Welcome to The Crown Estate
In 2003 The Crown Estate was formally accredited as an Investor in People - a national quality standard which sets the level of good practice for improving an organisation's performance through its people. This recognised our increased focus on our training needs, on employees' involvement in the business and on our communications throughout the organisation.
The organisation employs approximately 400 staff, at ten different locations throughout the United Kingdom. The two principal offices are in London, and outside the town of Windsor.
In London there are around 170 staff, headed by a senior management team. Windsor employs 200 people, most of whom are engaged in the maintenance and running of Windsor Great Park, including foresters. The other principal location is Scotland where 35 staff are employed.
For management purposes, the estates are divided into four business groups: urban, marine, rural and Windsor. These are all supported by administrative and service teams.
Much day to day management of the estates is entrusted to appointed firms of surveyors who act as managing agents.
