Bristol is an exciting and diverse city to live and work in. Bristol City Council reflects this, working to improve its citizens’ lives and the city in which they live.
The Council’s Property Investment Team is part of the overall Corporate Landlord function within the Council. We are currently looking for two experienced asset management surveyors to help it manage a large portfolio of properties within the City boundary and across all asset classes.
The portfolio offers an interesting mix of standing investments and long leases and is an important and growing source of revenue income for the City. Assets range from city centre retail, office and leisure uses, a wide range of industrial units through to covered market operations and City Docks properties.
We are looking for commercially experienced chartered surveyors who are keen to help us to grow and improve the portfolio in the coming years. You are looking for a varied and interesting workload and to develop your own expertise.
As a member of a small team, you will be involved in all aspects of portfolio management including asset management initiatives to re-shape the portfolio and improve returns. You will work with the Council’s Property team and a wide range of Council colleagues, as well as managing a range of external consultants who help support the delivery of transactions and projects.
You’ll need to demonstrate that you are commercially minded, a good team player, with the ability and confidence to think laterally and deal with a wide variety of property interests and stakeholders.
You will also be able to demonstrate strong interpersonal skills, as from time-to-time you may be asked to support large-scale projects across the Council - separate from your day-to-day portfolio management work - where significant property advice is required.
