Make Mole Valley Your Next Move…….
Mole Valley lies at the heart of Surrey. The towns of Dorking and Leatherhead are the District’s main centres.
Our purpose built open-plan offices have recently been refurbished. We are located opposite the Sports Centre which offers a swimming pool, sports hall, gym, aerobics studio and café and Dorking Halls, which provides a range of facilities including a café, cinema, theatre and concerts.
About the role
We are looking for an experienced surveyor to work in our multi-disciplinary property team at Mole Valley District Council. Working with a range of property colleagues and other departments within the council, we want to recruit a surveyor to provide a broad level of asset management advice and undertake project specific work within our mixed portfolio.
About the team
Our Property team consists of Estates Surveyors and Building and FM Surveyors who manage the council’s property portfolio, which consists of operational, investment and community land and buildings. We are a friendly and dynamic team, who work collaboratively together and with other departments. We have a number of exciting projects we are progressing and are currently updating our 5 year property strategy for adoption by the council later in 2019.
You will be an experienced RICS qualified Estates or Asset Management Surveyor, used to dealing with their own work load, whilst guiding less experienced members of the team when necessary. You should have experience of carrying out financial appraisals for viability purposes to inform decisions and recommendations. If you have experience working local government that would be ideal, however if not you should have an understanding of how local government operates. You will need to be a team player that is prepared to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in. You will liaise with a variety of people, so having the skills to adjust your personal style accordingly is also important.
We want you to be the best you can be. Therefore, we promise to support you with our annual Performance and Development Review and identify training and career development opportunities.
