Three Rivers District Council is an ambitious and innovative local public sector organisation. Located in Rickmansworth, South Hertfordshire, we are just a train ride from central London and just inside the M25. 

With a population of 86,000, our district combines the best of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a thriving urban landscape with award-winning leisure facilities and great access to London Underground and Overground Stations.

You’ll be playing a vital role in maintaining our profitability as a council and ensuring we provide outstanding property and asset management services. 

Your Role 
As our Property and Asset Manager, you will be tasked with overseeing our Asset and Property Management Team operating within the Property Department.
