Careers in Business Services


Property

We carry out a wide variety of work, some behind the scenes, and some that’s very visible to the staff. Working with the public and helping people is one of the main aims of my role. What I love is the variety. No two days are the same.

Elaine, Business Support Officer


What is Property?

A job in our Property service provides the opportunity for individuals to work with services, partners and clients on a widespread property estate, including schools, office hubs, land and libraries.

But we're about so much more than buildings. Teamwork and strong ethics are at the heart of how we deliver services. We believe in collaboration and we value fresh perspectives.

Our services include:

  • providing new schools and school extensions
  • maintaining assets
  • facilities management service
  • carbon reduction initiatives
  • managing contracts and billing for the Council and other public sector bodies.

We encourage staff apprenticeships and have successfully supported staff to gain qualifications and enhance their work experience. This includes releasing staff from their day job to study while they work.

What staff say about working in Business Services

Veronique Round

Getting an email in the morning saying, ‘I just wanted to let you know we got the £500 from the Lottery to do this project’ really makes my day." Veronique, External Funding Manager
Nev Round
"You feel like you’re doing something, not just for the people you’re fixing the computer for, but for the service they’re providing for people in the county." Nev, Service Hub User Experience Manager
