Team Reading: Shaping one great place.

Current roles

Assistant Director: Property, Assets and Facilities Management
£80,309 to £93,812

This new role has a distinct emphasis on delivery – turning good ideas and intentions into action on the ground. An experienced leader with knowledge and skills in a wide range of property disciplines and asset management, you’ll be familiar with innovations in the sector and will play a central role in high profile projects to support and evolve our retail offering, deliver the maximum return from council assets, and ensure that the town derives the maximum economic benefit from the enhanced connectivity of Crossrail.

We’re making considerable investment into property, and you’ll develop our asset management capacity to ensure that this investment is managed effectively, delivering sustainable returns that support a confident, self-sufficient local economy. You’ll also establish a first-class corporate landlord function, ensuring that Team Reading’s facilities are fit for purpose, supporting quality service delivery and innovation.

Your track record should include compelling experience of some, if not all of these areas, and it’s essential that you can lead complex projects through influence as well as direct line management to maintain momentum across different delivery mechanisms. Effective relationships and partnerships across the town and beyond will be key in consolidating the Reading offer to deliver ‘spade-ready’ schemes and secure the funding to make things happen.
