Property Consultant

Location: Working from home but travelling nationally

Company: CIPFA Property

Salary: £40k + £5k car allowance

Closing date: 29th Feb 2020

Job Specification

As a Property Consultant within CIPFA Property Advisory Services you will be part of a highly experienced, well regarded and professional public sector surveying team supporting delivery of products and services across the Training & Standards, Networks & Conferences and the Consultancy pillars.

With a particular focus on Public Sector Asset Valuation (we expect that you will be a Registered Valuer), you will be responsible for delivering our certificated course in Asset Valuation as well as a host of other valuation related consultancy and property training network events around the country.

Comfortable presenting to small and medium audiences in either a classroom or conference style format, you will be working from home and travelling around the country to support local authorities and other public sector organisations.

As well as having a focus on valuation, the role will require you to develop an understanding of a broad range of public sector property and estates related issues, both strategic and operational in nature in order to develop support services for public sector bodies.

This role affords an opportunity to step away from the coal face of operational surveying and take on a more strategic position where you will be seen as the custodian of best practise. You will get to work with other institutes throughout the public and private sector to help develop best practise guides, policy and tools that will benefit public sector property professionals throughout their careers. It is hugely gratifying and important work.
