Job Description

Managed Services provide contract solutions for local authorities and the housing community. We offer a bespoke service to suit the needs of the customer and are geared around bespoke contractual and operational solutions, fitting in with the network or branch facility they are supporting.

Delivery of these initiatives will ensure margin is protected as there will be less focus on the price of materials.

  • Ensure that the Company meets all of its contractual obligations during the lifetime of the project, increasing the likelihood of contract extension at the point of re-tender.
