You will need bags of well-founded inner confidence to hold your own in front of Investment Managers and Developers. You will be emotionally intelligent to instinctively read when people want more or less information, credible to present options and pricing, as well as able to reason which proposals represent value for money and why
What you will be doing
For new assets: anything and everything that is necessary to get new multi-million pound buildings ready for occupation, getting the developer off site, units accepted and ready for our lettings teams who in turn need to get the flats let and residents moved in. You will also support decision making throughout the development lifecycle with sustainability, durability and ease of use in mind as you source, score and evaluate suppliers and check off fire safety quality assurance documentation.
For lease up: using data analytics you will need to be able to predict demand, understand the market saturation levels and the likely customer demographic: together these will dictate the right marketing strategy. There are multiple tasks to trigger and numerous overlapping outcomes to track. You will have to organise marketing assets, proof read posts, authorise social media and arranging video how to guides for the site staff and residents.
For stabilised assets: there are contracts to negotiate, cause and affect testing to arrange and attend, fire QA to check off, spares lists to maintain, assets to tag and building compliance to document too. As we further the ESG agenda there will be upgrade programmes to scope, tender, oversee and deliver and new accreditations to apply for as we follow the holy grail to net zero.
Compliance and reporting: daily upward reporting is essential so the team know where the things you are responsible for are at. You will need to get your head around the jargon such as GAV, Yield and IRR and that’s where your excel skills come in.

Ringley is a multi-award winning multi-practice property team based in Camden Town, Manchester and Cardiff Bay comprising Chartered Surveyors, Engineers, Solicitors, Valuers, PropTech, Lettings, Block Management and Final Accounts and staff on site throughout the UK.

Ringley's customer focus sets a benchmark in the industry; we support people who live in communal environments: leaseholders in new build homes, owners who have bought their freehold and those in the private rented sector.
All our teams whether they are Relationship Managers, Property Managers, Legal Officers or Chartered Accountants have to be creative problem solvers to deliver solutions to those who come to us for advice.
In property it is all about helping owners understand their block accounts, trace repairs, plan for decorations, buy the freehold, extend their lease as well as day-to-day what is theirs to repair and what will be covered by the service charge.. At Ringley each Leasehold Block Portfolio Manager is supported by their own Legal Officer and Final Accounts Officer and is supported by our Treasury and Customer Support Teams.
Right from the start we have always looked to recruit people who we could imagine giving up their time to visit granny. To us, this meant respect, listening and learning. We later wrote these up as our core values and in 2010 we introduced a 'money back guarantee'.
