Fed up of working for a company that is stuck in the dark ages? Want to be a part of a company that encourages ideas and offers a great work environment?
We are a company growing at a rapid rate embarking on a new, inspiring chapter. Join us on a journey in changing the Property Management industry for the better…
When we established ourselves as a business, our goal was to challenge an industry which is notoriously slow to adopt new ways of thinking and where transparency was nowhere to be seen. We were founded based on a fresh approach to Block and Estate Management and our “get it done” attitude has won us multiple awards and is what has ensured our success.
We offer a unique, tailorable Property Management service to a varied portfolio, from commercial retail parks to housing estates and apartment blocks. We also work on behalf of a range of clients including national Housing Developers and Resident Management Companies.
It is our modern ideologies and ethos of complete transparency that sets us apart from the rest. We also encourage regular site inspections which allows us to identify any problems as soon as they arise, and our extremely dedicated in-house maintenance coordinators allow us to get these problems resolved promptly. We also have our own highly skilled in-house legal team that advise our staff and our clients on their legal obligations. We are a company that can offer the complete package.
We’re a team of 9 and we’re continuously evolving. It’s an exciting time to join us, to be a part of a company whose roots are already imbedding in the industry, yet we are by no means your standard Block Management company. We’re still young so you’ll have the opportunity to grow alongside us as a business in a vibrant work environment.  
Due to continued growth, our team is growing. We are now searching for a new Service Charge Client Accountant to join our team based from our office in Shropshire.
