Finance Manager – £50,000 – £60,000 + remote/hybrid options!

Finance Manager (Property Sector)

Robert Half are super excited to be partnering with a growing SME, Create Real Estate, to recruit an experienced Finance Manager to join a small team of highly driven and entrepreneurial individuals. This role is perfect for someone with a start-up mentality – ideally with a passion or interest in working within the property development sector – who enjoys an all-encompassing and varied role!

Create is a purpose driven real estate investment and development company that focus on the adaptive reuse of under-invested in buildings to increase economic and social value, as well as driving meaningful sustainability improvements through their investments. Being backed by a major European real estate private equity company and in their early stages of life, this poses massive opportunity for future growth and makes it an incredibly exciting time to join the business.

Current projects include: the re positioning of a highly prominent but dated office building in central Cardiff into a trail blazing grade-A office building packed with high end interior design, smart building technology and amenity; the conversion of a former Victorian warehouse in Bristol’s city centre to sophisticated loft-style office space; and the regeneration of landmark buildings in a Wiltshire market town to become a cool mixed-use neighbourhood for work, rest and play!

Based in Bristol’s Generator Building in the heart of Bristol City Centre, this role offers huge flexibility around working from home as they want their employees to feel empowered to work where they feel most productive, whilst still creating a supportive and inclusive culture through meet ups in the office.
