Historic Royal Palaces is the charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House Whitehall, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. We help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built.
These palaces need the greatest of care - the years have taken their toll - and we are now seeking to recruit a number of skilled and experienced construction and property professionals to expand our team to deliver high quality conservation, re-presentation and maintenance projects across all of our sites.
One of the positions we are looking for is a Chartered Property Surveyor (with some post-qualification experience) to work with our Property Manager looking after HRP's property interests and planning matters across the whole estate.
You will be dealing with a wide range of property management tasks including; freehold acquisitions and disposals, leases, negotiations, renewals, rent arrears and simple licence agreements.
An excellent working knowledge of planning legislation is required to assess the full effects of proposed developments around our palaces. You will be reporting to Programme Boards, Directors and possibly Trustees, so concise, accurate reporting skills are essential.
You will have excellent communication skills and writing skills, as well as organisational and team-leadership skills. You will combine the ability to work independently with maintaining a detail-conscious and commercially-focussed approach in order to successfully achieve the completion of our significant projects.
