Vacancies

Closing date - 20th September

Chatham Historic Dockyard is a thriving community with 115 residential properties about 100 commercial tenants including the University of Kent with 600 students and is a visitor attraction receiving up to 170K visitors a year.  It is a unique heritage environment, being the most complete Dockyard of the age of sail in the world.  The estate is owned and operated by Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust (The Trust), an independent charity, that has transformed the formally derelict post-industrial site into the 21st Century, 24/7, place that it is today.  More detail about the Trust and its operations can be found at www.thedockyard.co.uk/ourcharity

The growth of the Trust’s operations requires us to increase the strength and depth of our team by recruiting important roles:

Commercial and Residential and Estate Surveyor

This is a new role focussed on the management, administration and advancement of our established commercial and residential tenant portfolio.  An important part of the role will be to establish processes and systems to improve the professionalism and efficient management of the estate.  There is a complex ecology of uses across the site that must be balanced in harmony and the successful candidate will be able to demonstrate an understanding of this sensitivity and a willingness to work with team members working in other departments to enhance and develop the functionality and diversity of our operations.

The role is likely to suit a property professional looking to develop a career in a demanding but rewarding role or a more experienced operator who is perhaps looking to work in a complex but smaller scale environment.  The role will report to the Chief financial Officer and is supported by a part time assistant.
