Do you have excellent communication and negotiation skills, strong organisational skills, experience of working in a political environment, and a good understanding of the operational requirements of public services? If so, we can offer you an exceptionally interesting and varied workload, through which you will have opportunity to become involved in identifying and delivering corporate, service, and partner requirements and projects across the fourth largest county council in the country. 

The Asset Management Service provides strategic management of the council's property portfolio (schools, operational, and non-operational premises) in order to ensure that our property assets enable the delivery of corporate priorities.

As Property Assets Officer you will be an outstanding individual who will play a key role in ensuring that Lancashire County Council's land and buildings continue to meet requirements for service delivery during ongoing and significant organisational change and financial challenge.

You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team who work closely with all county council services, identifying and challenging strategic premise requirements to enable service delivery to the people of Lancashire. Examples of work the team is currently involved in include the integration of children's services, provision of high quality services for adults with complex needs and older people and review of the fleet, transport and highways requirements for depots, etc.      

The successful candidate will also become involved in a range of premises related issues including estates, financial, premises management, design, project and programme management, legal and data management.

Highly developed critical thinking skills are required alongside a proven ability to implement and deliver complex and challenging solutions which are consistent with existing, new or evolving policy/procedure.

With a history of effective partnership working, it is important that you have the ability to both work collaboratively with, and support and challenge internal and external stakeholders and partners, including a wide range of professionals and senior managers.

As well as an understanding of service and/or strategic premises issues and proven project and change management skills, you will be a passionate, driven individual with a record of achieving results against targets. 

The Asset Management Service is ambitious for the future and we would love to hear from you if you think you could fit into our supportive and hardworking team where work is wide-ranging, exciting, and challenging.

We look forward to welcoming you to the team!
