Your new company
Queen's University Belfast are working in partnership with Hays Specialist Recruitment to appoint a number of new key strategic roles within their Estates Directorate team including X2 Estates Managers (Major Projects).

This is an exciting time to join Queen's as they embark on their Strategy 2030 which sets out the University's ambition for the next 10 years. To support this, the Estates Directorate has developed an ambitious Estate Strategy and capital projects masterplan with a wide variety of new build, major refurbishment and estate re-organisation plans.

The Estate Strategy also includes three significant major capital projects as part of the BRCD across manufacturing, digital innovation and clinical healthcare which are currently in the early stages of Design.
