Property Maintenance Manager needed with Commercial and Residential experience, based in North Hertfordshire.
Your new company
A dynamic business is looking for an experienced Property Maintenance Manager to manage their portfolio of commercial and residential properties. With a vision to grow the business portfolio in the medium-term they are looking for someone to join who will develop certain areas of the role. You will join a small office, based in North Hertfordshire, where an "all hands-on deck" attitude is welcomed.
Your new role
You will work independently to manage a portfolio of 250 properties, made up of commercial (60%) and residential (40%) properties. You will be the point of contact for tenants for all general and maintenance queries and complaints and will be expected to manage the tenant's expectations and deal with them effectively.
You will liaise with all maintenance contractors, confirming that all work has been completed to a satisfactory standard, with reports to be made monthly to the Landlord. You will need to keep up-to-date on legislation for compliance purposes, meaning you will be expected to attend courses to ensure this. There are multiple databases (contractors, inspections, etc.) these will need to be maintained and kept up to date.
With the aim to expand, we are looking for someone with the initiative and business development drive to expand the role to gain commitment from more Landlords to manage their properties.
You will be working full time, 9am - 5:15pm, with a 4:30pm early finish on Fridays. Some flexibility might be required, as the need to meet a stakeholder out of hours is sometimes the case.
What you'll need to succeed
This role requires someone with property management experience, who has dealt with contractors and tenants, with knowledge of ASTs and commercial leases, as well as experience in reading and reviewing leases and other commercial legal documents.
You must have experience setting and reconciling Service Charge budgets in small offices. You will need to be a highly organised person as you will be responsible for all communication, administration and management of the properties. You will work independently and, therefore, will manage your own workload.
A flexible approach must be brought to the role due to the size of the company, roles vary, and you will need to assist other areas if needed. You will be responsible for covering the emergency phone during office shut down. You must have a driving license with your own car, as, though it might not be regular, you will be expected to visit properties when necessary.
