Facilities Manager- St Clare Medical Practice

Role: Other

Location: West Cornwall

Summary: The St Clare Medical Centre is an exciting collaboration of the Alverton Practice, Rosmellyn Surgery and Sunnyside Surgery in Penzance, West Cornwall. In February 2019, the three surgeries moved into a new build health centre in the town with a combined list of approximately 19,000 patients.
This flagship primary care development has created the need for a Facilities Manager to work alongside the three existing Practice Managers to consolidate the relocation of all clinical services and administrative functions, ensuring that all the opportunities that this collaboration presents are fully optimised. The post holder will drive the integration and delivery of existing services, as well as developing new services in partnership with other care providers, patients and relevant local organisations.

They will be confident in supporting the change management process required bringing an entrepreneurial, creative and autonomous approach, whilst having a genuine enthusiasm and commitment to the organisation's ethos and culture. This role requires an experienced manager who is not afraid of getting practically involved. This is an emerging organisation which will require input at strategic, operational and delivery levels. We are seeking someone who will be engaging, pragmatic and passionate about driving best practice in an environment that has an appetite and need to change. A sensitivity to existing cultures and local working practices will be essential.

The portfolio of the post will include facilities maintenance, human resources, health and safety, security, compliance & policy, operational delivery, logistics & premises, business development, IT and communications, training, finance and external liaison. There will be very limited scope for delegation and this will therefore be a challenging, but highly rewarding position. Whilst your experience may have been gained in a variety of areas, experience of the health and care sector and the NHS will be a distinct advantage.
Additional information for candidates including a job description is attached. To register interest, please submit a curriculum vitae accompanied by a supporting letter which describes how your experience and skills meet the requirements of the job description.
