  • Interim Estates Surveyor

    West Midlands - £280 - £300 per day

    Contract Type: Temporary

    SHARE THIS JOB

    "I miss meeting people, but I can't go into work every day"

    "Why do I have to go in everyday?"

    Does this sound like something you've been thinking? I may have the perfect opportunity for you.

    Since Covid, the world is finally going back to normal…but one thing that thankfully isn't changing too much is working arrangements.

    I'm working with a Council in the West Midlands that's offering hybrid working for an Interim Estates Surveyor. They are only a short train journey away from the UK's second largest city, which also won the UK City of Culture award in 2021.

    You'd only have to go in 2 times a week, which means you can still work from the comfort of your own home most of the time.

    Do you have experience working on commercial property portfolios for local authorities? Perfect! That's all they're looking for- experience! Qualifications aren't necessary here.

    Your time will be spent:

    • Arranging new leases/licenses
    • Carrying out renewals
    • Managing rent reviews
    • Meeting tenants if necessary
    • Undertaking basic valuations

    If this sounds like a role for you, or you'd like to find out more, contact me on 0203 976 1512

    Feel free to send your CV to nikita@park-avenue.co.uk but don't worry if it's not updated, we can work on this together.

    "I would like to work with an interesting and unique portfolio"

    "I wish I could expand my portfolio experience with something unique"

    "I like to work on projects which allows me to really make a difference"

    "I like to work on varied projects as opposed to the same tasks every day"

    Relate to any of these statements? If so, we have the perfect role for you!

    A Local Authority in Kent are creating a new team to restore the area to its former glory.

    If you have experience in Estates Surveying and Property Management, you can more than do the job!

    Don't worry if you are not MRICS qualified… Experience is the key within this role.

    To be specific, the role consists of:

    • Lettings
    • Lease Renewals
    • Rent Reviews
    • Space Utilisation
    • Acquisitions
    • Property Management

    Although you'll be required to go into the office twice a week, it is in the heart of the town (with one of Britain's most popular beaches a 5-minute walk away) so you could be having your lunch break admiring some of the best scenery in the UK.

    This role is a real mix, meaning you can broaden your skill set due to the rarity of coastal based portfolios - a brilliant opportunity to set yourself apart from the competition in future jobs!

    Give me a call on 0203 976 1514 or if you prefer, drop me an email at harvey@park-avenue.co.uk and we can discuss things further.
