Start Date
The successful applicant will be part of a small team dealing with all aspects of running a successful property company including estate management, administration and finance.

The apprentice will report directly to the Estates Manager and will assist with all aspects of this role including liaising with tenants, contractors, utilities companies and external professionals such as estate agents, valuers, building surveyors, engineers, architects, solicitors and insurers.Initially this will be achieved by shadowing the Estates Manager and/or the Property Director and, as the apprentice gains confidence and experience, he/she will be given responsibility for specific projects and properties.

Daily tasks will include assisting with day-to-day property management, lease events (rent reviews & lease renewals), tenant applications for consent (assignments, sublettings and to make alterations), marketing vacant properties, rental & capital valuations, appraising investment and development opportunities, dealing with group insurances as well as general office administration, website & IT maintenance.Attendance at monthly management meetings will give an understanding of decision-making processes and corporate strategy.

Cromwell uses an integrated property management and accounting system by Trace Solutions (BlueBox) and the apprentice will quickly become adept at maintaining property and tenancy information, service charge management, property-related bookkeeping and generating reports for myriad purposes.

The role will require regular travel to properties for purposes such as inspections, measurement, tenant meetings, marketing meetings (properties available for sale or to let) and assessing prospective investments.

This is a wide-ranging and challenging role that will give genuine hands-on experience to equip the apprentice with highly sought-after, transferable skills, opening up many opportunities for a successful career in commercial property.
