Retail Asset Manager

  1. Permanent
  2. Johannesburg
ZAR850000 - ZAR1200000 per annum, Benefits: Shares bonus
Retail specialist sought by listed fund. Our client owns a multi-billion rand portfolio of retail assets around the county. They have built a solid reputation as property asset managers who are able to sustain and enhance their distributions to shareholder for nearly 20 years.

They are constantly striving to add value through redevelopment, acquisition, disposal, and bespoke leasing.

Whilst all assets are being managed day-to-day by an external service provider, they are looking to appoint an entrepreneurial and out-of-the-box thinker to oversee this relationship on a portion of their portfolio, whilst also reporting on asset performance at the highest level. An Asset Manager in this environment is responsible for assisting in all acquisitions & disposals within their portfolio, providing up to date information regularly and taking full charge of upgrades & refurbishments. Whilst they could consider someone with a strong financial and property management background - what they really want is a DISRUPTOR.  By hiring a QS / PR / DM into this role, or even someone who has worked for a retail tenant, they seek to bring fresh ideas into a well established team. Open ONLY TO AFRICAN FEMALES, this is an opportunity for your to put your retail skill to use in alternative context; one where development plays a significant role. As such, they are happy to consider someone who has taken full charge of a retail development from either a developers, costing or project management view point. You will be a senior individual within your current organisation who is able to influence your own team as well as retain and understand local and National tenants; this you will do by displaying a real understanding of the operational risks and opportunities of retail in a changing landscape.

Expect some travel in this role, as the portfolio can only be successfully managed with ongoing visits to some far-flung sites.

To be a suitable candidate you will need:

  • A Bcom in Finance QS or Bsc in Property studies/ Construction.
  • At least 10 years’ working experience
  • An entrepreneurial thinker, with a proven ability in working on retail assets/ projects
  • Analytical and solutions-driven individual with high emotional intelligence
Only female African candidates can be considered at this time.
