At Grosvenor, we seek to recruit and develop people who share our values – Integrity, Respect and Trust – and have the skills and ambition to help us implement our strategy.

Hello, we’re Grosvenor

We think this is a really special place to work. So, before we get into the details of this job opportunity, here’s a few words about who we are and what’s important to us.

We’re about delivering lasting commercial, social and environmental benefit

Grosvenor is an international organisation whose activities span urban property, food & agtech, rural estate management and support for philanthropic initiatives to deliver lasting commercial, social and environmental benefit. For this role specifically, there will be particular emphasis on supporting our UK property business where our focus is on creating places where communities, businesses and nature thrive.

We’re steeped in history but focused on the future

You’ll find our roots within the Grosvenor family’s 1,000 years of documented history and over 340 years of property investment excellence. But we are an organisation that’s firmly focused on the future. From progressive environmental action to being at the forefront of community engagement, we work with purpose and embrace change. So diversity of thought, new ideas and fresh perspectives really matter to us. We want our people to bring everything they are to work. Their life experiences, their knowledge, their unique take on challenges and solutions.

What’s it like to work here?

Well, there is plenty to talk about. It’s purposeful, whether that’s greening our places in clever ways or engaging meaningfully with local communities. It’s sociable, in our buzzing café and at our many events. It’s ambitious, which you’ll see in our transformational development projects and investment pipeline. It’s challenging, varied and supportive; did you know we have an employee innovation programme? We also enjoy a flexible work environment and, because it’s a family business, we like to think we are a little less corporate too.

Interested? Then take a look at the job opportunity below. We’re looking for someone who wants to build a brilliant career at Grosvenor and we look forward to receiving your application.

Purpose of role

To help inform, engage and inspire employees, supporting the delivery of our business strategy, strengthening our culture, and enabling our people to champion the organisation.
