Cobalt is representing an historic landlord as they seek to hire an Assistant Estate Manager for a mixed-use development in South Kensington & Chelsea. This bustling portfolio boasts unique well-known London properties in addition to a mixture of retail, commercial office, and residential spaces giving this role plenty of variety - whilst the public realm regularly plays hosts to various events throughout the year, making boredom practically impossible within the role!

In addition, you'll work hand in glove with the Estate Manager who is specifically seeking someone who can they mentor and develop within the role, giving you plenty of exposure to every aspect of the estate management role from a client-side perspective. Therefore this opportunity also represents a platform for your future progression within Facilities & Estate management as an industry.

Key responsibilities will include:

  • Alongside your line manager, taking regular inspections and site-walkthroughs within the estate;

  • Assisting with setting and managing service charge budgets;

  • Helping to ensure the building remains fully compliant with UK H&S legislation, whilst assisting with the continued drive towards improving sustainability within the estate;

  • Providing key support in ensuring the estate and buildings are maintained to the highest standard, getting involved with planned and reactive maintenance, in additions to CAPEX projects as they arise;

  • As part of the above, you will assist with managing contractors for hard services, in addition to soft service suppliers too - initially providing support but taking on autonomy for set services when practically possible;

  • The estate regularly hosts a variety of events and a key part of this role will be helping to ensure these run smoothly - managing risk and ensuring the estate is fit for the purpose of these events as they arise;

  • Building lasting professional relationships with key stakeholders, chief amongst them tenants - helping to provide a first-class facilities management service for them.

  • Due to this events happening on site, this role will require every other Saturday to be worked, with time given off in lieu during the week.

Our client is looking for someone proactive, personable, and professional, who is keen to challenge themselves and develop within the field of estate management - whether as an established Assistant FM looking to refine their experience before taking the next step, or as someone stepping up into the role for the first time.

However, prior experience working for a property company is essential, whilst previous experience on a mixed-use portfolio/estate, or large-scale asset would be highly desirable. An IOSH qualification would be highly desirable and for the top-end of the salary bracket it would be essential.
