Emphasis Inventories Limited, one of London’s premier inventory companies, is seeking freelance inventory clerks to join our team anywhere in London and/or Surrey.
Your work hours will be entirely flexible both regards to time of day and which days you want to work. It can fit around any other commitment and be for as little as a few days per month!
No experience in doing inventories are needed. All necessary training will be provided, but certain personal skills are important. As a person you are very thorough and have good common sense. You have good verbal communication skills and an ability to work independently. You are courteous, objective and not unduly influenced by others. You take responsibility for your work, you are punctual and efficient, and all work is done on time.
Your work will take you all around the city and/or county, seeing many types of properties. You will join a very supportive team with a strong focus on customer service and quality, but you're independent enough to be comfortable and confident working on your own.
Your job will consist of documenting the condition and content of properties at the beginning and end of tenancies. You will place recommendations on who is responsible for any changes to properties during tenancies, using your training and common sense to make sound decisions that protect both tenant’s deposits and landlord’s investments in a fair way.
The training given will lead to an accreditation by the AIIC (Association of Independent Inventory Clerks). You will need to commit to 3 full days of training per week for up to the first 2-4 weeks, but these can be any day of the week of your choosing. Thereafter we will aim to offer you work for 5 days or more per month, to be mutually agreed.
Access to a car for appointments is required for work in Surrey only, there is no such requirement in London where we use public transport. All travel costs and usage of own car are reimbursed.
The salary is a percentage of the invoiced amount for the job, with a minimum amount for any committed time in case of cancellations.
For your application to be considered it needs to include a cover letter that includes 3 specific paragraphs where each explains:
- a job where you extensively interacted with customers (waiter, shop assistant etc.)
- a job or study programme where you showed attention to detail or concentration on a subject over a prolonged period of time (bachelor in chemistry, actor etc.)
- a job/role where you had a position of trust over a period of time (cashier, airline crew etc.)
Applications without a cover letter including these 3 separate paragraphs will not be considered.
