Would you love to use your commercial property management skills to grow gospel impact in London? Perhaps you didn’t think that combining property management and your love of Jesus would be possible?

We are looking for a Property Manager to look after our portfolio of commercial properties during a time of change and transformation. Some of these properties are used by London City Mission, and some are let out on commercial tenancies. Many will soon be redeveloped, guided by our in-house development team and supported by you.

About Us

London City Mission, together with churches in London, shares the gospel in word and action with those on the margins. Because London needs Jesus.

We have over 100 missionaries and support staff on the ground across London, serving the needs of the local church and reaching people unlikely to hear the transformative message of the gospel.

  • You will work closely with the Estates Manager and in-house development team to manage tenancies in line with our budgeted income needs and development plans. These development plans are in line with the vision and goals of London City Mission to ensure our properties are used to glorify God. You will give timely advice on landlord and tenant matters.
