Are you ready to do things on a far bigger scale

Head of Strategic Investment & Assets

£75,000 - £85,000

You’ll lead on the Council’s strategic investment portfolio – currently valued at £40m, and with considerable capital programmes underway.

It’s a diverse portfolio and we will look to you to develop a comprehensive and current asset register, that will enable better evaluation of how assets perform and where there are opportunities to improve how we use and develop them. You’ll look to generate a vibrant programme of revenue generating projects that will support our ambitions to deliver new homes, enhance wellbeing, create job opportunities and improve connectivity across and beyond the district.

This is a role that demands a highly commercial approach, that is balanced with a well-developed understanding of the wider strategic objectives of the Council, and how commercial success can support this wider agenda.  We expect that you’ll already have considerable experience of successfully leading property development programmes and a track record in securing funding to support capital projects. You’ll have a sound appreciation of how to evaluate risk and utilise a range of financial modelling methods to evaluate projects’ viability. It’s important that you understand the dynamics of working within a political setting – either through working with elected representatives or reporting to a Board. You’ll need excellent project management skills that are proven in a similar environment and a thorough understanding of governance and procurement processes.
