Welcome letter from Ron Walton

Thank you for your interest in Align Property Partners. Align senior roles engineers.

As the Managing Director, I am very proud of the achievements of the organisation to date and I am very excited about its’ future prospects. Align has grown substantially since its’ inception in 2015 and we have a large volume of high profile projects in the pipeline, so these roles represent a fantastic opportunity to join us as we seek to embark on the next phase of our exciting growth plans.

We are at a critical stage in our development, poised for significant future growth, and so these senior roles will provide you with considerable autonomy to lead others and enable you to make critical decisions at a strategic level. We are one of the largest multi disciplinary organisations in the north of England and we provide a huge range of “one stop shop” design, consultancy and engineering solutions to a wide range of clients right across the public and private sector. The multi disciplinary team at Align includes Architects, Building Surveyors, Project Managers, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, Quantity Surveyors, and Property Advisors, as well as Structural Engineers.

Our size means that you will have the ability to play an important role in the running and development of the organisation. You will not feel like a small cog in a big wheel here – in fact, as Technical Director you will report directly to myself as Managing Director and operate at Board level. At Associate and Principal level you will enjoy similar strategic autonomy to run your own business and manage your own teams.

We have bases right across the North of England, and with hybrid working this means you can enjoy a genuine work/ life balance whilst enjoying a cutting edge career with fantastic prospects.

In addition, Align is wholly owned by North Yorkshire Council and so provides a highly stable foundation from which to build your career – regardless of the ups and downs of the economic climate.

Background of Align and Relationship with North Yorkshire Council

Align Property Partners started trading in November 2015 and is a Teckal company, wholly owned by North Yorkshire Council and forms part of the wider commercial group of companies known as the Brierley Group. North Yorkshire Council is a little different to what some might view as a typical public sector organisation – it is commercially focussed and has multiple successful commercial trading businesses already which means that commercial acumen and success will thrive in this context. You will not be restricted by public sector policy.

Being Teckal compliant allows Align’s shareholders to award contracts directly without procurement. The main benefit of this arrangement is that it ensures a long term, ethical and stable business, with unrivalled potential for commercial growth. This means that Align is in a rather unique position and can deliver high quality services whilst seeking out commercial opportunities to provide shareholder value and being wholly owned by North Yorkshire Council ensures stability in what can sometimes be a volatile market.

Align was established in 2015 and staff numbers have tripled since then, with a total of more than 105 to date. We provide a huge range of “one stop shop” design, consultancy and engineering solutions to clients across the public sector including North Yorkshire Council, as well as other local authorities based right across the northern region including Middlesbrough, Stockton, North Tyneside, Durham, Darlington, Barnsley, North Lincolnshire, Hull, Cumbria, St. Helens, Bury and Wigan.

It is also an exciting time as in April 2023 eight district, borough and county councils merged together to form the new North Yorkshire Council. This provides a platform to agree a devolution deal for York and North Yorkshire which could potentially unlock around £2.4bn of investment over 30 years, with a focus on improving the economic prosperity and future long-term opportunities for all residents. This presents a great opportunity for Align too.

We are a strong performing company with stable leadership team. We have talented teams providing the platform to have a fulfilling, challenging and successful career in a beautiful and accessible region.


Get in touch

If these interesting and unique roles sound appealing, I would very much like to hear from you. I am confident that the roles will provide an excellent platform for ambitious individuals as well as the opportunity to be part of an innovative, forward thinking team.

If you have a Degree in Civil Engineering (or equivalent) with 5 years+ Structural Engineering post-qualification experience or senior experience up to Head of Service/ Director level, please get in touch so that we can tell you a little but more about what we do.

Please liaise with our recruitment partners at The Resourcing Solution in the first instance. If you like the sound of what we do I would be delighted to meet with you for a coffee – I think you will be pleasantly surprised by what you hear.

Thank you and I look forward to receiving your application.
