Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a global resource for plant and fungal knowledge and the world's leading botanic garden. We are a major visitor attraction and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We have two sites, one at Kew Gardens near Richmond in London and one at Wakehurst in Sussex and over 800 employees and 500 volunteers. Our staff work and collaborate across the world.

Reporting to the Estates Manager, The Engineering Manager (Electrical) will take responsibility for the delivery and implementation of the estate's maintenance strategy at RBG Kew and Wakehurst, with a specific focus on electrical engineering. The maintenance strategy underpins the standards required and ensures the constant availability of the built facilities across these sites. This individual will manage an outsourced Hard FM Service provider to deliver and implement planned preventative maintenance, reactive maintenance and minor works.

The successful candidate will have proven experience of delivering maintenance and small works projects across a similarly diverse and high public footfall estates portfolio. You will be a strong and commercially minded contract manager, adept in monitoring contractor performance on all aspects of electrical maintenance to ensure value for money and the highest standards of service are delivered across the estate. The Engineering Manager will also ensure that all electrical installations meet the relevant compliance standards and current legislation.

Candidates applying for this position are required to hold a recognised formal electrical engineering qualification to HNC / HND level, combined with professional membership of a relevant professional body (such as CIBSE or the IET).

We are particularly seeking to maximise the potential of our history, brand and physical environment from an estates & FM perspective and we are therefore seeking candidates who have a track record of successfully operating in a best in class environment. Excellent stakeholder engagement skills and a customer-oriented approach is essential.
