Leasing Consultant

  • Christchurch City Council
  • 13 Mar, 2019
Full time Property Consultant

Job Description

The Facilities, Property and Planning team is accountable and responsible for the Council's lease portfolio of over 1600 properties that generates over $2 million in revenue. As leasing has a direct impact on a diverse group including stakeholders and the general public, we are seeking someone with a strong commercial background to manage these assets whilst developing and maintaining strong customer focused relationships.

This position works alongside three other Leasing Consultants and this particular portfolio deals with a wide variety of external leases and licences for properties. One of your internal customers will be the Parks unit where you'll manage agreements on their behalf for sports groups, community organisations, land leased out for grazing and farm operations and locations such as the Akaroa Wharf for cruise ship visits and tour operators. You'll work closely with Parks advisors and rangers to ensure that occupation of parks and reserves is in compliance with the Reserves Act and prepare written reports to the local community boards and the Council seeking delegation to enter into occupancy agreements.

There is an element of speaking in front of groups of people so your natural confidence and level headed personality will be useful in explaining matters in a way everyone can understand. As the role deals with providing professional advice and negotiations around leases and licences your comprehensive experience combined with your degree qualification in a property related discipline will allow you to process information quickly and effectively.

Your daily routine will include administrative tasks such as carrying out rent reviews, term renewals and final expiries. Lease inspections will take you anywhere from the northern outskirts of the city to the hills of Banks Peninsula. Your experience across a complex range of leases will prove invaluable as you'll proactively manage and take ownership of your work including upcoming preparation for proposal and tender documents seeking new tenants for strategic Port Hills properties held by the Council. You'll also be instrumental in ensuring that new occupation agreements are finalised for the Taylors Mistake Bach's.

We offer the chance to work with some of Christchurch's most iconic buildings so apply now and seize the opportunity to be a part of the bigger picture!
