Job Description

At Surrey County Council, we believe that property can play a key role in unleashing improvements and transformation in our frontline services. And, we’re building a team with the skills, attitude and drive to deliver a step change in the performance of Surrey’s Land and Property team.

The Opportunity

These eight roles offer an opportunity for talented development managers to be part of an ambitious programme that will shape the future of Surrey and improve service delivery through transforming the council’s land and property assets. Successful applicants will be welcomed into an incredibly dynamic environment within a commercially minded council that is prepared to match ambition with investment.

As part of the Project Delivery team within the council’s Land & Property function, you will be responsible for developing and realising the council’s ambitious capital programme. This capital programme for the next five years represents a step change in the scale of delivery in the County, in terms of size, investment value and complexity. The projects within it will transform the delivery of Council services through improving or rationalising the existing estate and replacing those elements that cannot meet current or future needs. The investment needed is estimated to be up to £1bn over the next five years and individual projects will range in value from £1m to £50m.

About You

As a Development Manager in our newly formed Land and Property function, you will:

  • Lead major projects and reviews to enhance service delivery through the creation, redevelopment, refurbishment and/or repurposing of capital assets
  • Deliver technically complex programmes of work to achieve agreed outcome and objectives
  • Bring experience of developing project proposals from inception to procurement
  • Work in a highly collaborative way with service leaders to understand requirements, identify risks and develop appropriate and achievable solutions
  • Have excellent knowledge of relevant legislation, regulations and technical requirements
  • Have an aptitude for leading diverse, multidisciplinary teams to achieve challenging goals and targets
  • Have strong relationship skills and care about delivering high quality results for customers

In return, you’ll gain access to an incredibly diverse portfolio of projects of different values and requiring different solutions. A career-enhancing portfolio that we believe will broaden anyone’s experience.

If you’ve got the vision, confidence and expertise to help Surrey County Council to deliver these projects and realise our ambition, we’d love to hear from you. To find out more and for details of how to apply visit
