Role Responsibilities At Notting Hill Genesis, our property managers are known as property management officers (PMOs) and are the main point of contact for the homeowners on your portfolio of properties, what we call a 'patch'. You will deal with their queries and provide excellent levels of customer service through your interactions with them and the service that you provide. Being a PMO with us is a varied role and no two days are the same. Some of your regular tasks will include: Building and managing relationships with residents Property inspections and managing repairs Setting service charge budgets and producing service charge accounts Managing income collection Managing repairs and cleaning & gardeningAs you would be joining us at a higher level than other PMOs based on your previous experience, you will be expected to take on more complex patches or cases. Although you'll have a lot of responsibility, you won't be on your own. You will be part of a leasehold team overseen by a Leasehold Manager with the support of a Senior PMO. You will also get close support from the wider leasehold service and specialist teams that assist in ensuring our residents are safe and comfortable in their homes. We have a number of vacancies across our Kings Cross and Hammersmith offices. You will split your time between our offices and the properties that you manage so a willingness to travel regularly and be flexible is required. The Ideal Candidate You might already be working as a property assistant or block, property, or estate manager, or you might be working in another housing role like tenancy management. As well as bringing some property management or housing experience, it is essential that you can demonstrate the following key skill and abilities: Customer service experience Proactive attitude Problem-solving skills Excellent communication skills (verbal and written) Ability to manage workload and prioritise accordingly Excellent computer skills including Microsoft Word and ExcelThis role can be hugely rewarding, and you need to be organised, thorough and resilient with the ability to thrive under pressure. An understanding of leasehold legislation would also be an advantage, but it is not essential. There is always demand for jobs in this area and this is an exciting career opportunity for the right person. A lot of our PMOs start with us with no housing or property management experience. If you don't have any relevant experience, we have an advert open until 21 May 2023 for a Property Management Officer which might be more suitable for you and we would encourage you to apply for this.

We have a defined progression route for our PMOs to work towards which outlines the expectations and requirements for each level of our PMO roles and their progression pathways. Supporting our staff through progression is important to us and recognises the excellent work that our PMOs do day to day. PMOs are encouraged to actively seek opportunities for professional development. There are four levels for the PMO role, and each level comes with a pay increase. Many PMOs will start at level 1 as this is the entry level, however you will be starting with us at a higher level because of your relevant experience.
