Buckingham Palace is currently undergoing a ten-year programme of works to overhaul the palace's infrastructure wing-by-wing - including electrical cabling, plumbing and heating - for the first time since the 1950's. A dedicated in-house Programme Management Office is overseeing the delivery of this project, to ensure the building is fit for purpose for the next 50 years.
Joining our established Reservicing team and with the support of a Team Administrator, you’ll oversee all activities that ensure the smooth running of the Programme Management Office (PMO).
Organising people, information, equipment and other resources, you’ll ensure all office procedures in place so that processes and duties flow in an efficient manner and our team works effectively together.
You'll be a central point of contact within the team, being the first port of call for queries within the team and wider organisation, as well as responsible for managing the new starter induction process.
You'll provide executive support to the Programme Director, acting as Secretary for Project and Governance Board Meetings and coordinating regular audits, you'll underpin the varied activities of the programme.
Working with specialists in their fields, and with huge range of internal stakeholders, every day your work will be integral in the smooth running of operations.
In this varied role, you’ll lead or be involved with drafting internal communications, rolling out key internal projects and implementing new processes, all the while ensuring compliance and developing operational excellence by continually seeking to improve our processes.
And for you, it's a unique opportunity to develop your existing office management skills in a fast-paced and interesting team where you'll be able to make an immediate impact.
With some previous experience working in an administrative, or operations role, you'll be eager to apply your skills as part of a new team and ideally will have some experience of people management too.
Your organisational skills are second-to-none, and you'll be comfortable prioritising your workload to meet varied deadlines, making you an asset to the team.
You'll also have excellent written communication skills, and you'll be confident adapting your style to produce reports for a range of audiences.
Computer literate, you'll be an expert with Microsoft Office tools and able to quickly learn new programs, and with a keen eye for detail, you'll be able to analyse and make sense of large amounts of data.
Proactive, with a flexible, can-do attitude you're at your best working in a team, but can also be relied upon to work independently to get things done.
And as a confident communicator, you'll enjoy working with varied internal and external colleagues.
Above all, you'll be eager to take advantage of this new role and the unique learning opportunities that it presents.
