A rewarding career for ambitious professionals

Strata management (owners or body corporate management) is an industry looking for enthusiastic and reliable professionals. One in four Australians now own or occupy a unit in a strata community and this is projected to grow dramatically over the next decade.

This upsurge in demand for housing in strata titled developments has also increased the need for the ongoing management of strata properties and their communities.

Choosing a career in the strata industry places you at the front line of this exciting time of growth and innovation in the property industry.

Use your ability to be self-motivated and self-disciplined to efficiently manage a portfolio that includes:

  • Assist in managing the needs of the community
  • Govern the processes for repairs and maintenance
  • Arrange and conduct meetings of the strata community and its committee
  • Maintain appropriate insurance and contact
  • Administer the finances of the strata
  • Effective time management skills
  • Active problem solving and negotiation skills
  • Ability to mediate issues between stakeholders
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

  • Ethical practices and standards
  • Crisis and risk management
  • Governance and legal skills
  • Ability to multitask
  • Resilient client relationships
  • Administer meetings to achieve results
  • Attention to detail
  • Broad understanding of a building’s construction and mechanical services

As a strata manager you will liaise, negotiate and communicate with:

  • Real Estate and Conveyancing Industries
  • The Development and Construction Industry: Developers, Builders, Architects, Surveyors and Building Engineers

  • Other key professions: Legal, Insurance, Finance and Banking, Accounting and Auditing, and Debt Collection
  • Plus anyone and any industry that will assist you to manage the needs, requirements and obligations of the strata community and their scheme

Use your own personal experience and knowledge with current and developing technology to enhance your communication ability with clients.

Make your decision to enter an industry with a clear career path.
