Reform Club ~ Employment

Building Manager

The Reform Club is seeking a fully professional and committed Building/Facilities Manager to ensure the physical environment of the Club is fit for purpose for all members, staff and visitors who expect the highest of standards.

The Reform Club is housed in an historic, Grade 1 listed building located in the centre of London constructed in 1842 as a home from home for the Members of the Club, a function which it still fulfils today. The building, and its superb interiors, are internationally renowned, and provide a wealth of facilities for Club members and their guests including restaurants, multifunctional venue spaces, libraries, hotel rooms and offices to name but a few.

The Building Manager will provide the right balance of professional knowledge and expertise coupled with excellent leadership skills to ensure that all aspects of building and services maintenance are delivered efficiently, effectively and sympathetically. The role encompasses management of a variety of out-sourced contracted services and an existing in-house multi-skilled team delivering the full range of hard and soft services. As a member of the Senior Management Team the post holder reports directly to the Chief Executive and will input into the strategic decision making process and devise the long term building strategy, investment and budget. The role will provide the relevant input to improve the building and its facilities, including the development of the 10-year+ buildings masterplan, to ensure the Reform Club remains one of the leading Clubs for generations to come. 

This is a varied and challenging role requiring the full remit of operational, technical, strategic, project planning, legislative and health and safety knowledge and skills. Experience of operating within a heritage building environment would be an advantage but is not essential. Whilst a strategic mind is important caring about the operational detail is essential (e.g. getting the temperature of our spaces right; providing hot water at the right temperature and pressure; providing high standard toilet facilities).

The following skills, qualifications and experience are required to fulfil the role:

  • At least 5 years in a Facilities/ Building management role.
  • Experience managing and procuring sub-contracted services and leading an in-house maintenance team
  • Experience of M and E and building services engineering and building services engineering.

We pride ourselves in providing a stable and friendly working environment with an excellent work/life balance.
