Kitt designs and operates workspace for the world's most vibrant brands and positions buildings for London’s forward-thinking asset owners. From managing the design and build to curating an elevated ongoing experience, we create spaces worth leaving home for.

The Role

Our Leasing Managers are the ultimate Kitt brand ambassadors. As the main point of contact for our prospective tenants and their agents, you’ll work to let fully managed and fitted spaces. The role goes beyond pure office leasing, as you will collaborate with our internal operations and delivery teams to build bespoke packages that meet our tenants’ unique business needs. 

You will be working in the City Team and conducting deals in City, City Fringe and SE1. 

You will 

  • Build and maintain solid relationships with brokers and tenant reps to ensure that Kitt is their go-to managed provider
  • Promote our buildings in your patch through your network and respond to incoming leads 
  • Conduct tenant viewings with business leaders ranging from HR managers to CEOs 
  • Partner with internal teams to create and present detailed, customised proposals with information such as floor plans and projected costs 
  • Conduct deal negotiations for our landlord and disposal agent partners with prospective tenants and their agents 
  • Act as both a facilitator and influencer during the deal negotiations, expertly handling objections and balancing the needs of both internal and external stakeholders 
  • Agree Lease and Management Services Agreement Heads of Terms by all parties before handing over to the Real Estate Advisory team to complete the legal and programme management to move in
  • Keep HubSpot accurate and up-to-date
  • Work with the Real Estate Advisory team to advise landlords on their go-to-market strategies for their buildings 
  • Keep up to date with market availability and trends 

About you

  • You’re ambitious and target-driven, always looking to exceed expectations 
  • You have experience in the managed or traditional property industries
  • You have strong relationships within the flex and traditional property industries 
  • You’re a natural communicator; you’re sociable and build relationships easily
  • You’re organised with meticulous attention to detail and the ability to prioritise in a busy and changing environment
  • You can read between the lines and synthesise information coming from multiple sources into accessible and digestible updates

Why Kitt? 

The world of work has shifted forever. As people everywhere prioritise purpose over their paychecks, company culture has been thrown into the spotlight. Part of the problem is that too many companies are showing up to work in bland, cookie-cutter offices. We’re changing this.

Real company culture can only be built in person, in the real world – and for it to be authentic, it needs its own personalised space. That’s why we create offices as unique as the brands and the people who work there. We’re long-term culture partners to our clients long after they've signed the lease and chosen the paint colours.

We’re disrupting an industry that has long needed a shake-up, and landlords are becoming increasingly aware of this. To let their spaces, they need to partner with a company that can offer hassle-free, flexible, and all-inclusive products. By partnering with Kitt, they can reach these new markets and serve the needs of these businesses.
