This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the Corporate Surveying Team at NFU Mutual, managing NFU Mutual’s occupied/leasehold portfolio. The occupied portfolio spreads across the UK (including Northern Ireland) and consists of a mix of asset classes including offices and retail.

As the Asset Manager, you will play a key role in implementing the property portfolio strategy. This will involve managing the life cycle of property, from the initial lease acquisition & fit-out through to disposal/relocation, including intervening lease event activity (such as rent reviews and lease renewals). The role is diverse and involves most aspects of general practice surveying, ensuring that each stage is compliant with the Group’s requirements & policies and that all work is undertaken within legal and regulatory frameworks.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Negotiate and advise on lease terms, obligations, and key lease event dates to ensure effective portfolio management, statutory compliance and that lease our obligations are in line with the Group’s budgetary requirements and current market practice.
  • Work closely with internal stakeholders to review the Group’s occupational space requirements.
  • Recommend and implement opportunities to reduce the Group’s unoccupied office space through various disposal initiatives.
  • To build and maintain effective relationships and work collaboratively with key internal stakeholders including Sales & Agency, Group Legal and teams within Group Properties to ensure objectives are coordinated and successfully delivered.
  • Manage and monitor outsourced external providers, (such as managing agents, letting agents and legal advisors).
  • Work collaboratively with the Property Finance team to provide, recommend, advise and validate estimated property expenditure.
