The city:

Newcastle is a great city with a proud history and an exciting future. It boasts a wealth of natural assets and resources, available development sites, a skilled workforce and a quality of life envied across the rest of the UK.

As one of the UK’s fastest growing cities with thriving business sectors, Newcastle has an internationally renowned reputation as one of the UK’s leading cities in which to invest, develop or locate.

The council:

Newcastle City Council and its partners are the driving force behind this successful city, and alongside our net zero carbon emissions target that will help secure its future, we have a commitment to deliver inclusive, quality, consistent and value for money services that will benefit everyone in the city.

Working for Newcastle City Council isn’t like any other job. Everything we do has an impact on the lives of the people that live here, and our commitment, diligence and energy is second to none.

The Property Team:

At this exciting time, Newcastle City Council is looking to recruit two talented and well-connected property professionals to join its Property Team and help shape the future of the city.

The team plays a vital role in driving Newcastle’s economic growth and regeneration by using council assets to achieve its strategic objectives, in turn benefitting both local residents and visitors to the city. It manages an extensive mixed commercial portfolio of offices, industrial, retail, leisure and heritage assets that generates an annual income in excess of £12m pa with a capital value of circa £290m.

We have a proud record of success, playing an integral role working with our partners Newcastle University and Legal & General in the delivery of the internationally renowned Newcastle Helix - a landmark 24-acre hybrid city quarter, built for international tech and science businesses dedicated to helping us all live better lives. We also own, manage, and operate The Core, The Biosphere and the Lumen on the site.

Working with our Joint Venture partners PfP-igloo and Homes England, the team has helped deliver the award-winning Malings - a sustainable community consisting of 76 low energy, eco-friendly homes, and more recently completed Lower Steenberg Yard scheme in the Ouseburn.

We will be part of the team to bring forward the Malmo and Spillers Quay developments, and again working alongside PfP-igloo, we will deliver Phase 2 of the Stephenson Quarter. This Joint Venture, launched in 2020, will culminate in the development of the remaining plots, including several listed buildings, to provide a business space for creative, hi-tech and digital businesses, as well as exceptional city centre homes and public realm.

Working with key stakeholders and businesses, we are helping to deliver the £50m City Centre Transformation Programme, transforming this prestigious public realm to create a safer, greener and healthier space for all; and the intrinsically linked project to reawaken of the Grainger Market, following a successful bid to the Government’s Levelling Up Fund.
