Our new Head of Property will play a crucial role in how we manage, develop and rationalise our extensive land and property holdings in a sustainable and environmentally responsible way.  This will involve leading our teams of property professionals and also working with whole Council and external partners to deliver our property and asset strategies.  Our plans for our portfolio and  property function are ambitious and far-reaching. We are now looking for the right individual   who can provide the leadership to drive these ambitions forward and make a difference for the residents of Cornwall. 

As a member of the Council’s Extended Leadership Team, our Head of Property will also be part of the transformation of the organisation. These are exciting times at Cornwall Council because we are fundamentally changing how we do business, how we work and how we collaborate internally and externally to make Cornwall an even better place to live and work.   Our Head of Property is key in delivering this modernisation agenda – in which delivering our property strategy is a key component.

Our property portfolio covers operational, commercial and non-operational buildings and land assets.  It is a large and diverse estate that is equivalent to a book value of £2bn  and covers 3% of Cornwall.  It  is also unique as it includes assets as diverse as farms, an airport (including the recently announced spaceport) and numerous heritage and cultural assets.


We are looking for a talented, ambitious and dedicated individual whose leadership skills, values, tenacity and drive is as important as professional background. You will have significant experience in setting the direction for both commercial and operational property portfolios. You will be able to demonstrate innovation and a dynamic approach as well as build and sustain good relationships with external suppliers and multiple stakeholders. Alongside this you will be an effective leader with experience in successfully managing change, including reforming Property functions and delivering large scale asset rationalisation programmes.

In return, we offer a range of excellent benefits including final salary pension and flexible working arrangements, a supportive and empowering working environment and the opportunity to live and work in one of most beautiful parts of the UK.
