The vacancy reads: ‘This role is a unique opportunity to contribute to the success of HRP as we recover from the effects of the global pandemic and ensure that our commercial interests and potential within the real estate area are realized.
A wide range of work is available, ranging from negotiating leases, simpler housing permits, advising tenants and disputes, ensuring housing permits are in place/renewed, developing a stakeholder management plan and advice on corporate rates, to name just a few areas to name.’
Incorporating the recent remote working model into the contract, it continues: ‘Strong planning skills, stakeholder management, commercial awareness and a flexible approach are needed to ensure all procurement and contracting activities run smoothly and value for money is reached.’

Last August, the royal palaces opened their list of vacancies for the first time since the start of the lockdown earlier this year.
At the time, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson told FEMAIL: “As is experienced in the UK, the financial impact of Covid 19 has impacted the Royal Household. While the long-term financial impact is being assessed, we have a temporary cessation of recruitment.”
Buckingham Palace was closed for the summer for what is believed to be the first time in 27 years, with events such as Trooping the Color and Her Majesty’s Garden Parties.
The Queen spent much of the lockdown in isolation at Windsor Castle last year, before resuming her duties in October 2020.
It is believed to have been the 95-year-old monarch’s longest absence during her 68-year reign.
The Royal Family has put their recruiting campaign on hold for self-isolating in their respective homes
