Portfolio Manager

Job description

Why, How, What?

Bricklane harnesses technology to unlock investment in residential property at scale using a revolutionary technology and data driven approach.

We believe it’s time the housing market was brought into the 21st century, to benefit tenants and investors alike. We are committed to fixing issues in the rental market by providing high quality homes in which people aspire to live.

We’ve recently raised £600m to deploy across London, Bristol and the South East - it’s the largest tech-led investment in residential property outside the US, and we’re just getting started.

Backed by the likes of LocalGlobe, A/O Proptech and Zoopla, we’ve assembled a smart, highly collaborative team from the worlds of tech, property and finance.

Technology is central to our approach, and success so far, enabling us to buy and manage properties more smartly, and more efficiently, than ever previously possible.

We’re looking for a portfolio manager to join our team, helping to deliver world-class service for our institutional partners and tenants as we enter the next stage of our growth and expand our operations across the UK property market.

What you will be working on

  • You’ll be responsible for the end to end operation, administration and optimisation of the portfolios Bricklane manages on behalf of its clients.

  • You’ll liaise with our management team and property management partners to develop strategy to ensure portfolio performance, sustained growth, and delivery of continual business and financial insights.

  • Day to day responsibilities will range from ensuring homes are let through quality branding, performance reporting and management, to providing our tenants with a world-class rental service.

  • Partnering with our Finance Team to own relevant data sets, review property performance and conduct analysis to support portfolio performance, scalability and growth.

Job requirements

What we’re looking for

  • Experience managing residential assets, having worked at a sizeable asset management or property management firm.

  • A demonstrable track record in improving portfolio performance and identifying cost-efficiencies

  • Good working knowledge of property pricing based on market data and trends

  • Experience collaborating with property management partners to ensure day to day property operations run smoothly

  • An ability to identify opportunities for enhancements (refurbishing or furnishing) to increase unit value

  • A tenant-centric mindset focussed on delivering a quality service and anticipating tenant needs

  • Confidence in managing third party suppliers to operational KPIs

  • Understanding of a property-related profit and loss account. Excel proficiency will be helpful.

Benefits of working with us

  • Flexibility: current Covid-19 circumstances aside, we love working from our brand new office in Old Street. That said, we support partial remote working, if that's best for you.

  • Personal development: we support you with training opportunities to help you grow.

  • Holiday: 25 days annual leave + 1 extra day around Christmas.

  • Health: we offer Vitality healthcare to support your health and wellbeing, with discounts for gym membership, activewear, sports equipment, and cinema tickets.

  • Pension: you’ll be covered for later life with our pension plan.

Our hiring process

  • You apply for the role, completing a form so we can find out more about you.

  • For applications that progress, we arrange a follow up 20 min call to discuss the role and your experience further.

  • You’ll then meet with 2-3 members of our senior team, including our CEO, to discuss your application and experience
