Developing and owning retail and commercial properties in Southern Africa, our client manages these buildings both on-site and via their Johannesburg Head Office. With their Asset Managers on the road much of the time, they are looking to appointment and Asset Administration Manager who will hold a duel function : managing a portfolio of 2 – 3 malls as the property manager, whilst also overseeing the administrative work of the two other Property Managers in the team. This means that you will be responsible for MANAGING the Centre & Buildings Managers to ACHIEVE their day-to-day deliverables, by keeping a tight rein on administration, financial reporting, arrears management, marketing, renewals, budgets, income, and expenses. However, you will also train, guide and monitor the accurate & timely capturing of all of these work flows onto the Nicor system, which each of the 3 property managers are accountable for in their respective portfolios. Essentially, you would fulfil the role of the de-facto Asset Manager in his absence, with a view to ensuring that documentation is up to date in order for performance reports to be accurate and easily accessible on their management software.
Whilst you will be based at the Head office in Johannesburg, this position requires monthly travel to sites in central Africa, where you are likely to need to stay over for 2 or 3 nights at a time. Sound knowledge in Nicor property systems is a must have! It is also unlikely that you would have the knowledge to fulfil this role unless you have worked in property administration for a minimum of 4 years, and in property management for another 4. Your verbal and written communication in English will also be flawless, as you will be expected to negotiate with tenants, impart knowledge and present management packs at a wide variety of levels.
This is a non-corporate environment which appreciates people who can think on their feet, take on responsibilities outside of their ‘job description’ and who are happy to do whatever it takes to keep the portfolio running effectively and efficiently.”
