The job

You will be working in the Asset Management and Property Services (AMPS) team which is made up of approximately 20 people in 3 teams; Building Surveying, Facilities Management and Estates.

Our Estates team has 6 surveyors and the Estates Manager role sits within this team.

The portfolio is split into two broad areas, the Investment Portfolio and the Operational Portfolio, which have assets of approximately £100M each.

The operational assets enable us to deliver services and activities administered by the council on behalf of our residents and the investment assets (retail, offices, industrial, residential), are strategic assets held by the council on behalf of the public for either long term investment and revenue income, regeneration/strategic economic benefit, or both.

Your role will be focussed on all aspects of asset management within both operational and investment portfolio, which includes commercial property but also a number of community assets, including commons, cemeteries, open spaces, allotments and recreation grounds.

  • property law and landlord and tenant practice,
  • valuation practice and investment property markets and trends
  • and an understanding of the RICS red book.

You will be equally comfortable working independently as in a team, as well as being,

  • committed to quality service
  • happy to ‘muck in’ where appropriate
  • and appreciative of the value of clear and timely communications.
