Based in Lowestoft and Melton, Suffolk.

Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils are committed to improving the quality of life for everyone living in, working in and visiting east Suffolk. Already a progressive and successful partnership, we are in the process of combining our two authorities to create the largest District Council in the country, delivering vital services to those who need them most. It is a truly exciting time to join us.

This role will be responsible for driving forward the asset management investment function, placing the team at the heart of the councils' strategy to maximise the performance of our asset holdings.

Reporting to the Head of Operations you will lead on our asset investment, management and disposal programme. You will also advise the councils on all asset investment, management, valuation and estate management issues and oversee an increase in revenues generated from existing and new assets.

As well as managing a team of professional and support staff in the delivery of strategic and operational property management and building surveying services, you will prepare and present committee reports to Cabinet on property issues and conduct option appraisals and viability studies for commercial and retail property.

You must be a chartered surveyor with appropriate post qualification experience, demonstrable first hand knowledge of property issues faced by the public sector and previous experience of working to targets within a commercial environment. Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential requirements for this role as is the ability to manage and co-ordinate work programmes and staff.

In return, we can offer good opportunities for training and development. There is also a superb benefits package, including flexible working options, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking. We want you to stay with us for the long term, so we will give you all the support we can to build a rewarding career with our organisation.

This is a significant growth project and an excellent opportunity to make a real difference in a dynamic work environment.
