You will report directly to the Chief Executive whilst providing additional support to the Housing Manager and Development Team for various on-going projects and the overall company strategy.

  • Marketing Coordination: Update website and social media pages, create and design marketing material and manage the settlement materials and handover at the end of projects.
You will have previous experience with governance and board meetings, as well as the ability to self-manage your workload and be flexible in the running of your day-to-day duties. Further to this, you will ideally have knowledge of the property / development industry and be able to work independently. Knowledge of Adobe Suite would be beneficial as well as a relevant qualification.

Apart from working with an amazing, collaborative team, UPL also provides a suite of benefits which includes a wellness package, discounted health insurance and free access to selected swimming pools. Furthermore, a car park can be negotiated for the right candidate!
