Founded in 1967 to serve the needs of global and local families, ACS International Schools educate over 3,700 students, aged 2 to 18, day and boarding, from more than 100 countries. Our schools in Hillingdon, Cobham, Egham and Doha offer a world-renowned curriculum.

ACS Cobham is home to 1,300 students aged 2 to 18 representing over 80 nationalities who are taught by 300 teachers and staff members.

Located on a sprawling 128-acre site, the campus successfully blends the old and the new with historic buildings sitting comfortably alongside modern, purpose built learning facilities.

The campus has seen significant investment over recent years and beyond the classroom pupils now benefit from a multi-functional Sports Centre with a showcase arena and a 25-metre indoor pool, a new Performing Arts Centre with a 509-seat theatre and a 21st Century Interactive Learning Centre. This is in addition to the Olympic sized athletics track, the 6 all-weather tennis courts, baseball and softball diamonds, a six hole golf course, a woodland classroom and adventure playgrounds.


We are now seeking to appoint a Senior Facilities Manager to lead the on-site delivery team in the strategic direction and implementation of best practice whilst ensuring the site is legally compliant.

You will lead the preparation, prioritisation, co-ordination and delivery of assigned projects and programmes across all aspects of planned works, strategic maintenance and minor works, ensuring the campus remains the best in class. This is a senior role that will ensure that students, staff and visitors enjoy a high-quality, safe and customer-focused experience.

About you

You will be an enthusiastic, inspiring and inclusive leader, with demonstrable experience of leading and motivating facilities teams. Demonstrating an aptitude and track record of driving continuous performance improvement, you will be a strong communicator with extensive experience in leading an aspirational customer facing team of both directly employed and contracted staff.

Adept change management and business transformation experience in a similar collaborative environment is essential. This post will suit professionals who enjoy taking full operational responsibility in addition to undertaking strategic thinking. You will hold a relevant facilities management qualification.
