If your customer service skills are out of this world then read on – we might just have the job for you!
We’re looking for a positive, people person who loves building rapport and meeting a variety of people on a daily basis. If you can reach for the stars while keeping your feet on the ground and your head in the game then read on for more info about this fantastic opportunity to join Edinburgh’s most exciting letting agent! We’re not your average letting business. We do things differently, we work hard and we put our landlords and tenants at the centre of our universe.
This role sits within our New Business Team who bring on a high volume of properties each month. You will be fully responsible for the marketing activity for new business properties – this includes booking and carrying out viewings, providing quality feedback to landlords, managing rental offers and negotiating tenancies between landlords and potential tenants. You will work closely with our New Business Coordinators to ensure our new landlords get the best possible start to their relationship with Umega. You’ll also work with our team of Letting Administrators who will process applications and references for your lets. You will be fully accountable for “time to let” measures for properties in your care during the marketing period, therefore you’ll be expected to keep on top of your workload, monitor interest and feedback for your properties, manage expectations of landlords, tenants and colleagues and make sound decisions about the best course of action for your properties. You’ll need to be able to work well with colleagues in other teams when required to get properties over the line. This might be our New Business relationship managers, the other Letting Negotiators or our in-house Maintenance Team – whatever you think is required for a successful landlord and tenant negotiation.
From time to time you may be required to work outside of normal office hours.
