About Our Client
Our client, the UK's leading retirement builder, has been providing specialist retirement property for over 30 years and has built a reputation for customer service and satisfaction that is the envy of the house building industry.
It makes sense therefore to ensure this unrivalled service is carried through to the management of the developments, hence a Management Service has been set up to manage all the new Retirement Living developments. The focus is to 'enhance the quality of people's lives in retirement' by providing the best possible 'lifestyle' and estate management services.

About The Role
As an Area Manager within the Management Services team, you will have management responsibility for House Managers based at each development and will oversee the delivery of lifestyle and estate management services to all Assisted and Retirement Living developments.
Working closely with regional teams, you will deliver a seamless service to all homeowners ensuring that you promote core values and business philosophy at all times; managing and overseeing the national facilities contracts and reviewing service standards and costs to budgets.
In addition to these duties, you will produce monthly management reports and formally report to homeowners with account updates and budgets for each financial year.

You must keep up to date with relevant legislation, in particular employment and health & safety, and be responsible for the recruitment and induction of House Managers for each development.

About You
Our client is looking for a self-motivated individual who is happy to work independently and as part of a team. You will have a positive 'can do' attitude, excellent organisational and communication skills and a good level of IT.
With an excellent educational background, to degree level, you will have previous 'hands-on' residential property management experience (this is essential to be successful in this role), ideally within a similar role coupled with an understanding of budgets and profit / loss accounts.

In addition to an attractive salary, benefits include a mobile phone, company car, pension plan and life assurance. Our client also offers excellent training and coaching.

Hours of Work
9.00 am - 5.30 pm Monday to Thursday and 9.00 am - 5.00 pm Friday.
The successful candidate will be required to undertake significant travel across the region that will involve working outside normal business hours at times and be 'on call'.
