We are looking for an ambitious, experienced and driven individual for this newly created senior role, which will require you to lead, direct and effectively manage a high performing, customer focused and cost-effective property delivery function to secure outcomes that help to deliver the Council’s objectives and maximise value.  There is a shared services agreement in place for management of repairs and maintenance services for Brentwood Borough Council’s housing stock and management of this will form part of this position.
