Manchester
Our client is a well established property development and management company, with its head office in central Manchester. They have been instrumental in the redevelopment of some of the city's key commercial, leisure and residential areas over the past 20 years. Due to expansion, they now wish to recruit an experienced Operations professional whose primary focus will be to free up the Directors to focus on strategic matters and group development. This is a brand new role and as such offers the successful individual the opportunity to handle a broad range of duties combined with the ability to fashion the role as necessary. Key duties will, amongst other things, involve:
Property management
Liaison with third parties including lettings agents, managing agents, maintenance providers and facilities management companies
Overseeing health and safety and fire safety
Managing the buildings in the context of the needs of the occupants
Managing tenancy agreements
Acting as part of the senior management team in giving input into the future strategic development of the asset base
To be successful in this role, you will ideally have a proven track record of managing a property portfolio with all the associated duties and responsibilities. This could be from your role as an architect, a surveyor, a managing agent or any number of similar roles. The key to success will be your ability to operate in a small focussed team environment, with a hands on approach and the credibility and gravitas to be able to command respect from all those with whom you connect. You will form part of the senior management team and as such, you will need to be commercial, focussed, results oriented, down to earth, hands on, capable and ambitious. You will possess well developed communications skills combined with a keen attention to detail and the ability to "see a job through to successful completion" which will involve extensive management of relationships to achieve the desired results. Excellent future prospects exist for the candidate who wishes to play a key part in the future success of this inspirational company.
