Due to recent successful pitches, a leading commercial property management company we have a long-standing relationship with are looking to grow their client accounting team. They have a track record of strong career progression within the business and have a proud reputation of maintaining salaries over this difficult period and not making redundancies, despite a challenging market.

In recent weeks they have successfully on-boarded a number of portfolios within the commercial sector including some in the shopping centre / retail space. They are therefore looking for a very experienced client accountant with a prior track record in that space to help drive the business forward and successfully support the new acquisitions they have made.

Ideally they are looking for somebody with some leadership and management experience although they would consider candidates with purely extremely strong commercial property accounts experience.

  • Produce and reconcile monthly and quarterly reporting including trial balance and aged debt
  • Ensure all monies are received and accounted for in accordance with RICS regulations
  • Update systems and relevant teams in accordance with surveying and property management team instructions

This position is looking for somebody who wants to take ownership of a portfolio and ensure delivery of a good service to the client by working seamlessly with those also responsible for the maintenance and management of the properties. As highlighted above, our client have been highly regarded in a sector where others have unfortunately had to made redundancies and cuts within their business.

The sort of skills that the client is looking for from prior positions is:

  • Strong commercial property accounting experience where they have been in a client facing role
  • Knowledgeable on all necessary legislation and guidelines required
  • Comprehensive service charge and client accounting experience
  • Prior experience managing your own designated portfolio in which you are accountable for
  • Exposure in previously setting up new clients and properties on a new system
