About the role:
It’s preserving historic structures, whilst building your own career.
It’s being trusted to deliver. And it's providing insight and support that takes the whole Household forward. 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 in a new role, you’ll supervise day-to-day works being carried out across the Royal Estate in Windsor.
Providing vital support to the Operations Surveyors, you’ll help to schedule and oversee a range of works, varying in scope and scale.
Every day will be different, co-ordinating both planned and reactive maintenance, as well as wider repair and restoration projects.
Working with our internal team and external contractors, you'll provide instruction, guidance and advice that will keep activities on track. You’ll undertake regular inspections to monitor the progress of works as well as promoting risk awareness and ensuring quality controls and statutory regulations are consistently in place, all of which will build your expertise and knowledge further.
Keeping project records up-to-date will also be important, and you'll ensure that works are fully documented and communicated to your internal customers effectively.
In all you do, you’ll take a long-term view, planning for the future, modernising our systems and finding new ways to achieve great efficiencies.
And the variety of your work, maintaining the fabric of our historic estates, will continue to inspire you.
With a City and Guilds or NVQ qualification (or equivalent) in a relevant discipline, and property experience, you're exactly who we're looking for. Experience of working with complex historic, or multi-site buildings would be a real advantage, but more important is your drive to take on new challenges that will develop your expertise.
As an effective communicator with effective supervisory skills, you’ll hit the ground running, establishing strong relationships with in-house teams and contractor relationships alike.
Organised and flexible in approach, you'll be able to prioritise multiple tight programmes and adapt to changing circumstances.
You're also perceptive with excellent analytical skills, able to identify problems, understand key issues and investigate alternatives.
Computer literate and with strong administrative skills, you'll be able to use Microsoft tools and CAFM software to deliver your varied workload.
A good team worker, with a 'can do' attitude, you'll work collaboratively with colleagues across functional and geographical boundaries.
And above all, your focus on customer service will be clear in everything that you do, as you continuously aim to deliver exceptional results.
You may have experience of the following: Building Surveyor, Qualified Surveyor, Chartered Surveyor, Maintenance Manager, Estate Manager, Building Manager, Project Manager, Maintenance Surveyor, Repairs Surveyor, etc.
