Property Support Officer

Preston is a vibrant and thriving city located at the heart of Lancashire.

Having recently been recognised as the UK’s most improved city, Preston enjoys first class transport connectivity on the west coast mainline for rail and is linked to four major motorways including the M6. The city also has good access to superb greenspace including a number of historic parks, the Forest of Bowland and the Lake District with the Fylde coast on its doorstep.

Preston as a city has exciting plans at its heart including the new leisure development, Animate. To help deliver the council’s investment and development ambitions, we need to make effective use of land and buildings, maximising receipts from the £40M+ property investment portfolio.

We are looking for an individual to join the Council’s Investment Property team. Direct experience isn’t essential, but you should be able to adapt to using software such as GIS and financial software (in our case Civica), as well as provide invaluable support to a team of chartered surveyors. 

This will include updating and adding records to the property system, interrogation of electronic filing, provision of credit checks and supply of legal agreements from software or Land Registry, as well as collation of data for performance management.

In addition, you will be supported to take on the management of some of the smaller assets within the council’s property portfolio, which include the letting of garages and small industrial units.

We are a small team and your role will be integral to its collective success. So, if you’re looking to develop your administration and / technical skills within a dynamic environment then I would encourage you to apply for this position. Full support through any training that would be required to develop and improve your skills will be provided.

As an employer we like to thank our employees for their hard work and commitment by giving them the opportunity to access a range of employee benefits including;

  • Flexible and hybrid working
  • A minimum of 30 days’ annual leave plus bank holidays
  • Family friendly policies and access to an Employee Assistance Programme
  • Local Government Pension Scheme, AVC’s, life assurance scheme
  • Free parking plus cycle to work scheme and discounted bus and rail fares.

If you have any questions or would like an informal discussion, then please contact Marie Percival on 01772 906750 or m.percival@preston.gov.uk
