Job Description & Person Specification

When it comes to asset management, everyone talks about ‘big projects’. But how big? At oneSource, we’re the real thing. With us, you can take on projects with genuine scope and scale. Our portfolio covers 80 square miles and two London boroughs, and our work has a big impact on the 600,000 people we serve. Building stronger communities? Brighter futures? Better lives? It’s all here. This is bigger than big.

Alongside your regular responsibilities you’ll also deputise for the Strategic Asset Manager when needed.

About you

What you’ll bring to the table is extensive experience across property, valuations, surveying and project management, ideally within a local authority setting or private practice advising public sector clients. You’ll be equally confident providing high level advice to senior leaders or managing complex projects to demanding timescales. You’ll be a natural communicator and collaborator, able to get the right people on side and make difficult issues easy to understand. You should be RICS qualified .

What you’ll bring to the table is the ability to turn strategies into solid plans, get others on board and make our efforts a success. Innovation will come as second nature and form a huge part of your thinking when it comes to improving our services. We need people who are always asking ‘how will this benefit our customers?’ and have the communication and team-building skills to inspire others and bring plans to life.
