It's supporting the team who will preserve the palace for years to come
It's working with a shared and unique purpose. And it's helping to ensure the palace is fit for the future. This is what makes working for the Royal Household so different.
Buckingham Palace is currently undergoing a ten-year programme of works to overhaul its infrastructure - including electrical cabling, plumbing and heating - for the first time since the 1950's. A dedicated in-house Programme Management Office (PMO) oversees delivery to ensure the building is fit for purpose for the next 50 years.
With the early planning and preparation works complete, you’ll join an established controls function at a key stage of the programme.
Supporting the Strategic Planner, you’ll act as the key interface between the PMO and the contractors and consultants to analyse and feed their programmes into the wider Reservicing programme.
This is a large scale programme in terms of duration and complexity, so your analysis, challenge and reports will be essential. Monitoring interfaces and interdependencies, you’ll identify conflicts and variances in order to keep the programme on track.
Digital programming software is integral to our activities. As an experienced user of Asta, you’ll be a key member of the team, reporting on milestone movements to ensure deliverables are achieved and operational hand backs maintained.
In a role that is truly collaborative, you’ll work closely with colleagues across the cost, control and change disciplines. And you’ll use planning workshops to identify and manage risks; aligning them with the wider programme.
No two days will be the same and the variety and pace will challenge you. But as you support others, you'll have exceptional opportunities to grow your own career in a great team environment. And knowing you're contributing to the future of an iconic building will inspire you to deliver every day.
With relevant qualifications and previous planning experience in a construction project environment, ideally with historic buildings, you'll be looking to take the next step in your career.
With a good knowledge of M&E installation sequences and practices, you’ll be keen to apply this to a unique opportunity and within a great team environment.
Your organisation skills will be absolutely vital, enabling you to effectively plan, prioritise and deliver multiple strands of works with varying timescales.
You’ll also need to be digitally fluent, comfortable utilising MS Office packages and programming software such as Asta PowerProject.
As a confident and diplomatic communicator, you'll build great working relationships with internal and external colleagues alike.
With excellent written communication skills and a keen eye for detail, you’ll produce documents and reports for a range of audiences, including board level.
Po active and resourceful, you'll be quick to assess issues, applying good judgement to respond. But above all, it’s your initiative and problem solving skills that will make you an asset to the team and ensure your success
In return you will be rewarded with a comprehensive benefits package, a 15% employer contribution pension scheme (with the option for flexibility - to increase contributions or draw down as salary), with training and development, as well as a range of catering and recreational facilities.
