Ford & Stanley Recruitment

Are you an Asset Management specialist looking for the next step in your career?


Do you want to work in a role that will offer you the freedom and autonomy to make a real difference to the railway network in your area?


The Opportunity


The Civils and Infrastructure Division at Ford and Stanley are proud to be working in partnership with a leading Train Operating Company in the Greater London Area. The team are looking for a confident and astute Asset Manager to oversee all Buildings/Civils-related assets across their station portfolio, including buildings, platforms, footbridges/paths, and canopies.

As an Asset Manager, you will be stepping into a unique and multi-faceted role, one which offers huge potential for personal and professional development. The next step up from this role will be Senior Asset Manager, but the experience that you will gain within this role could open up a number of opportunities within the wider business, further down the line.

Once fully competent, you will be operating in relative autonomy and will have the ability to implement your own ideas, change, challenge, and streamline existing processes, and make a real difference in how the business unit operates.

There is also the potential for this business unit to grow,  through the development of an in-house Facilities Management team, which could offer another interesting element to the role.
