Training is key to career progression: recruiter

by Brendan Wong 0 comments

Many property managers have an assumption that longevity will qualify them for a promotion to a department head, says one property management recruitment consultant.

Clare Verrall from Melbourne-based Design & Build said the issue was that many property managers had not been doing additional training to further their skills during their career.

“They may be a wonderful property manager but it doesn’t mean they’ll be able to lead a team well so that’s something a lot of them don’t understand,” she said.

Ms Verrall will speak on the topic of career progression and what property managers can do to reach their specific goals at the Wealth Conference on the Gold Coast in November.

“I’m hoping people will realise that property management is a serious career. It’s not something you can bumble your way through,” she said.

“If this is something you want to be your future you have got to focus on training and continue to better yourself.

“No matter how long you have been doing it for you can always learn more and you can always be better and not becoming complacent.

Ms Verrall joins a host of high profile speakers lined up to speak at the Wealth Conference and includes: managing director of BMT Tax Depreciation Quantity Surveyors Bradley Beer; real estate trainer Mark McLeod; director of Project One Pip de Rohan; and international speaker Matina Jewell.

Speaking on the theme of the conference, CEO of Apmasphere, the organisers of the event, Ben White said: “Limitless is focusing on how some of the changes that are happening in this industry create almost uncapped for people both in their career as well as an ability to grow their rent roll.

“For us a lot of the things that are happening is so exciting because you just see a lot of the old thinking that places mental constraint on potential people have on their careers is now gone or they’re now going.

“Now it’s really an opportunity for people who are prepared to make some big bold decisions now are going to benefit from this new phase of innovation that’s coming down through the industry.

In the lead up to the Wealth Conference, Apmasphere are running a special competition ‘VIP Property Manager’.

“One of the things about property management is that it’s such a tough job and rarely do they ever get thanked so we want to create the world’s most pampered property manager,” Mr White said.

The winner will receive a free coffee each working day for one year, a box of chocolates at the end of each month, fresh flowers sent once a month, a personal VIP line to the Apmasphere helpdesk; and a guess spot on Residential Property Manager.
