About the team

Hear from Bill Hunt, Deputy Chief Executive of Warwick District Council, on the opportunities available in our Asset Management team.

Our team uses its considerable expertise to find creative and cost effective solutions for the Council’s existing assets, evaluating the need for redevelopment, or renovations. It also delivers the maintenance and upgrading programme of the Council’s housing stock. In addition, it investigates opportunities to acquire new assets which will not only enhance the Council’s extensive portfolio but will support our vision of being a great place to live, work and visit. 

We now want to recruit more high achievers and experts to add to those already in our Asset Management team to ensure the continuing development and implementation of our Asset Management Strategy.  Focusing on delivering the highest levels of service to clients, embracing and managing change, we are adept at using technology and insight to drive efficiencies into the Housing Investment Programme, and we adopt an enterprising approach to initiatives and projects which we manage across the council.

We plan to move in 2020 to new, state of the art premises in the centre of the historic town of Leamington and the team will play a key role in driving asset management within the district.

Our new team presents a range of job opportunities across three areas:

  1. Management
  2. Support
  3. Specialist roles

If you are ready for a major new challenge, helping us to take forward our Asset Management vision, then this may be just the opportunity that you have been looking for.
