IPSERV is part of the Ipswich Borough Council Group of Companies, alongside Ipswich Borough Assets, Handford Homes and Ipswich Buses. Part of IPSERV’s role is to provide professional services to Ipswich Borough Assets and Handford Homes, as well as their subsidiaries, the Council and other clients.
IPSERV is recruiting to three key roles in the Property Directorate to supply professional services to Ipswich Borough Assets, Handford Homes and others. These exciting roles will play an integral part in the ongoing development of the Council’s commercial activity through its companies – there really isn’t a better time to join this vibrant and ambitious group of companies which have already built a £100m commercial property portfolio in just three years and developed a 500 unit housebuilding pipeline.
Ipswich Borough Assets
Ipswich Borough Assets (IBA) owns a mixed commercial property portfolio in the Ipswich area. Its holdings span the industrial, office and retail sectors and are valued at around £100m. To date, this ambitious company has focused on investment rather than developing but 2020 will see it move into development as well as it secures options on development land and begins to deliver plans to meet the needs of its current and potential clients.
Handford Homes is the Council’s housebuilding arm and develops housing in and outside the borough boundary. Its pipeline currently spans some 500 potential units with sites at different stages in their development. Its first development, of 60 dwellings on Old Norwich Road in Ipswich is due to be completed in July 2020, with some 40 other dwellings at the planning stage, and another 400 at the feasibility / viability / design stage. Handford Homes subsidiary, Handford Lettings will begin to manage a portfolio of residential rental properties this summer with ambitious plans to provide a high quality lettings service in Ipswich and beyond.
