Elmbridge’s Asset Management and Property Services team (AMPS) is recruiting and we
need an enthusiastic, committed and pragmatic person to help us make a difference in
Elmbridge; we need you!
You will be working in the Asset Management and Property Services (AMPS) team which is
made up of 16 people in 3 teams: Building Surveying, Facilities Management and Estates.
Our Estates team currently has 3 surveyors and the role sits within this team. We work on a
collaborative basis and so you will have exposure to all parts of the property portfolio, with
colleagues in AMPS and across the organisation. Most importantly, you will also be dealing
with customers and partners.
The portfolio is split into two broad areas, the Investment Portfolio and the Operational
Portfolio. Both of which have assets totalling approximately £100M each.
The operational assets enable us to deliver services and activities administered by the
council on behalf of our residents. The investment assets (retail, offices, industrial,
residential), are strategic assets held by the council on behalf of the public. These are assets
for either long term investment and revenue income, regeneration/strategic economic
benefit, or both.
Your role will be focussed on all aspects of asset management within the portfolios. You will
be set individual tasks set around utilising the property in the Councils ownership. Seeking to
protect and enhance the financial, legal and social responsibilities of the Council in line with
To give you an understanding of the Councils property ownership and what the team does,
our 5-year Asset Management Plan (2019-2024) is available for review. The plan forms the

Because of the technical nature of the role, you will possess a surveying degree or have a
significant amount of experience in the commercial property industry. You will be a member
of the RICS to Associate level or above and working your way towards full membership if
you have not already achieved it.
We are ready to support your development and skills in the evolution of your career. All you
need to do is show us that you can undertake property related tasks professionally and have
a desire to progress. Some basic outlines of the areas which you will have experience of;
· property law and landlord and tenant practice
· valuation practice, property markets and trends
· and an understanding of RICS best practice in areas associated with asset
You will be equally comfortable working independently as in a team, as well as being,
· committed to quality service
· happy to ‘muck in’ where appropriate
· and appreciative of the value of clear and timely communications.
We know we ask a lot, but the good news is that we give a lot too.
· Flexibility: And we really mean it! We know you have to juggle work and life
commitments and we are happy and open to discussing the right mix for you.
· Wellbeing: When you thrive Elmbridge thrives, which is why we have developed a
strong and varied wellbeing programme for our employees, from mindfulness to sports
groups and social events. (Covid regulations allowing) – the options are there for you.

university, it is an ongoing journey and we will support you on that journey by creating a
bespoke learning and development plan.
