Looking for property jobs?

The UK’s real estate and property sectors are growing quickly, and that means more great opportunities for rewarding careers. Whether you’re looking for a new job, a talented candidate, or a new house, the property sector has a place for you. While we can’t get you your dream home, The People Pod can certainly help you get your dream job in the property sector.

We’re expert recruiters in sectors including BTR/PRS, student accommodation (PBSA), co-living and co-working, all of which are among the fastest-growing and most exciting areas of the property jobs market. To date, we’ve placed talented candidates in roles from property investment consultants to regional operations managers. From there, we’ve watched them grow and develop their careers, and seen businesses grow and flourish around them.

Property is a great sector to work in if you don’t want to be tied down to an office, especially if you’re looking for a career rather than a day job. There are fantastic opportunities within the sector to climb the ladder; whether that’s the career ladder, the property ladder, or in some roles, actual ladders.

Experience is preferred, but it’s not always necessary for roles in the property sector. As long as you have the right attitude, a willingness to learn, and similar experience in a different field, you might be the right person for the job.

So, whether you’re an experienced candidate, a new recruit, or a business with an important role to fill, The People Pod can help.

PRS/BTR

Did you know that the Private Rented Sector (PRS) is the fastest-growing sector in the UK? Funny to think that private renting used to be a teeny percentage of the housing market! Now, Future of London predicts that almost half the households in the capital will be in the PRS by 2030.

Already, 20% of UK homes fall into the category of ‘build-to-rent’ (BTR) properties, and more are built every day in some of the coolest city centres in the UK. As you can see, that’s a lot of property to manage.

In BTR, you’ll focus on providing amazing service for residents, working in or alongside a first-class on-site management team. These jobs might also come with fantastic perks like residents’ lounges, gyms and workspaces. Many are even pet-friendly, so there’s no excuse not to apply!

Here are some of the PRS/BTR jobs we recruit for:

  • Property Manager
  • Regional Manager
  • Development Manager
  • Front of House
  • Facilities Manager
  • Head of Estates
  • General Manager
  • Block Manager

Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA)

If you remember your student days, you might think that a job in PBSA sounds like hard work. But things are very different today, with students leaving behind house-shares and halls of residence in favour of trendy, hygienic, purpose-built luxury homes.

These purpose-built developments offer cushy spaces with high-end facilities and incredible service to match. They are perfectly designed to accommodate student life in the city with shared social spaces, fitness suites, cinema rooms, laundry facilities and quiet working areas. Some even provide breakfast in the morning!

Here are some of the PBSA jobs we recruit for:

  • Residence Manager
  • Customer Service Advisor
  • Development Manager
  • Assistant Accommodation Manager
  • Lettings Executive
  • Sales Manager
  • City Manager
  • Regional Manager

Estate Management

The property sector has so many opportunities for those who want to get hands-on experience. No two days in estate management are the same, and there are always new challenges to tackle.

Not to mention, roles in estate management mean that you get to work AND live in some of the most beautiful places in the world.

Here are some of the estate management jobs where we’ve placed candidates:

  • Estate Administrator
  • Resident Agent
  • Senior Management
  • Domestic Staff
  • Property Manager
  • Senior Estates Surveyor
  • Branch Manager
  • Facilities Manager
  • Estates Project Manager
  • Regional Estates Manager
  • Building Manager

Co-working / Serviced Offices

The flexible office sector is growing every year, with disruptive innovation that is transforming what co-working spaces can be. We’re no longer talking about four walls, a desk and a computer.

This is why co-working spaces have become all the rage, providing fantastic opportunities for commuters to get chatting with other like-minded people. Three new co-working spaces open every day across the globe, pushing innovative solutions to drive creativity and motivation at work.

Co-working spaces have created lots of new roles outside of traditional office setups. Work shouldn’t be a drag and this is why more people want to transform workspaces and create more positive places to get productive.

Here are some of the co-working jobs we recruit for:

  • Community/Centre Manager
  • Co-working Ambassador
  • Front Desk Associate
  • Operations Manager
  • Customer Service Advisor
  • Regional Manager
  • Workspace Events Manager

Property sector insights

State of play in the property sector?

The property sector is thriving at the moment and there are a lot of exciting opportunities coming up every day - plenty of roles that need to be filled by the right people. The great thing about the property sector right now is that there are no specific boxes you have to tick to get your foot in the door. Mindset and drive are two of the biggest factors to your success.

The year 2020 shook up the whole world and businesses have found themselves in some really difficult spots. It’s not been all bad though - in fact, businesses everywhere have been getting more tech-savvy and turned to remote working, which has changed how lots of people think about the typical office.

We’re seeing co-working spaces become more common and bring in home comforts in a bid to set up a cosier and more collaborative environment for workers. Existing spaces are receiving renovations to be more up-to-date, drive productivity and meet the expectations of the modern worker.

As a result, there are opportunities from left, right and centre for those with project management and business development experience.

As for the housing market, property prices are skyrocketing at the moment and growing far beyond the average income, so it’s easy to see why most people are renting and why good quality, affordable housing is on everyone’s agenda right now.

Build to rent is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the UK. This is an exciting time to kickstart a career or take the next step as an investor or developer. Your skills are very much in demand!

What are the biggest things impacting recruitment in these sectors at the moment?

Property demand is on the rise, as are the expectations and fears of both employers and employees.

After 2020 hit so many people with furloughs and redundancies, lots of people are worried about the stability of their jobs. Making career moves can be scary after everything we’ve all been through, but that’s why we’re here to help you make the best choice for your future.

We’re seeing a boom in opportunities but people need to have confidence in themselves. Put your confidence in us and we’ll give it back to you with interest.

What skills are in demand?

  • Strong commitment

  • Good with people
  • Patience
  • Assertiveness
  • Tech-savviness
  • Ambition

Don’t feel that you need to tick every box, or even to have experience in property to apply. We pride ourselves on spotting talent and matching people to the perfect role for them, and there are lots of different jobs in the property sector, so whatever you do best, we can find a chance for you to shine.

What do the next few years look like?

Future of London predicts that 40% of households could be rented in the PRS by 2030. As

you might expect, renters are demanding a higher standard of quality and better value for money!

In the future, we predict a surge in opportunities for employment in the PRS and property sectors. For skilled workers wanting to make that next big career move, you’re on an upward trajectory from here.
