As well as being responsible for revitalising Britain’s railway, Network Rail is also one of the largest property owners in the UK. Indeed, property is at the heart of delivering our ambition to provide a safe, reliable and efficient railway fit for the 21st century. Our portfolio covers workspaces, town planning, land strategy, and driving commercial income from retail, business space and developments in conjunction with commercial partners.
As a Senior Surveyor you will manage acquisitions of land, drive forward our land based accommodation strategy, or you could be involved in our growing “payables” portfolio. You’ll be based in our luxurious offices in the heart of Birmingham.
There’ll be plenty of opportunity to grow in this role and you will certainly develop your knowledge with the opportunity to work on Compulsory Purchase acquisitions. When it comes to this kind of work we like to think we didn’t read the book we wrote it!
Educated to degree level or equivalent and MRICS qualified, you will have broad General Practice surveying experience and have managed complex property transactions. Excellent communication, presentation and influencing skills are key, including a proven ability to negotiate effectively at senior level. We’ll also be looking for an impressive track record of successful managing a variety of stakeholders, while an understanding of compulsory purchase issues. Rail industry and its legislation, would also be useful.
