An opportunity exists for an Architectural Technologist to join the Council’s Corporate Asset and Facilities Management (CAFM) Service and make a positive impact towards delivering these goals.

It is also responsible for monitoring the Council’s buildings and drawing up programmes of work across the estate, ensuring that all planned, programmed and reactive repair works are delivered with a customer focus, on time and within budget. The team has oversight of the delivery of capital projects and significant building works, responsible for substantial capital budgets as well as an annual revenue budget of circa £2m.
