  • Core Asset Management tasks; rent reviews, dilaps, budget setting and analysis 
  • Management of ancillary income streams and how these can be maximised; filming and advertising, car parking, electric vehicle charging and commission based sales

In addition to what to expect within the role and your benefits, it’s good to know that you’ll be working for a business that gives back - The Oglesby Charitable Trust has donated more than £30m since it started out in 2001. Supporting charities across Arts and Culture, Education, Environment, Medical Research and Social & Health Inequality.
