We put our Customers and Families First. They are the driving force behind everything we do. We drive forward improvements for them to ensure the service they receive, whether reactive repairs or a major project, is completed safely and on time.

Here at VIVO, we have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Asset Manager to develop and provide structured asset lifecycle planning and maintenance strategies to our United States Visiting Forces contract.


This role will see you develop, update and maintain an accurate asset lifecycle plan, create and design an industry leading reporting function for asset renewal and enhanced maintenance strategies, improve systems and processes, Forward Works and Lifecycle Issues to support an improved user and customer experience and identify business critical reports, and introduce Risk Based Maintenance to customers who require it.
