About the role
East Sussex County Council is proud of the services it delivers, no more so than in recent times when the efforts of our colleagues have been extraordinary. In a county well known for its outstanding natural beauty and quality of life, we work successfully with a wide range of stakeholders to deliver the core services that so many of our residents rely on. Our ethos of continuous improvement over the years has seen many of our services judged as good or outstanding.
The property estate and the capital programme provide critical infrastructure that supports all our colleagues to deliver our strategic priorities. Until recently, Property Services has been delivered through a shared service model. The decision to bring it back ‘in house’ has now created a great opportunity for a property leader to review the interim arrangements that are currently in place and establish a new customer-centric vision, strategy, organisational model and service structure.
A property and facilities management professional, your experience will demonstrate both strategic thinking and tactical implementation, especially at a time when we are fundamentally questioning how we use and occupy our places of work. It’s likely that you will have worked in a publicly funded environment, or alongside as a close partner. Your track record of leading change will equip you to position Property Services as a true, collaborative partner delivering a high quality customer experience.
