If you work in construction, are a “good communicator” and fancy a change of scenario, you just may be in luck.

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) will oversee delivery to ensure the building is fit for purpose for the next 50 years.

The palace is currently recruiting a full-time Planner whose job it is to act as the key interface between the PMO and the contractors and consultants to analyse and feed their programmes into the wider reservicing programme.  

The job pays £38,000 per annum, for 37.5 hours per week, over 5 days, Monday to Friday (travel required).

The job description continues: “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.”

The Queen will move out of her private rooms to elsewhere in the palace during the renovations, but the chosen applicant might still have the chance of bumping into Her Majesty and Prince Philip as they go down to breakfast in the morning… you never know!
