Job Description

An excellent opportunity has arisen within this well-established professional property practice. They are actively involved in general professional work, surveying, residential and commercial property management, block management, as well as areas such as party wall, lease enfranchisement, lease extension valuation, general property valuation, expert witness, etc. This business has an excellent reputation and has grown entirely on recommendations over the years.

Due to the ongoing success of the business, a new vacancy has been created for a Block Manager. The portfolio is currently entirely block management, so someone with direct experience in this field is essential, and many of the managed blocks have been with this company for a great number of years. Whilst qualifications would be beneficial, they are not essential as the company will give the successful candidate the facility to gain a qualification, with ARMA being ideal.

With the office based in Putney, and the majority of the company’s property portfolio based in, or very close to, London SW15 there is not very much travel involved.

The successful candidate will be responsible for day to day running of the portfolio, dealing with repairs and breakdowns, insurance, obtaining work schedules, overseeing works and signing off completed jobs, with large contracts being checked by a qualified surveyor. There will also be residents meetings to attend, these are usually annual, and finish between 8pm and 9 pm. If a meeting is attended, then time off in lieu would be organised to compensate.

The salary on offer will initially be in the region of £30,000 – £35,000, though this may be negotiable depending on the level of expertise and experience of the individual. However, there will be considerable scope to increase the earnings as experience is gained. Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 6.00pm.
