We're currently looking for a Property and Asset Manager to join our team.
The Property Department covers the whole range of matters that are relevant to the built environment; from development, property management, and facilities management, to office services. It is responsible for both an operational and investment estate of all property types, although with a strong weighting towards commercial property.
Recent changes in the management of the Property Department sees a future where the Department will undergo some transition to improve the way it works so that it is best placed to meet current and future challenges as well as delivering an efficient customer service and property outcomes the Council requires.
With the evolving landscape of local authority funding meaning that councils need to be more reliant on their own generated income rather than central Government funding, commerciality and a business-like approach in dealing with property and third parties is now essential to optimise property revenues for Council services.
