You’ll be responsible for a full range of asset management, valuation and estate duties across the boroughs of both Newham and Havering. This covers a diverse range of commercial, operational and agricultural properties and you’ll manage things like rent reviews, lease renewals and new lettings. You’ll also carry out valuations of land and buildings, manage repairs programmes and provide expert advice to the Council on any land or property matters.

There’s also a strategic side to the role. As a project manager on some of our property schemes, you’ll be expected to find ways of improving our services and our knowledge of the market. It’s about finding quality and value for money in everything we do, expanding our capabilities while developing great working relationships with all our stakeholders.

What you’ll bring to the table is solid local authority experience in estates and valuations roles, combined with a sharp knowledge of property management. But we also need talented communicators who can work with all kinds of people and make complex issues easy to understand. Flexibility is also key, as you’ll be working across two boroughs and managing multiple projects and deadlines.

All our team members are also expected to share our commitment to equality of opportunity, outstanding health and safety as well as compliance with data protection laws and confidentiality.
