Job description

Property for Industry (PFI) is an NZX listed property vehicle specialising in industrial property. With a portfolio of almost 100 properties (valued at >$2 billion) is located throughout New Zealand and is leased to around 150 tenants. PFI was created on the principal that investing in quality industrial property in prime locations has the potential to deliver attractive shareholder returns. But they also knew that consistently achieving such returns would require focus, discipline, and a conservative approach to risk. This has been the secret to their success. Their commitment to industrial property has not changed. They believe a portfolio that performs is more important than growth.

Continuing the strategy of optimal portfolio performance, the opportunity for the newly created Facilities Management (FM) team to bring the FM function inside the business, transitioning from an outsourced model, has arisen. This will enable PFI to gain a more detailed understanding of their properties and demonstrates their commitment to sustainability goals and strengthens the overall tenant experience and relationship. This has led them to look for a Junior Facilities Manager to support the newly established Facilities Management Team.
