Job Description

  • Asset Manager, Maintenance Optimisation (Civils) – Stansted
  • 2-year Fixed Term Contract (FTC)
  • Competitive salary (based on experience), plus up to 15% bonus and company benefits


Acting as Asset Maintenance Lead for the civil engineering aspects of the airport infrastructure (including roads, pavements, forecourts, car parks, structures, runway and taxiways), you will provide technical expertise and direction to enable the maintenance delivery teams to deliver optimal maintenance strategies and achieve ongoing statutory compliance.  You will lead in optimising asset performance based on data and emerging trends whilst driving efficiencies and reducing our carbon footprint.  You will contribute to developing asset standards, innovation and best practice.


The Company


MAG is the country’s largest airport group. Our assets include Manchester, Stansted and East Midlands Airports.  To ensure that our airports and our 6m Square foot property portfolio, road network, car parks and utility infrastructures are maintained and developed, our Asset Management team works around the clock to drive asset strategy, capital expenditure planning, engineering services, airport asset development, master planning and capacity planning.


The Role


This role will cover civil engineering aspects whilst the airport goes through a major runway refurbishment program, requiring you to be a key stakeholder supporting the Runway Asset Development Lead. You will review/implement optimal maintenance strategies/plans for key civil assets based on industry best practice, overlaid with the relevant requirements for optimisation utilising condition-based monitoring (CBM) and reliability centred maintenance (RCM). This will be based on a cost vs. benefit analysis following a review of the asset base data trends.  You will develop whole life maintenance cost strategies that identify future operating expenditure (opex) and capital expenditure (capex) needs that satisfy service levels and risk.  You will review performance and emerging trends from fault data and develop improvement plans with relevant stakeholders to return asset performance to an agreed baseline before implementing continuous improvements to further drive performance.  You will decide on required interventions such as refurbishments through to lifecycle replacements and disposals.  You will develop the opex and capex needs statements through to business case submission that satisfy demand balancing against operational risk.  You will need to be up to date on obsolescence plus new and emerging technologies to ensure that the best solutions are delivered.  The successful candidate will drive the improvement of asset data required by Stansted’s asset system Maximo, report on asset health indices at the airport and contribute to peer asset health reporting at other airports. With the upcoming Stansted Transformation Program to deliver a new Arrivals building, you will also can be involved in an exciting large development.




A professional qualification or equivalent experience within a Civil Engineering or Asset Management environment is advantageous for this role.  The successful candidate will have an understanding and experience of Asset Management philosophy, tools and practices, alongside good communication skills to be able to present a case briefly and logically.  The ability to manage budgets (on behalf of others) and influence stakeholders to towards a common goal will be required for this role.

This role is ideal for anyone looking to take the lead on the civil engineering aspects of an airport and has the opportunity for someone to develop and make the step up with support from the MAG civil engineering team.
