As Head of Land & Property, you will oversee the strategic management and sustainable growth of the estate portfolio for South Hams and West Devon Councils.

As the council’s corporate property officer, you have a real chance to make a lasting impact in the lives of our residents, who are at the heart of everything we do.

Excellent communication and stakeholder engagement skills are crucial, as you will be working with a diverse range of partners on a day-to-day basis. A deep understanding of benchmarking alternative methods of delivery to ensure the best return on investments will be vital to success in this role.
  
Why join us?
