King’s College London is seeking to appoint a Senior Space Manager to join its Real Estate Space & Workplace Management Team.

King's College London is one of the top 10 UK universities in the world (2020 QS World University Rankings) and among the oldest in England. Since its foundation in 1829 King’s has defined itself in terms of its service to society, and it now has some 30,000 students and more than 8,000 staff members. King’s Strategic Vision 2029, a strategy which will take the university to its 200th birthday, has pledged that its staff and students will continue to help make the world a better place.

King’s has five campuses in central London consisting of more than 100 buildings ranging in age from the 1780s to new state of the art buildings. The diverse estate portfolio includes the historic Strand Campus (encompassing the East Wing of Somerset House and the Bush House portfolio), world-leading research and teaching facilities at the Guy’s, St Thomas’ and Denmark Hill campuses and modern teaching, residential and commercial accommodation at Waterloo.

Reporting to the Director of Space & Workplace Management, the Senior Space Manager will work closely with King’s Faculties, Institutes and Departments at a strategic level ensuring that the client’s portfolio is fit for purpose and that they achieve optimum use of their space across the estate portfolio. The role holder will work at a strategic and operational level to plan and advise on campus space strategies and requirements for the short, medium and long term. The role will advise on and support new and innovative ways of working for the clients.

The Senior Space Manager will have excellent strategic planning and analytical skills, with the ability to work with end users to balance future demand for space with supply of fit-for-purpose space and facilities an integral part of the role. A track record of leading behavioural change programmes and the implementation of new and emerging technologies supported by data would be particularly advantageous.

The role calls for an individual with excellent interpersonal, communication and influencing skills, who has a proactive and innovative disposition and who will be inspired by working across a very diverse range of space and building types within a world-class research and academic organisation.
