Uttlesford District is consistently identified as one of the best places to live in the UK. We’re ideally located, with easy access to London and Cambridge and an international airport on our doorstep, and yet, the district still retains its rural character, alongside its market towns and villages.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated Estate Manager to establish and lead a small multi-disciplinary team of four staff. You will oversee the delivery of both reactive and planned workload in relation to the properties and other assets owned by the Council. In addition, you will be responsible for the Council owned commercial asset properties, which are spread across the United Kingdom and have a value in excess of £350 million. The role will include liaising with tenants and resolving issues at first point of contact, lease and rent review negotiations to ensure the maximum value to the Council is achieved.
It is essential that you have a ‘can do’ attitude to work, be self-motivated, flexible, take responsibility for a varied workload, be an effective communicator and be committed to team working. Proven management experience is desirable, but we will welcome applications from individuals wanting to develop a new managerial aspect to their career.
To apply, you must be Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) qualified, or actively working toward the RICS qualification with a minimum of 5 years equivalent related experience.
A full driving licence and access to a car available for work is essential. From time to time, there may be a requirement for some out of hours working.
The role will be varied and exciting. Working for the Council we offer a high level of flexibility, a good work-life balance and the support and opportunity to achieve your potential.
Benefit package for the above post includes:
- Hybrid Working
