The Council is embarking on a new project to centralise and/ or join up land and property asset data across the organisation to support strategic decision making and reporting. The project focuses on the use of centralised data to support organisational strategic decisions and will also strengthen the ability to monitor and report on building safety and compliance across the estate.

This project will require subject matter expertise and a wide-ranging skill set to deliver a successful outcome: through the key stages of consultation, options appraisal, procurement, implementation and operational handover. The Council is seeking to recruit a high calibre individual with knowledge and experience of property data and asset management systems and a proven track record of leading and successfully delivering projects in large and complex organisations.

This is an opportunity to be involved in a project to help shape the Council’s strategy for property asset management data and associated systems. The assignment is initially advertised to the end of the financial year but the project, if successful and approved to move forward at respective project gateways, is expected to have a delivery lifespan of approximately 24-36 months.

It is essential that candidates have knowledge of Corporate property asset management databases and systems. Ideally they will have experience of both Corporate/ General Fund and Housing (but not exclusively Housing data and asset management).

Full JD and Person Specification supplied.

The Council will consider paying a rate higher than that at which the post has been graded and advertised in order to attract candidates that are appropriately qualified and experienced. Suppliers are therefore asked to submit candidates based on suitability for the post and not confined by the advertised rate.

• Promote and develop a positive and collaborative approach to the use of property asset management systems and integrated data to support good asset management practice within Hackney Council.

• Proven experience in multi-site property asset management and the wider property/ construction industry.
• Ability to demonstrate working knowledge of roles and responsibilities of property professionals within a multi-disciplinary property team operating within a large complex organisation such as a council.

• Proven experience of adding value and demonstrating credibility (Local or Central Government preferable).
• Proven experience of building effective working relationships with managers and external organisations.
