DIRECTOR FOR LUXURY PROPERTY MANAGEMENT COMPANY

An incredible opportunity has presented itself for an experienced Director to spearhead an award-winning London-based property management company. The company manages a prestigious portfolio in Prime Central London, and you will be responsible for the operational success of the property management offering across London and further afield. This will include the management and coordination of property services delivery, development and coordination of the current property management services, and utilising resources most effectively and efficiently across the portfolio. As a leading role in the company, you will also contribute to the agreed business development and marketing initiatives.

Their business’ looks after ultra-high net worth clients who expect the absolute best in service at all times – therefore a background in 5-star hospitality, or luxury private households and yachts, would be highly advantageous, although not essential.

Experience in a similar role within a luxury residential property market, with proven longevity and experience in project management and interior design, is essential for this role. You will be well versed in monitoring targets and managing budgets, as well as successfully leading and motivating teams. The ideal candidate must be highly organised, personable, proactive, confident, flexible, and have excellent communication skills – both verbal and written.

This is a remote role but with regular travel to ultra-high-net-worth clients’ properties in central London. Other travel further afield may be required also. You will be an excellent leader who will become part of the fabric of what they do, and manage a small team to support you in the day-to-day running of the company.
There will be financial incentives and share options based on performance. Additional benefits also include 25 days annual leave (plus your birthday), a competitive pension scheme, and the opportunity to progress within a growing business.

Usual working hours are 9am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday, with flexibility required over weekends when necessary.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES TO INCLUDE:
• Contribute to the development and implementation of the company-wide strategy
• Responsible for lead generation and the growth of the company
• Present and deliver the agreed annual targets for the property management service - and where possible exceed them (including profit and loss, budget and KPIs)
• Identify areas where improvement is required and implement change to achieve this
• Support the Managing Director and work closely with all members of the team to achieve agreed shared objectives
• Manage and authorise spend against agreed budgets
• Identify, evaluate, and propose opportunities for expanding and making profitable the property management service - this may include expanding services for existing clients
• Optimise profitability of property management services, identifying where efficiencies and savings can be realised and implementing change to achieve these
• Develop a network of reliable and loyal vetted housekeeping and property maintenance suppliers to meet current and future demand, and support portfolio growth
• Support and promote the company’s purpose, vision, and values, using them to underpin your working practice
• Work collaboratively, constructively, and courteously with your immediate team and colleagues across the business
• Adhere to all relevant workplace regulations, policies, and procedures, including those relating to equality and diversity, health and safety and data protection
• Undertake any other tasks that may reasonably be requested, including contributing to business projects

ESSENTIAL CRITERIA:
• Prior experience in a similar role, specifically in:
o Strategic development of property management services to generate maximum profit.
o Residential experience essential, interior design and project management experience advantageous as the portfolio will include refurbishment projects.
o Experience of growing and developing a business through growing a client base.
o Proven experience of successfully leading and motivating teams.
o Experience of successful contribution to companywide projects and initiatives, beyond your own area of responsibility
o Experience of setting and monitoring targets and managing budgets.
• A good standard of education, at least Degree level or equivalent - preferably in a business or a property-related discipline
• Excellent oral and written English, communication skills at all levels
• A full clean UK driving licence
