Job Description

About the company:

Space Catering (UK) Ltd is a successful foodservice design and build contractor operating primarily within the hospitality industry.  Having been owner-managed for the first 15 years of its existence, it was acquired by Nisbets Plc in 2016, but has retained its identity as a separate business focused on projects across numerous end user sectors.  The business has a strong ‘no-blame’ culture built on a foundation of teamwork, communication, and transparency.  As part of the Nisbets family, we enjoy the benefits of being a family-owned business which can look to the long term success and growth of the business, rather than beholden to shareholders who are only interested in short term financial returns.

We have exciting plans for the future and this role forms part of those plans.
