Please send us a STAND OUT cover letter with your application, detailing what you can bring to this role and our Letting Team, and why we’d be mad not to hire you (applications without covering letters will not be considered).
Our busiest time of the year is fast-approaching, and we are on the lookout for a full-time, temporary position to support our wider Lettings & New Tenancy function over summer from May to September. We’re looking for a flexible, quick-thinker who is keen to dive right into the world of lettings. You’ll possess a great ability to quickly soak up information and put it into practice and you’ll thrive in a fast-paced environment built on strong values and great relationships. This is a fantastic opportunity to join our stellar LettingsTeam and gain practical skills and knowledge in property at Edinburgh’s most exciting letting agent! We won’t be asking you to make anyone tea or coffee!
We’re not your average letting business. We do things differently; we work consistently hard, but we have fun while we’re doing it. We act with integrity, we acknowledge our mistakes, we’re not afraid to try new things and we put our landlords and tenants at the heart of all we do. If you can get behind our ethos of Homes not Housing, People not Property, and truly embody this in all you do then you’re going to love it here.
Our team works in a hybrid setup with some office working, and some home-working. This role doesn’t require any mobile work, and you will be desk-based. It’s up to you how many times a week you work from our central office, but we would love to see you as much as possible!
This role sits in our Property Marketing Department as part of our New Tenancy Team, and has a particular focus on providing strong administrative support to our New Tenancy Coordinators.
You’ll be responsible for providing a strong and steady support to our NTC Team who deal with our tenants’ journey in securing their new home. Working closely with our NTC’s, you’ll carry out general administrative tasks on their behalf, and ensure that our tenants experience a swift and efficient onboarding process. You should be proficient in using tech, and be ready to pick up numerous internal systems quickly. Don’t worry – we’ll show you everything you need to know. You will be responsible for such things like booking inventories, adding tenant data to our systems, processing rental information, checking safety certificates and ensuring compliance, as well as general ‘aftercare’ for new tenancies.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR
- Exceptional customer service skills and an ability to forge relationships quickly
- A great team player, and a confident solo worker
- Excellent time management and prioritization
- Ability to multitask and thrive in a busy environment while maintaining a high level of attention to detail
- Confidence dealing with a wide variety of people and situations – thinking on your feet to solve problems quickly
- A self-starter with a proactive approach to your own development
- A full, clean UK driving license is also essential
