Do you want to contribute to sustainable, affordable space for artists and creatives? Then we would like to meet you!

What does SKAR do?
SKAR realizes workspace for the creative and cultural sector in Rotterdam. We manage and develop workspaces for artists and creative makers to work, meet and connect. We explore new possibilities to meet the growing demand for suitable and affordable space in the city. SKAR stands for more space for imagination, so that makers can experiment artistically and socially, let ideas grow, use their talents, develop new projects and be successful in them.

SKAR currently has 44 different studio premises in Rotterdam in its portfolio, of which 12 premises are owned and the others are under (long-term) lease. We manage these premises, carry out the (technical) maintenance and facilitate certain services for our tenants.

What will you do?
As Maintenance and Management employee, your core task is to coordinate and execute the entire process of maintenance and management. From notifications from tenants to inspections, from requesting quotes to supervising their proper execution. The goal is to enable existing and future tenants to make optimal use of a workspace for their professional activities. You independently coordinate all daily work processes around the premises, from carpentry or painting, maintenance of door fittings, leaks or other reports.

- You can communicate well with various contractors and external parties and provide feedback to our tenants on progress;
- You evaluate quotes and invoices from contractors and manage the maintenance budget;
- You are responsible for the process monitoring and archiving of quotations, plotted orders and financial completion in a software package (WISH);
- You support colleagues with reports and monitor the maintenance activities;
- You process all administrative work processes around the properties accurately in our database;
- You have contact with our tenants in a way that suits SKAR, deal with complaints in a timely manner and enforce agreements.

Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a proactive, independent and upbeat personality with the following qualifications:

- You have strong communication skills, especially in dealing with and supervising subcontractors and suppliers;
- You have experience prioritizing and coordinating work;
- You are customer, service and quality oriented;
- You work accurately and consistently. You quickly learn new software packages and systems;
- You have a technical or architectural background;
- You are proactive in thinking of preventive solutions for possible technical problems;
- Several years of work experience in a similar position is preferred.

We offer:
- working in a dynamic and developing organisation;
