As the 5th largest estate in the sector, we are proud of our award-winning campuses, both at home and abroad, and continually invest in the University's grounds, buildings, and facilities. Developing and managing the University's environment is at the heart of our values, ensuring that the student experience and environmental sustainability remain firmly on the University's agenda.

We are seeking a Director of Estate Masterplanning to lead the development and delivery of a new estate strategy and masterplan aimed at transforming the University of Nottingham estate into one that is more efficient, more environmentally and financially sustainable, and which better supports the needs of everyone that lives, works and studies here.
