What you’ll be doing…

  • Deliver research and intelligence for all council assets to understand their contribution and condition, maximise their commercial opportunities, support sustainable management or appropriate disposal.
  • Work with internal and external partners to find innovative ways to manage the community assets from a financial perspective, using a range of different sources of funding to maximise the benefit to the public.
  • . Ensuring assets owned and/or managed by the Councils comply with all relevant legislative, regulatory, audit and reporting requirements
  • Ensuring that all built assets are maintained and wherever possible enhanced.


You must have…

Degree standard education, or have worked for a minimum of 3 years at a senior level in the built environment, asset or property management sector, or be able to demonstrate other relevant experience. A good working knowledge of asset/property management, current environmental and landscape management issues with sound professional judgement and strong negotiating skills, with experience of developing projects and working collaboratively with external companies.


What’s in it for you…

Our package includes:

  • 25 days holiday increasing to 28 days after 5 years’ service plus bank holidays (pro-rata for part time employees)
  • Opportunity to work your hours flexibly to improve your work life balance (where operationally possible)
  • Employer pension contributions of 15% with the option to make additional voluntary contributions
  • Access to our One Team Rewards scheme including discounts in high street shops and restaurants, employee assistance programme and car lease scheme – with more to come!
  • Payroll giving scheme
  • Regular reviews with your line manager, develop a personal development plan, as well as opportunities to undertake training
  • Compassionate leave and sickness entitlement for times of need
  • Support towards volunteering days in the community and encouragement to be involved with fun activities to raise money for local and national charities.
