Senior Building Surveyor, Windsor Castle

Department: Privy Purse and Treasurer’s Office

Section: Property Section

Location: Windsor Castle

Salary: £55,000 – £60,000, dependent on experience

Hours of work: 37.5 hours per week plus occasional weekend working and on-call work (for which there is a team rota)

About the role:

It's building a sustainable future for world famous historic buildings

It’s inspiring the changes behind the traditions. 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 the Windsor team, you'll be responsible for organisation and management of our cyclical programme of maintenance: a wide range of operational activities, which are a combination of planned and reactive works across the estate.

From identifying refurbishment needs to advising on maintenance projects, you’ll take on the end-to-end management of a range of works, varying in scope and scale.

Every day, like every project, will be different. You'll have oversight of maintenance schedules, compliance and risk, budget management and stakeholder relationships and be responsible for driving works through to completion.

You’ll also play a key role in the development and improvement of our new Computer Aided Facility Management System, ensuring all data recorded is accurate, all with a view to improving our asset management and customer experience.

And you'll ensure the team around you are engaged, motivated and delivering works to the highest standard, and within deadlines. These daily challenges will be vital to the continued running of our historic Estates.

But maintenance and conservation is only half the story. With every new project, you’ll take a strategic view, identifying new ways to improve our working practices and property maintenance.

About you:

As a Chartered Building Surveyor with substantial experience within an environment of occupied spaces, and an understanding of what an exceptional ‘visitor experience’ looks like, you're the expert we're looking for.

Experience of managing and maintaining historic buildings would also prove an asset, but it’s not essential.

You know how to lead projects and maintenance works, considering statutory compliance and risk, whilst also being aware of cost control and contract management.

You’ll also have experience and be aware of the benefits of using a CAFM system as a tool for property management, and can share your knowledge with others.  

Your focus on customer service will be clear in everything that you do, and as an effective communicator, you can quickly build positive relationships with colleagues and external contractors alike.

Highly organised, you'll be confident managing a number of different projects and planned and reactive maintenance requirements, with multiple deadlines across the estate.

At your best working as part of a team, you’ll bring great people management and contractor leadership skills.

You’re a logical and innovative problem solver too, able to suggest pragmatic solutions and keep calm under pressure.

Computer literate and with strong administrative skills, you'll be able to use Microsoft tools and CAD software to deliver your varied workload.

What’s more, with a naturally collaborative approach, you'll enjoy leading in-house and contractor teams to deliver the exceptional.

Company

With the Royal Household, everyday jobs become exceptional. This is because, whatever their role and whichever department they’re in, our people are part of something remarkable. They provide invaluable support to The Queen and Royal Family, enabling them to fulfil their duties and serve the nation. And, working in magnificent and historic surroundings, they’re inspired to deliver to a higher standard.

We are a truly diverse organisation - not just in the range of people who work here, but also in the careers that we offer. Alongside the roles you may expect, you’ll find everything from HR, Finance and IT professionals to Engineers, Curators and Chefs. They all work as one towards a shared and unique purpose.

Building a career here means both upholding cherished traditions and exploring new ideas to take the Household and our work forward. You’ll be trusted and supported, and proud of the contribution you make. Collaboration, variety and challenge will become commonplace. And, in an environment that is unexpectedly business-minded and refreshingly down-to-earth, you’ll be able to take your career to the next level.
