We Are Hiring - Workplace Facilities Manager

Job Description by Daniel Thong

For the past couple of years, we have been operating as an office cleaning provider. Unlike other gig-economy platforms, we hire and train cleaners , handy workers as our own employees paying them generous wages and never shirking our responsibilities to them.  We believe paying people well is the foundation of any good business and we think there’s a massive opportunity to disrupt the facilities space.

More importantly, providing a great service earns the trust of our customers and allows us to  sell them other office facilities services that we believe we can provide.

Since our incorporation, we have grown from strength-to-strength purely by the quality of our service, our obsession with customer support, and our passion for uplifting the lives of blue-collar work.

Through it all, we have slowly evolved into an office management solution for our customers, tackling a wide variety of services that goes into running an office - from disposal services to landscaping services, setting up a pantry, coffee machine/beans rental to pest control services. These are some of the services we can do for our customers.

In the past, to solve these above office management problems, the founders have always taken the onus upon themselves to be the single point of contact for all our customer’s needs, liaising with multiple stakeholders like employees, suppliers and operator partners.

But as we scale and grow, we realise we need to change our operational methods. From one that’s founder dependent to someone to lead the charge of owning the non-cleaning, facilities side of our business.

So we’re ready to hire a workplace facilities manager to lead the charge of owning that responsibility. This person would spearhead the facilities side of our business.

How does that challenge sound to you?
