Star Pubs & Bars and The Role
In Star Pubs & Bars (SP&B), we believe that a well-invested pub estate, run by innovative and experienced operators, keeps our pubs at the heart of their local community, where they bring people together from all walks of life.
In 2022 we are investing £42m in our pubs across the UK, this will touch 660 sites and create 700 new jobs. These investments aren’t just about creating nicer pubs, they’re about giving our customers a better experience, generating better returns for licensees, and ensuring our pubs continue to flourish in their communities
“If you enjoy looking for ways to add value and enjoy a thriving and challenging business environment, with every day being different, then this is the role for you.” - Louise, Estates Team Leader
Being an Estates Manager in SP&B is not just about property issues, it means having a wide strategic vision for the estate, optimising profit streams, and therefore building the asset value. You’ll be the ‘go-to’ property expert for the regional operations team and the wider regional clusters and be an expert in Landlord and Tenant and the Pubs Code Regulations.
You will seek to drive the value of the estate through rental negotiations, development opportunities as well as looking at disposals of sites that no longer form part of the core business. You have to enjoy working as part of a team as well as individually but above all, you must enjoy dealing with people.
Reporting into the Estates Team Leader, you will work closely with SP&B colleagues, providing expert advice on all matters related to the effective asset management of the estate. In doing so you will be ensuring the optimum rental and capital return from the management of the regional property portfolio of approximately 150 sites.
You will have responsibility for managing rent panels, ensuring effective negotiations with tenants and advisors for an annual program of rent reviews and lease renewals, as well as management of divestments where identified.
Behind every great pub and bar is a STAR.
We work in a regulated environment, and you will be need to be exceptionally well planned and organised with great attention to detail. You will draw upon your well-honed negotiation skills for a wide range of challenges in this role, including managing Market Rent Options which involve detailed negotiations with our licensees.
This role would pose a great change and challenge for somebody who has managed multi-sites and is experienced in rent review programs (ideally using profits method of valuation and is MRICS qualified). A great part of your role will involve influencing others, as well as coaching and supporting our Business Development Managers on rent negotiations. You will be the champion of Estates matters, taking ownership of in-house training of best practices.
We embrace learning and growth and we anticipate there is scope to develop in this role. You are also likely to bring experiences that enhance this role that are not listed above, therefore not every box needs to be ticked when it comes to experience or skill sets.
Embracing and celebrating diversity is core to HEINEKEN’s purpose of “brewing the joy of true togetherness to inspire a better world”. We believe that people as diverse as our brews – including and not limited to gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, religious belief, nationality, social background, disability and thinking style – enrich our lives and strengthen our business. We welcome and consider applications from all qualified candidates from all backgrounds and industries as we champion a culture of belonging that provides fair and equal opportunities for all.
