WHAT YOU’RE GOOD AT/KNOWN FOR • Building and sustaining high-quality relationships with your people, customers, clients and colleagues. • Commercially savvy. • Inclusive of others, non-judgmental, fair. • Presence and credibility to work with a wide range of groups and individuals. • Highly organised, on time, well-presented. WHAT WILL IT TAKE? Physical Effort • Area Managers spend a great deal of time travelling to and from their properties and other office locations. • It is often more efficient to walk between properties in the same city. Similarly, when onsite you may be required to assist a customer or respond to a fire alarm, which would likely involve climbing stairs. • It is expected that Area Managers support with annual check-in weekends, which can involve lifting and carrying of items. Mental Effort • This is a role of competing priorities and as a seasonal operation, there are times of year when workloads may spike or unplanned incidents will take over. The role requires someone highly organised, but someone who is calm and pragmatic in their response to changes. • Despite solid planning, short-notice work may be required of you. • Unpredictable pattern of activity, no two days are the same and this role would be more suited to someone who can operate effectively in a highly-varied environment. Emotional Effort • Frequent exposure to difficult circumstances involving customers and/or people. There is a known increase in mental health challenges for the student population and whilst we will provide all the tools, training and support necessary, we recognise everyone is different and there may be a more profound or lasting effect on some of our people. • As we build out this business, working on the development of organisational processes, systems and change, it can bring with it uncertainty. We would seek to minimise or remove any concerns for people through clear, consistent communication.
