Area Estates Manager
Head of Estates and Valuation
Salary: PO8 £48,495 - £51,453 p.a.
The London Borough of Waltham Forest is committed to Creating Futures, our new Corporate Strategy. This provides a fresh focus and a clear sense of direction. We are fiercely ambitious and strive continuously to make sure each and every one of our residents enjoys a quality life in London.
Effective Property and Asset Management is a key enabler of change and critical to the success of the council achieving our corporate strategy. We have restructured our service, so it is positioned for the future. We work collaboratively with all stakeholders, both across the council and externally, in driving change and making service improvements.
We are recruiting forward-thinking and innovative professionals who’ll place Property and Asset Management at the heart of the council’s broader organisational change agenda.
As a chartered surveyor, educated to degree standard or equivalent, you will be experienced in carrying out valuations, including statutory valuations and undertaking acquisitions. This will include the development of appraisals techniques.
You’ll need experience of managing a mixed and varied case load of conflicting priorities, responding effectively to the needs of all customers.
Previous management experience would be helpful, however we are more than happy to consider those seeking to step up into a management role. The important thing is your ability to lead, motivate and develop those around you.
Over the past few years, Waltham Forest has changed drastically. Good schools, great parks, excellent culture facilities, mass regeneration and budding community entrepreneurship are making it a place that people want to call home.
Waltham Forest as a council has also changed, and despite the challenges of austerity, the organisation has seen its highest ever levels of resident satisfaction. As funding reductions continue, Waltham Forest is creating a council for the future.
Waltham Forest Council is an employer of choice. We offer a huge range of benefits to make working with us more than worthwhile. These include flexible working options, plus learning and development opportunities which will offer the chance to progress your career further. In addition, we offer some serious financial benefits including a defined benefit pension scheme whereby the council pays more than double the employee’s contribution towards a pension payable on retirement.
