Cambridgeshire County Council is looking for a rural surveyor with experience in estate management to manage Cambridgeshire County Council’s 33,000 acre rural estate, the largest of its kind in England and Wales, with over 200 rural businesses and close to a £5m rent roll.

The role will present the successful candidate with an interesting and challenging opportunity to enhance professional experience and take the lead in specialist areas. The successful candidate will work both autonomously and as part of an established team delivering day to day management of the rural property portfolio. You will be involved with a wide variety of professional and management work including:

• All aspects of management of a portfolio of agricultural property such as landlord and tenant matters, including rent reviews and lease renewals, and farm and rural estate agency.
• Professional work - strategy reviews, environmental projects, renewable energy schemes, business plans to identify capital investment requirements, utility schemes and diversification projects
• Providing focussed advice to a wide range of stakeholders – tenants, Council members and the public – in a timely manner.

The ideal candidate will have a degree level education in a relevant land use discipline and will be MRICS qualified, ideally with 3 years post qualification experience in the property industry, with some experience of estate management and an interest in emerging environmental schemes and natural capital projects, such as Biodiversity Net Gain, carbon management and ELMS.

The successful candidate can expect a salary in the region of £40,000, for someone of the right experience, with annual performance reviews. You will benefit from generous annual holidays, an excellent pension scheme, assistance with cost of relocation of up to £4,000 (subject to qualifying criteria), family friendly policies and plenty of opportunities for training and career progression. The role will offer the flexibility to have a balance between home working and our new offices in Alconbury. It is noteworthy that Cambridgeshire County Council has not placed any of its rural or commercial surveyors on furlough during the Covid pandemic
