Funds Utilities Manager

Job Summary

New position creates rare opportunity.

Boasting a top performing commercial portfolio of buildings around the Western Cape, our listed client will soon be growing again via a significant acquisition. Their appetite for industrial buildings in particular means that utilities and energy management is a key driver in business health and tenant satisfaction. Whilst much of the information and metering for these services are outsourced, they have recognised a need for a full-time internal staff member to take charge of this critical function.

Based in their offices in Cape Town, the new Fund Utilities Manager will report directly to the COO, but work closely with portfolio managers and service providers to ensure that tenants are being billed correctly and that the company is recovering costs effectively.  With nearly 50% of the portfolio being solar powered, and plans to extend this to the entire asset base, the FUM will need to have a firm handle on the billings associated with alternative power sources, which may develop into wheeling possibilities in future.   This role involves a range of responsibilities, including data analysis, maximization of recoveries, tenant engagement, budgeting, and reporting. As such the ideal candidate would be both highly analytical and methodical, but also be able to maintain good relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders and contractors.

Proven capabilities in a role of a similar nature – preferably within another private or public property fund is essential, where you would have developed your sustainability and utilities experience over a minimum of 5 years. A relevant degree in accounting, information sciences, statistics or engineering is also essential to ensure you are able to analyse and track complex data to spot both trends and anomalies. Expert level use of MS Excel is understandably non-negotiable, whilst working experience in MDA software is also beneficial.
