A business to make your own! North London
My client is a north London based, award winning independent property consultancy specialising in Agency, Lettings and Block Management.
With an ever growing, vibrant Lettings and Sales business, the block management department has taken a bit of a back seat of late despite being profitable with plenty of scope for expansion.
As a result, the directors have recognised the need to recruit a competent block manager, a self- starter keen to make the business their own, who will come in and revitalise not only the existing portfolio (200 units) but also develop a number of recent enquires and leads as they see fit (although this ISNT a BDM role so EXISTING stock always takes priority!).
Working alongside the directors and a part time service charge accountant (who could go full time as the portfolio grows), the successful property manager will set budgets, review maintenance plans, manage/review contractors, correspond/meet with residents and generally oversee the estates as they see fit.
Whilst this ISNT a business development role, there are decent incentives for those who wish to grow the business beyond what it is already, including a share of net profit for new and existing blocks under management, so it really would suit an ambitious Property Manager keen to make something their own without the financial risks.
Ultimately the successful Block Manager will have free reign but still receive support as required, enabling them to head a team shaped in their image.
If you’re ambitious but hindered by structure or feel your present employer/portfolio is unlikely to change regardless of your input then this opportunity really could be the fresh (creative) challenge you seek.
Basic salary is circa £35k with a bonus scheme based on a generous percentage of net profit (on existing AND any new business) and a package to follow as the department takes shape.
