Experience Level: Entry
Estimated Job duration: Ongoing
We are a London based hotel and property group . We have just finished a development of 8 flats and are starting 2 separate London developments with 18 flats in total . I need help with obtaining quotes from various suppliers . Must be UK based .
They fall into three general types . Don`t worry about understanding the terminology or experience of developments and construction. All the specific specification is supplied by our professional team of architects , surveyors etc. If you have an interest in property and interior design it may be an advantage.

1 obtaining quotes for various professional services .
2 finding construction companies of a specific size to add to the tender list .
3 obtaining trade price lists from various suppliers of finished goods , e.g. tiles , kitchens etc.

The process is similar for all of these. It needs someone who is organised and good on the phone. Even though we are buying and not selling , there is still quite a lot of chasing required to get the quotes. Researching to find the suppliers is also key. Especially for the second one. It is easy to find very small local builders , or very large national firms. Its finding firms in the middle which is harder.

Availability is key. It will be for approximately 2-3 hours a day. However it can be more. Please include details of usual hours available and holidays etc. There is flexibility on time to allow for school run as example. Must be available all 5 working days. You should be able to take calls during office hours .
You must be properly set up and be knowledgeable of MS office , outlook , drop box etc.

Ability to work independently and efficiently could lead to long term position with more hours. To become a long term position you must be able to do the following :

Organised . The ability to get things done to agreed deadline. Shouldn't`t needed to be chased .
Good communication skills . , From writing letters to dealing with people on the phone .
Reliable . For the position to grow, you need to be available , when you state you are going to be .
Efficient You are judged on how long it took to complete a task.
This is a remote position as I want the best person for the job. However being able to come to the office would be an advantage in the long term . My London office is in HA6.
Please include C.V. , your availability and any thoughts on the above and why it should be you. Bids without CV or vague details on availability will ignored. Likewise non UK . Immediate start.

Please contact me for any further information.
