Please send us a STAND OUT cover letter and a short video (less than 60 seconds) with your application, detailing what you can bring to this role and our Lettings Team, and why we’d be mad not to hire you (applications without covering letters will not be considered).

In 2022 (and beyond), Umega will be placing a strong focus on convenience and speed in the services we provide to our customers.  We’re a growing business with an exciting road ahead of us. Over the last 15 years, we’ve become one of the biggest agencies in Scotland and one of the top rated in the UK. We’re not your average property business.  We do things differently; we work 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 customers 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. 

We’re looking for an individual who is eager to work in a fast-paced, lively environment, can bring energy and enthusiasm to work every day and who is willing to turn their hand to whatever comes their way.  You should be comfortable working in a fast-moving organisation, be exceptionally confident in managing your own time and schedule whilst working out of the office, be familiar with Edinburgh city geography and have a keen eye for detail with a creative flair.

Our Property Marketing Team are focused on securing tenancies for our properties which are on the market. They have their finger on the pulse when it comes to the market dynamics, and they take pride in ensuring our properties are rented quickly to good tenants. This team works in one of the busiest areas of our business, so speed and responsiveness are key, as is the ability to think on your feet, prioritise, and act quickly. Of course, it helps if you love property too! 

This role will primarily be focused on visiting our properties across Edinburgh and the Lothians, supporting our Property Marketing Team by creating marketing material for our portfolio (engaging descriptions, eye-catching photos, 360 tours and floorplans). Your job is to make sure our properties are presented brilliantly so they stand out in the market and attract fantastic tenants, so your attention to detail is important as you’ll need to do some basic property staging, and have a flair for showcasing our properties in their best light. Photography/videography experience is not essential, as our fantastic Giraffe360 cameras do the hard part there, but would definitely be an asset in this role. 

You’ll also be expected to support our Property Marketing Team with other mobile work from time to time (this may include viewings, property checks, or having keys cut and tested as a couple of examples). You’ll be responsible for our property pipeline and working closely with our Lettings Negotiators to push properties to the market as quickly, efficiently and exquisitely as possible. 

Apply if you:

  • Have a keen eye for detail, and love using your creative spark. 
  • Have solid experience managing your own workload while largely working remotely.
  • Are a proactive problem-solver who thrives in a fast-paced dynamic. 
  • Are confident working with a range of technology and have the ability to pick up systems and processes quickly. 
  • Love company culture. At Umega it’s our service and our culture that sets us apart. We truly believe in all our staff, and we ensure they are well equipped, supported, trained and developed to succeed in the heart of our business.
  • Have a strong passion to grow, learn, and continuously improve.
  • Hold a full UK Driving Licence – this is essential.
