The Land Trust is an independent charity dedicated to the management of green spaces for community benefit. We provide a cost effective solution for public open spaces, which delivers significant benefits such as health improvements, social cohesion, economic and environmental uplift and educational resources.

The Client Property Manager will work closely with the Director of Portfolio Management, Finance and Communications partners, Business Development Managers, and Estate Managers. This role is both client facing and contractor/partner facing to ensure the phased transfer of land is coordinated and managed. The external partners and clients include solicitors, managing agents, developers and external stakeholders across the country to ensure that all stages of the service charge process are being met.

Key Responsibilities;

  • Be accountable and responsible for delivering all phases of each development site across all functions for the handover of all multi-phase service charge sites from development to portfolio management. This is set out in the Service Charge process. This will include legal documentation, resources required (in portfolio and centrally), SLA’s, accounting treatment, communications and marketing materials etc.
  • Be responsible for project management of each multi-phase service charge site after initial site acquisition to ensure a seamless transfer of each phase to portfolio management.
  • Act as the first point of contact for the developers and strategic landholder, discussing and agreeing actions as required post initial acquisition until the site is being managed by the Estate Manager.
  • Champion the role well maintained open spaces have in the creation and development of sustainable communities.
  • Identify and develop new opportunities for the Trust to contribute to the development of relevant strategy and policy and the development of “good practice”.

This position requires flexibility to undertake other duties and responsibilities commensurate with the post. Occasional evening and weekend working may be required, will be required to travel around the UK as necessary to fulfil the role effectively and will need to have a current valid driving licence.

Essential Experience:

  • Relevant professional qualification in Project Management
  • 5 years skills and experience in property acquisition, legal transfer documents and transfers
  • Minimum of 5 years experience in client and stakeholder management and influence
  • Excellent communication skills including the ability to develop and manage relationships with partner organisations and contractors, and to engage with local people in resolving issues and engaging them effectively in site management
  • IT literate with proven skills in using MS Office packages
  • Ability and confidence to work on own initiative, as well as part of a team, and to resolve problems as they arise, remaining calm under pressure
