About us

Structure of the team

The team will be built up of four primary functions namely Property Management, Asset Management, Property Information and Support Services. It is important that you are a team player and have the ability and initiative to work alone. We are looking for people with enthusiasm and drive to meet targets and be part of council-wide initiatives that makes Salford such an exciting and interesting place to work.  We also need a team that wants to continually improve and develop, to be the best they can.

We are looking for a range of talent given the breadth of roles we have on offer as we build the new team! If you’re hardworking, passionate, love making a difference, enjoy giving back to the community and want to be part of a team where you can learn, grow and develop then we want to hear from you!
