Property Disposals Manager - Social Housing Sector


"Lead the way as Disposals Manager. A rare opportunity for a commercially and financially astute property expert".


C£55000 Benefits


West London / Hybrid


Are you looking for a fascinating and unusual role in social housing? Our client, a leading social housing provider in West London, is looking for an experienced Disposals Manager to join their team.


The Disposals Manager will determine the best course of action for empty properties within our client's portfolio. You will need to weigh the cost of renovation against property prices in the area while also considering our client's desire to raise capital for investment in further properties.


After liaising with the company's asset management teams to assess the viability of renovation or sale, you'll then present your cost/benefit analysis to the board. If your proposal is approved, you will be responsible for leading the sale process and liaising with auction houses or local estate agents.


This role offers an excellent opportunity to make a difference and use your expertise to help our client provide better services and facilities through investments in new properties.


To succeed in this position, you should have a background in conveyancing and be commercially and financially minded. In addition, you'll be self-starting with a proactive approach, organised, and capable of spinning multiple plates. Excellent communication skills, including PowerPoint presentations, are also required.


The role is a hybrid position split between the head office in West London and remote working. However, you will need to visit properties in the area, so you must be within comfortable commuting distance of their offices. There is a tube station next to their offices and onsite parking, which should make for a relatively easy commute.


If this sounds like the perfect role for you, then we'd love to hear from you today. Apply now by emailing your CV, quoting reference LX 1351417 to or calling us on 01905 381 320.
