// Your FirstPort Team

Working in Commercial & Asset Management: Felix Keen

For landlords and investors, we deliver the whole set of essential services they need in order to run a successful property portfolio. We do everything from fast-paced estate agency to technical services and we do it for everyone from smaller investors and landlords to large-scale blue-chip investors with vast property portfolios.

What we have here is a professional services business with a strong reputation as the leading operator and an exciting level of growth within the business. What we look for is people who can really get under the skin of who the client is – and deliver for them.

The key skill we look for, across all roles, is to be great at relationship management. Our people have to really understand and identify with the client brands they represent. Having a strong drive to manage that relationship well, is of huge value. As with a lot of things at FirstPort, it’s a human quality and one we focus on.

The professional services we offer are wide-ranging. Surveying and technical services help ensure that major items of mechanical and electrical equipment are maintained in the best condition. Asset management helps investors get the best returns on their property portfolio, in build to rent we work with freeholders and developers to ensure their properties are maintained to the highest standards and we also have a leading commercial facilities management team. We also offer a business process outsourcing service that can take on a whole range of critical tasks for property owners. Finally, we have a very fast-growing estate agency operation that brings good tenants and sales in for our clients.

What you can easily see is that there is so much variety in what we do.

But it is also really important to point out that we are different from the rest in a couple of ways.

First of all, is our focus on digital systems. No one else in our UK market is as far ahead or has invested as much to develop data and systems. So you are joining a modern organisation with a very strong focus on embedding and improving our systems. We are going forward and in so many practical ways, it’s an exciting time to be here.

Secondly, FirstPort’s growth journey makes this a place where career opportunities in Commercial and Asset Management are very strong. This is such an exciting area of career opportunity within our business, with scope to learn, gain diverse skills and go all the way from graduate trainee to board director.
