Effective Property and Asset Management is a key to the success of us achieving our corporate strategy.

We have restructured our service, so it is positioned for the future and works collaboratively with all stakeholders, to driving change and making service improvements. Now we are recruiting forward-thinking and innovative professionals who’ll place Property and Asset Management at the heart of the council’s broader organisational change agenda.
