Career Profile

Career Profile: Property Management

Name: Joel Pottesman

Job Title: Property Management

I work in the Property Management team.

I work on some very interesting and varied portfolios across the UK.

I always wanted to do a vocation but with a good work-life balance. After some research and work experience, I knew property was the industry for me and surveying was the obvious choice. I initially signed on to the Building Surveying course but transferred to the commercial side of surveying. My current role is managing landlord’s property portfolios, which involves regular communication with my clients and their tenants. Other roles include rent collection, service charge, tenant applications, project works and much more.

I work closely with Facilities Managers and Client Accountants to deliver a full range of services. We are experts in the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 and are reading leases on a regular basis. Property management is considered to be a broad specialty because it involved utilising a wide range of services. This keeps the role fresh and exciting.

Education

  • GCSEs: English, Science, Maths, History, Art and Religious Studies
  • My A levels included AVCE Business Studies and Religious Studies.
  • 2.1 Urban Estate Management BSc (Hons), University of Westminster

Qualifications Achieved
