We are seeking a motivated and experienced Departmental Safety and Facilities Manager to join the London Centre for Nanotechnology (LCN) to oversee all aspects of health and safety within the department, and lead on building maintenance and development of the large number of labs and facilities.
Working in close collaboration with the LCN Director, LCN Deputy Director, LCN Lab Managers and UCL Estates, the Departmental Safety and Facilities Manager is the first point of contact for all safety and facilities within the LCN, implementing and overseeing new installations and maintenance work as required.
The post holder will be based within the LCN, at UCL. The LCN is an interdisciplinary enterprise between University College London, King’s College London and Imperial College London, and brings together world-class infrastructure and leading nanotechnology research activities. The Centre aims to attain the critical mass to compete with the best facilities abroad, and has strong relationships with the broader nanotechnology and commercial communities, and is involved in much major collaboration.
The post is open-ended and available immediately.
The role holder must be efficient, organised and pay close attention to detail. In addition, the role requires interaction with many people both within and external to UCL, thus a professional attitude, a willingness to help, and an ability to remain tactful and assertive are required in order to adequately execute the duties outlined. It is also essential that the person appointed has: experience of operational health and safety management in a research environment; experience of working with estates management; good knowledge of Microsoft Office software; excellent written and oral communication skills to accurately explain safety issues; and an ability to work calmly under pressure, both independently and also as part of a team.
