The role

Oxford City Council is looking to recruit an experienced Senior Estates Surveyor to contribute as part of a team towards the delivery of comprehensive property management in respect of the Council’s diverse commercial and operational property portfolio. 

The work is varied and we are looking for a fully qualified general practice RICS surveyor with a “can do” attitude. The work will include activities such as rent reviews and lease renewal negotiations, acquisitions, disposals, the preparation of valuations and marketing of vacant property, RICS Red Book and rating valuations, and CPO as required.

You will have demonstrable experience of working within a multi-disciplined practice, which may be in the public sector, but is not essential.  You will be well organised, an excellent communicator, adaptable and flexible in your approach yet possessing strong negotiation and influencing skills.

Does this sound like you? If so then we want to hear from you
