Comprising the SEC Centre, SEC Armadillo and the OVO Hydro, the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) is Scotland’s premier venue for events, concerts, conferences, and exhibitions. We’re looking for an experienced, motivated and ambitious Head of Facilities and Compliance to lead their team towards achieving our vision to become the Best Event Campus in Europe. With a campus of 63 acres, including three world renowned and distinctive venues, public domain, road and cycle network and the landmark covered walkway across the Clydeside Expressway, this role is considered one of the UK’s highest profile facilities management leadership positions.

Additionally, it entails developing and executing a comprehensive facilities management strategy, incorporating advanced technologies and sustainable practices. Managing a diverse team of facilities professionals, partners, and contractors is essential, fostering a culture of teamwork, excellence, safety, and continuous improvement. Furthermore, the position involves supervising major projects, renovations, and infrastructure upgrades from planning to completion, integrating assets and developments into regular operations.

  • Oversee the planning and financial management of a significant annual budget including capital works, maintenance, utilities, compliance works and housekeeping, providing regular updates to the Director of Operations on progress within the financial year and forecast developments required for future financial years.
  • Work closely with the Head of Projects to scope and plan the Facilities Team’s involvement in SEC projects by carefully planning resources to ensure involvement from the early stages in order to influence the scope, design and appointment of contractors to ensure that all campus developments are fit-for-purpose, future-proofed and fully able to be integrated into the SEC’s day-to-day operation and maintenance schedule.
  • Work closely with the SEC’s Health & Safety Team and Event Safety & Security Team to develop and monitor the responsibilities for each Team.

Operational Requirements

  • Create a culture and overall operation that ensures all infrastructure is robustly protected and cared for and that services are delivered to the highest standard by team members, partners and contractors.
  • Relating to the SEC’s Asbestos Management Policy and Asbestos Management Plan, ensure that all team members and contractors operate as required and that all intrusive works are effectively planned, communicated and managed and ensure that known ACMs are not disturbed. Ensure a complete understanding of the SEC’s Asbestos related policies, procedures and toolkits.
  • Develop and monitor the Facilities Team Risk Assessments for the SEC campus and its three main venues and contribute to the wider corporate SEC Risk Assessments.
  • Oversee the SEC’s approach to contractor management and the delivery and logging of appropriate and effective inductions, including ensuring full consideration of the SEC’s dynamic event activity.
  • Support the development and implementation of Incident Management and Business Continuity Planning. Develop a rolling programme of testing and exercising to ensure that the SEC is ready for potential incidents and emergencies.
