Responsibility for capital and maintenance budgets, managing projects and assessing payment requests against values of work and ensuring project costs are monitored and kept to budget. You will ensure sound project management protocols are observed, risks to the Council are minimised and identifying opportunities for improvement.

To apply for this role you will hold full membership to the RICS or CIOB and a relevant professional qualification.
