POSITIVE – Look for solutions & work together

OPEN – Ask for help & admit mistakes

This role involves being an important part of our busy and exciting letting business. We hold high standards and work in a way that means our clients love dealing with us. We run open-book management and ensure that everyone who works here receives a business education to support their career progression. An important aspect of this is using a share of profits to grow a staff-owned property portfolio that you will help grow, manage and benefit from. We are a company that is progressing fast and have big, game-changing plans for the future. This is a great opportunity to play an important part in this journey.
Here are some of the little things we do to make Umega a great place to work:
- Staff property fund – we set aside 20% of our profits to invest in Edinburgh buy-to-let property. Our employees invest, manage and benefit financially from the ownership of these properties.
- Investors in People – We are Investors In People Silver accredited and put a strong emphasis on training and development.
- Our special culture – We’re a values-led business meaning our values are central to everything we do and every decision we take.
- Healthcare – Each of our team benefits from private healthcare and associated perks via Vitality.
- Fresh Fruit – Edinburgh Community Food delivers a weekly crate of fruit to our office (you’d be amazed at how many bananas we get through)
- Breakfast on a Friday – breakfast rolls all round on a Friday morning. The variety of roll combinations……doubles, triples………anyone for a Bacon-Haggis-Egg-hash brown quadruple…… even tastier than it sounds!
- Culture club – We have 4 biggies during the year, one for each of the seasons, and a number of other more impromptu nights out.
- Umegaversary – we make sure we celebrate everyone’s work anniversaries at our monthly company meetings!
- Birthdays off – At Umega we get an extra day’s holiday to take on their birthday so they can go wild celebrating or enjoy a well-deserved rest!
- Volunteering: Get two days off to give back to the community!
