Electrical Facility Manager

ABOUT THE ROLE

Facility manager’s main mission will be to manage and leverage the maximum power from our suppliers, mainly with the FM supplier. Based in a broad technical knowledge, he/she will lead the day-to-day relationship in terms of planning, preparation and field execution according to the internal procedures.

FM is responsible for monitoring the infrastructure management activities of Datacenters leading technically all our suppliers, working together with other FMs and other teams.

His/her perimeter covers all technical areas in the Datacenter, with very strong needs on: Electricity,  Low Current (access control, CCTV…) and H&S management, among others.

It is one of the main players in the quality of service rendered by our suppliers, especially in terms of continuity.

Working very closely with the different suppliers and mainly with the FM company with focus on: Planning maintenance, prepare corrective works (review and validation of changes and MOPs when required, attending dry runs, BMS follow up of the installation to ensure a good performance, supporting other teams that could require on the field support for projects (Construction, Service Delivery, Energy management, quality and compliance team, among others).

FM will work closely with the Critical Environment Manager supporting, from the technical perspective, all Incident management

FM will be part of the on-call team for Data4.

FM will support the CEM and the CSM team in terms of customer communication providing them info related to maintenance operations, preventive planning, incident management, RCA analysis, action plans tracking, correctives, small projects follow up, BMS monitoring, reporting will be his/her mains activities.
