some event planning and even conceptualizing a team-building event. There is a team of housekeeping staff who will report into the workspaces manager and we are looking for someone with a passion for people development who can help us identify talents and competencies that we can grow in each of them. 

In other words, we are looking for a creative thinker with an eye for design and a love of people, who gets a kick out of ticking off items on a to-do list and can pay attention to the detail.

Does this sound like you? If so, then please apply. Today.
