The Real Estate Business Systems desk sits within the wider Finance team and benefits from the relationships already established within the Finance and Accounting space.

This desk has the most crossover of clients throughout the business as all clients and candidates use Asset Management/ Property Management systems. These systems are in place to act as the link for the business between the landlords and managing agents. The desk is structured into two sectors, permanent and interim. The interim candidates work on a project basis, usually for upgrades and implementations of a new system.

The permanent candidates are placed for longer term support or management of the systems. The types of companies supported are Property Consultancies, Large Landlords, Asset Managers, various Investment Managers/Funds and Real Estate Software Providers. Joining Cobalt on this desk will require reconnecting with a number of contacts and establishing new relationships.
