Philips Facilities Manager - Technical Hard Services in Eindhoven, Netherlands

Your challenge

Part of Real Estate & Facilities, you will deliver trusted, reliable, unobtrusive and affordable facilities services to meet the needs of business leaders and colleagues housed on buildings under your scope. You ensure we provide an inspiring, safe, healthy and productive work environment at buildings within your scope.

Your team

The Philips Real Estate (PRE) organization carries a worldwide responsibility for all company real estate issues and Facility Management related services. To allow for managing this responsibility and ambition, the PRE organization is structured around services and programs - such as Facility Management (FM), Work Place Innovation, Property/Portfolio Planning and Transaction Management.

The organization design of PRE empowers local markets to drive delivery of RE service with speed and excellence to local customers.

The Real Estate Heads of the Markets are leading the PRE team in the Markets (EMEA, BNL, APAC and Americas). The markets have organized the delivery of the majority of their services through strategic partnerships with Service Providers.

Within the BNL Market team, the Technical Hard Services Manager is responsible for ensuring that the properties which Philips owns, leases or sub-leases operate optimally. This includes proactively managing building related assets (e.g. central heating, air handling units, exhaust, etc.) to reduce risks and maintenance costs; safeguarding maximum uptime, lowest risks and TCO of installations by ensuring proper planning, scheduling, inspecting, analyzing, monitoring and auditing maintenance work. In addition, this role is key in managing the demand and ongoing relationships between the various building users and PRE. The Technical hard services manager works in close cooperation with facility management, project management and finance & accounting.

The role is executed at market level, where focus shifts from tactical to strategic as the span of control increases. Strategic management includes stakeholder relations (stakeholders & tenants), the alignment of the services (including the Service Providers) with short and long term business requirements and the integration of complementary PRE initiatives.

The Technical hard Services Manager, working in the BNL Market, has a solid reporting line to the Market Facility and Site Manager (HTC) and will be part of the RE team of the BNL.
