If you could build a brighter future, what would you do?

Birmingham is a city on the move. Join our Property Services team and you can aim higher too.  We’re a city with a vision. For our communities. For our people. For the future. Opportunity doesn’t wait. And neither do we. We’re building the Birmingham of tomorrow, using the largest property portfolio of its kind. Together, we can change millions of lives for the better.  

From valuation to acquisition to disposal, valuation to development, experience a wide range of professional work. Our elected members and senior officers will look to you for expert opinion and guidance.  There will also be opportunities to get involved in cross-directorate working groups. Your challenge? To ensure we get the most out of our land and property portfolio.

You have experience of professional property work such as valuations, rent reviews, lease renewals and estate management. Having worked on the management of large projects, you bring experience of monitoring performance, finances and budgets. The ability to lead, manage and motivate teams is also essential.  You must also be a RICS-qualified surveyor.

Thrive in an environment that promotes diversity and inclusivity, healthy lifestyle choices, wellbeing and balance. We’ll empower you to be the best you can be, with coaching, mentoring and training programmes that meet your professional and personal development needs at every stage of your career with us.

We also offer:

This is required for shortlisting; you need to describe how your experience and skills fit the essential criteria for the role as specified in the Person Specification.
