Warwickshire County Council is an ambitious local authority that serves a growing population of over half a million people. We are clear about our priorities. Firstly, we want Warwickshire’s communities and individuals to be supported so they are safe, healthy and independent with priority focussed on the most vulnerable. Secondly, we want Warwickshire’s economy to be vibrant and supported by the right jobs, training, skills and infrastructure. We will seek to build our economy by attracting more investment, maximising business opportunities and encouraging job creation. To achieve these priorities we need to ensure our services are more efficient, integrated and that we make best possible use of our resources, new technologies and innovation.

The Team Leader is expected to be a leading source of advice on acquisition and disposal matters with a broad understanding of property valuation, investment and development appraisals, technical and legal due diligence, property taxation and land and property sales transactions.

With oversight of the delivery of the capital receipt programme, acquisition programme and investment proposals, the Team Leader will be responsible for the ongoing review of delivery and performance. Often working within a project environment, with a broad range of external consultants and internal staff, the Team Leader will deliver a range of studies and business cases with recommendations.

The successful candidate will be an experienced team leader with proven experience of formulating and implementing acquisition and disposal strategies.
