Senior Accommodation Manager
dwell Student Services are part of a Group of companies that own and operate an accommodation business in several countries, including student accommodation in the UK. It is part of a diversified business group listed on the Singapore Exchange. The company has moved into the UK student market in 2014 and recently took over further accommodation in the Bristol, Manchester and Newcastle area.
We are now looking to appoint a Senior Accommodation Manager to have overall management responsibility for 5 sites (1700 beds across all sites) within Manchester. The Senior Accommodation Manager will be supported by a dedicated staff team including two Accommodation Managers, with the overall objective of focusing on student experience, health and safety, maximising occupancy and building positive relations in line with Centurion’s overall objectives.
Your focus will be to lead, monitor and support staff in the planning and delivery of services. To make this happen, you will provide efficient management and administrative support, getting involved in everything from developing and implementing annual site plans, budget management to being on hand to guide the staff team.
You will be required to monitor all service delivery and take appropriate corrective actions should you find any shortfalls in the services being provided.
Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are essential for this role, as is previous experience of providing service delivery within a customer focused environment, working to budgets and targets, IT skills, including Microsoft Word, Outlook and Excel are also required. As our client group is primarily University students, a familiarity with their needs and expectations is essential, along with previous experience within a facilities / housing / accommodation service provider role.
You will work weekends, public holidays and some evenings depending on the needs of the business; therefore a flexible approach is essential.
This is a great opportunity for a motivated and driven individual, who wants a genuine opportunity to develop and grow with the business as it expands further in the UK Student Accommodation market.
