Joining Oxford City Council's Corporate Property Team is your opportunity to make a meaningful impact in a city steeped in history and innovation. You'll be at the forefront of managing and developing the city's diverse property portfolio, from historical landmarks to modern infrastructure.

HAYS are delighted to be working in partnership with the council to present an exciting new permanent opportunity for a Senior Estates Surveyor.

Your new role
As an Estates Surveyor, you will be an integral part of a team managing a diverse property portfolio which includes 350 commercial properties and 400 other assets including a town hall, community centre, moorings, and parks. As part of this role, you'll lead on leasing transactions as well as other individual projects undertaking direct negotiations with tenants, drafting and agreeing heads of terms and also liaising and dealing with external leasing agents.

  • Liaise and build relationships with existing tenants and third-party advisors where required.

What you'll need to succeed
