HAYS are delighted to be working in partnership with the council to present an exciting new permanent opportunity for a Senior Estates Surveyor.

Your new role
As an Estates Surveyor, you will be an integral part of a team managing a diverse property portfolio which includes 350 commercial properties and 400 other assets including a town hall, community centre, moorings, and parks. As part of this role, you'll lead on leasing transactions as well as other individual projects undertaking direct negotiations with tenants, drafting and agreeing heads of terms and also liaising and dealing with external leasing agents.
