Along with our people, our immaculate image and presentation has set us apart right from the beginning and continues today. Our new buildings are a reflection of who we are, what we stand for. They are a unique physical expression of our culture and attitude toward the environment of which we are a part.
Rapid growth in freight volumes fuels our strategic ambition to create a more intense network. We will continue to bring our team and premises to locations closer to our customers in order to lift quality, reduce delivery times and our environmental footprint through shorter delivery distances.
In order to realise our ambitions, we are looking for a Property Manager to assist in the search for land or buildings, and help design and construct buildings in the Mainfreight Way.
You know better than anyone what is going on in the international and local real estate market and you know how to get things moving!
You manage the entire process from sourcing land, then from acquisition to realisation. In these projects you work closely with our own Mainfreight team and with various stakeholders (such as branch managers, real estate partners, architects, local authorities, installers, construction companies, etc.). You are also aware of the diverse interests that you manage to achieve the desired result.
Qualities that we are looking for:
- Full understanding and demonstration of Mainfreight’s immaculate image and presentation
- Experience in a similar position is a plus
- You move with pace
- You are commercial and result-oriented
- Excellent communication skills
- An eye for detail
- Ability to travel to different locations within Europe
This role is challenging and you will need to have a strong ability to manage your own time and the various projects you are working on. If this role sounds interesting to you, we’re keen to hear from you!
Our business can be broken down into three core areas:
We have a 100-year vision, that means every person and every decision we make today will leave an imprint on this company now and for 100 years to come. This long-term vision guides us as a business and determines both our decisions and actions every day.
As we extend our operations across the major trading nations of the world, we continue to stand out for the right reasons. It is our uncompromising quality, agility and unique culture which sets us apart.
We believe in working hard but we also have fun and a laugh while we do it. Our team is empowered to make decisions and have a say in how we do things.
Once you have learnt the fundamentals of Mainfreight on the operations floor, you will move into other areas of the business where you will get the right mix of autonomy and support. We believe that smart people can learn the specifics of any role so our focus is on helping you develop personal and professional skills that will allow you take on any role in the business.
We are an ever-changing business and we are constantly reviewing new ways to help our team develop the world-class skills that will lead our business into the future.
Our ongoing team development programs around the world currently includes:
- A full induction program
- Learning the business from the operations floor-up
- Structured leadership programmes
- Personal development courses
