About the role
It’s conserving the past, while developing its future

It’s organising the process to deliver impressive projects. And it’s the pride in leading a team at the heart of a world famous institution. This is what makes working for the Royal Household exceptional.

The size, complexity and heritage of the Royal residences will present you with some truly fascinating and often unique challenges.

Joining our professional and expert in-house team, you’ll manage an extremely varied portfolio of projects across the Royal estates in London and Windsor.

From preparing specifications and schedules of work, to the appointment of contractors and final handover to the Operations team, you’ll ensure all activities are managed to schedule, budget and to the highest standards.

Managing a team of talented professionals, you’ll oversee the project works of those you work with, whilst also developing their ability and skills.

Every day, like every project, will be different. A vital interface, working closely with colleagues and contractors, you’ll ensure your projects consider the needs of a diverse range of internal stakeholders.

These are occupied spaces which host a busy annual calendar of events. And with supervision of our major and complex projects, you’ll need exceptional communication and planning to ensure that our operations can continue.

And although our processes and ways of working are well established, there is always room for improvement. With each new project, you’ll have exceptional opportunities to grow your own career. We don’t stand still here; and your ideas will make an impact at the heart of our world-famous institution.


About you
Chartered, with relevant professional qualifications and substantial experience as a property project manager, ideally gained within historic occupied buildings, you’re exactly who we’re looking for.

Expert at controlling an end-to-end project lifecycle for complex and major projects, including procurement, financial governance and contract management, you’ll have the skills to deliver a varied range of property challenges.

Organised, proactive and with lots of initiative, you’ll know how to juggle a varied portfolio, and can adapt to tight deadlines and changing circumstances.

With good analytical skills and pragmatism you’re used to anticipating issues and coming up with innovative solutions.

Beyond this, you have experience of managing the work of others, and so you’ll know how to ensure the delivery of exceptional results.

Digitally fluent, organised and with an eye for detail, your record keeping and administration are second-to-none.

A natural communicator and collaborator used to working with colleagues, contractors and in-house teams, you’ll quickly build credibility at all levels.

An internal customer champion, with agility and resourcefulness, you’ll deliver projects that everyone will be proud of.
