Scottish Enterprise is Scotland’s national economic development agency and a non-departmental public body of the Scottish Government. To deliver a significant, lasting effect on the Scottish economy, we work with partners in the public and private sectors to find and exploit the best opportunities. Scottish Enterprise is committed to growing the Scottish economy for the benefit of all, creating more quality jobs and a brighter future in every region.

We are looking for two Contract Advisors to join our Facilities Management team.

The difference you'll make

You’ll play a key role in our post-pandemic reopening. This is an exciting time, with a challenging workload. You'll work closely with existing suppliers to adapt our current operations, while setting up new suppliers to support more virtual and progressive ways of working.

At the same time, you'll contribute to the services that keep our offices running – from leases and planned and preventative maintenance, to front of house services, cleaning and catering. You will also help manage budgets, ensure fair work and real living wage is delivered across our supply chain, and help us find ways to progress towards our net zero ambitions.

With a focus on driving quality while managing cost, you'll deliver ongoing improvements to contracts across low carbon options, safety, sustainability and innovation.

The qualities you'll bring

You are confident handling a range of business relationships – from those with suppliers to senior stakeholders. You can communicate clearly at all levels and negotiate well when needed.

A background in financial process, budgeting and record keeping is a must. And you should have experience of working with contract terms and conditions, mandatory building legislation, and procurement processes. Qualifications in MCIPS or MWIFM would be beneficial.

Motivated to deliver quality service at all times, you’ll be equally effective working on your own and as part of a team.

Application dates

The closing date for applications is 13 December 2021.
