Head of Property and Facilities

Alexandra Palace

Alexandra Park and Palace is 150 years old this year and with great ambitions for the future it is an incredibly exciting time to join our leadership team. As we look to redevelop our vision, our longer term aim is to bring areas currently closed to the public, back to life. With environmental sustainability underpinning our future the next few years will see some incredibly exciting projects delivered across the site. 


We need a Head of Property and Facilities who is an expert in their field and who shares our values to help realise our ambitions. We need some with significant experience of operating in a complex organisation and who understands the complexities involved in ensuring the safe management of a significant heritage building and what it means to navigate around a live site. The ability to engage effectively with a broad range of stakeholders and the instinct to know when to move quickly between the operational and strategic will be vital for success. 

We are open on which sector you may come from, as long as you bring a track record of operating in large, multi-dimensional or multi-site and complex organisations and can demonstrate you are ready and ambitious for a new challenge. You will be a collaborative and engaging leader who is resilient, with a good EQ and excellent management and relationship building skills that will help win ‘hearts and minds’ during times of change. Working closely with the Executive Team, you will speak with authority and bring some experience of engaging at senior levels alongside an understanding of good governance.  

As part of the leadership team, you will contribute towards our goal of being Net Zero by 2033 and Carbon Neutral by 2041. 

We are very committed to broadening the diversity of our organisation at all levels so that we fully reflect the communities we serve and particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic candidates.
