Job Posted: 2016-11-08 08 November 2016 Closing date for applications: 08 January 2017
This is an excellent career opportunity for someone looking to commence a career in estate agency in central London, and more specifically in residential lettings. The company is an independent firm of chartered surveyors, incorporating successful sales, lettings and property management departments.
Based in Pimlico, they predominantly cover the SW1 postcode and as a consequence knowledge of this area would be helpful, but is by no means essential. This is a busy office in an exclusive part of the capital so the ideal candidate will need to have the ability to handle high net worth individuals, and the customer services skills suited to the area and position.
Whilst companies usually look to recruit experienced lettings negotiators, this firm would actually prefer to employ someone with no previous property experience as they would like to train the successful candidate from scratch. However, it would be beneficial if you have previously worked in a competitive sales environment or at least a customer facing environment. You will also need to have excellent communication and presentation skills, and be comfortable dealing with clientele renting in Prime Central London.
The role will include the following duties:
- Registering potential tenants on the phone and in person
- Qualifying their renting position and their requirements
- Arranging and accompanying viewings
- Gaining feedback from these viewings
- Negotiating offers
- Communicating with, and feeding back to landlords
- General office administration
- Telephone sales
This position will come with a basic salary in the region of £15,000 and pool commission giving realistic first year earnings of circa £30,000-£40,000. The company will also provide a guaranteed pro rata draw of £20,000 for the first three months.
The office hours are Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 6.30pm, and Saturdays from 9.00am to 1.00pm. You will be expected to work one in three Saturdays.
