Are you a people person? Well so are we!

If you look out for people’s best interests, and show them you care by dealing with them in a warm and friendly manner. If you are creative, resourceful and can listen, consult and take on-board people’s opinions and needs then keep reading!

Role overview:

This is a hugely important role for our residents and for us.

You will enhance residents’ quality of life, by helping to create a warm and friendly environment and by taking as much hassle away from residents as possible, through the fulfilment of the Estate Management duties. 

What you’ll be doing:

On a day to day basis you’ll be:

Checking on residents to ensure their wellbeing.

Checking the building for any risks and hazards, liaising with contractors and organising remedial work when needed.

Keeping up to date with admin, including maintaining a diary of the development.

Encouraging a sense of community across the development – arranging coffee mornings and social events. 

You’ll also need to respond to occasional emergency situations.

This role does not require you to provide any personal care to our residents.
   

What’s in it for you:

-      23 days holiday (plus bank holidays), rising to 25 days after two years

-      5% Company contributory pension scheme

-      Life assurance

-      Discounted voluntary benefits on hundreds of named brands

-      Flexible benefits programme which includes Health Cash Plan and Childcare Vouchers

-      On the job training and continuing professional development

-      Employee Assistance Programme

What skills you’ll need.

Knowledge of managing property is not essential.

What is essential is a flair for building and maintaining excellent working relationships with people. It’s all about the people.


Solid administration skills will be needed as will experience of using computers. We’ll provide you with a handheld tablet which will make your life that little bit easier.
