Estates Asset Manager - Building Services
Kingston University Service Company Ltd (KUSCO) was formed in 1997 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kingston University. It provides a range of facilities management services to the University. KUSCO supports a diverse range of buildings and occupations across a multi-site estate ranging from a leafy campus at Kingston Hill, to the main Kingston upon Thames Penrhyn Road campus and prestigious museum and conferencing facilities at Dorich House overlooking Richmond Park.
KUSCO is unusual in that it is a hybrid organisation. As a limited company sitting under a higher education umbrella it seeks to take advantage of the commercial freedoms available to it by operating as a private sector organisation, whilst aligning its objectives wholly to support its only client Kingston University. KUSCO aims to provide first class FM services at a commercially competitive price.

The postholder will hold a recognised engineering qualification, combined with professional membership of a relevant professional body (such as CIBSE or the IET).
