Job Description

Are you ready to take the next step in your career with a leading regional property company? Beach Baker is delighted to partner with an esteemed firm to recruit a dynamic Asset Manager for their Bristol office. This is a unique opportunity to join a dedicated team that is committed to improving returns and driving asset growth through strategic management and development of a diverse commercial portfolio.

Why This Role Stands Out:

  • Diverse Portfolio: Manage a rich mix of multi-let and single-let industrial estates, out-of-town retail parks, high street retail (including convenience stores, food retail), and regional shopping centres.
  • Strategic Impact: Play a crucial role in shaping the strategic direction and hands-on management of the portfolio, driving value through innovative asset management strategies.
  • In-House Collaboration: Work closely with in-house Property Managers, Facilities Managers, and support teams to deliver exceptional service and maintain high tenant satisfaction.
  • Professional Growth: Enhance your skills and career prospects by managing significant projects and contributing to the firm's overall success.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lease Consultancy: Expertly handle lease re-gearing, renewals, and rent reviews to optimise portfolio performance.
  • Void Property Management: Spearhead marketing and negotiate new lease terms for vacant properties, minimising downtime and maximising revenue.
  • Capital Works Projects: Oversee major refurbishments, manage dilapidations, and execute other capital works projects to enhance asset value.
  • Value Addition: Identify and capitalise on opportunities to add value, including undertaking in-house development appraisals.
  • Asset Repositioning: Strategically refurbish and redevelop assets to align with market demands and increase profitability.
  • Tenant Relations: Build and maintain strong relationships with tenants, ensuring high levels of satisfaction and retention.
  • Collaborative Management: Partner with in-house teams on health and safety, day-to-day property management, tenant liaison, and estate maintenance.
  • Service Charge Management: Work with the accounts team to manage service charge budgets and expenditures effectively.
  • Performance Reporting: Prepare and present insightful quarterly performance reports to the Board of Directors, highlighting achievements and strategic plans.

What We're Looking For:

  1. Degree in Real Estate: RICS accredited degree in Real Estate or similar.
  2. RICS Membership: Ideally 0-2 years PQE, with proven expertise in general practice.
  3. Experience: Background in a general practice discipline, or lease consultancy with a strong track record of success.
  4. Skills: Excellent interpersonal, organisational, and time management skills, with a keen commercial acumen.
  5. Mindset: A proactive, market-aware individual with the drive to succeed and contribute to a high-performing team.

What's In It For You:

  • Competitive Salary & Bonus: Enjoy a competitive salary plus car allowance with a discretionary bonus, reflecting your contributions and success.
  • Comprehensive Benefits: Benefit from enhanced private pension, private medical cover (BUPA), life assurance, and more.
  • Team Culture: Join a supportive and collaborative team environment, with regular social events.
  • Career Advancement: Opportunities for professional development and career progression within a growing independent firm.
