Senior Facility Manager - Property Management 

At Electrolux we are on a journey to shape living for the better. By creating desirable solutions and great experiences that enrich people’s daily lives and the health of our planet, we want to be a driving force in defining enjoyable and sustainable living.

The Real Estate & Facility Management (RE & FM) team at Electrolux head-office in Stadshagen in Stockholm – a workplace for 1,500 persons - is responsible for delivering relevant workplace services and a healthy and nice office environment in a sustainable and cost-effective way. A well working office environment is a crucial prerequisite for our employees to be able to deliver at their best. The responsibility also covers site security and property asset management.

We are now recruiting a Senior Facility Manager with overall responsibility for the property management at the headquarters to our team. The role is offering a great opportunity to make a difference both to the employees & consultants at HQ, to the company’s business result as well as the environment. The environment is high paced and dynamic and will provide excellent opportunities to challenge your problem-solving capabilities.

A typical day

You come to the office, you touch base with your colleagues and align on the status in the ongoing projects. You make some phone calls and answer some emails. You go through your day and prepare for the meetings.

The first meeting is with a customer – a lab manager: One of the entities has presented a request to build a new lab. You have a first planning meeting to go through the request. You discuss different alternatives. You explain to her that the facility team will support her in the solution creation process, manage the supplier selection and procurement process, and will present a budget for the job – all jobs which include any changes in the property’s fixed installations go through you. 

The next meeting is with the property technician. He reports the status of all ongoing jobs and lifts open questions which need to be addressed. You go through the remarks from the latest audit. Discuss possible options and what next steps to take. 

The rest of the day you are busy with analysing the energy consumption report, you see an unexpected deviation and wonder if it is a reporting mistake or if the deviation is real. You initiate some complementary investigation and decide to bring it up with the property technician at the next meeting.
