Onsite managers are a unique breed of folk that work and live from their home within big community complexes. Extremely special qualities are needed so as to be in a position to do this sort of job. If you have got these qualities, the advantages of the role may massively outweigh the downsides.
So what will be the disadvantages? Onsite managers are constantly interrupted, contacted at odd hours of the day and night, and they are continually handling complaints from folk. Onsite managers are expected to understand anything and everything regarding the complex they manage and they’re always the first point of call for folks with issues about building services, facilities, conveniences, noise issues, and disputes with neighbors. It’s not the complex manager’s role to deal with all of these issues, but as the complex manager you may actually be first to hear stories about it all.
So what qualities must you possess to do this role? Most on-site managers possess qualities that enable them to handle people and issues efficiently. They are usually thick skinned and are “people persons”. Firm but fair when it comes to resolving disputes. Ready to manage many stressful scenarios when multiple demands are placed on them. As an example, when a fire alarm is set up in a building. If you possess these qualities and talents, there are numerous upsides to undertaking a job like this.
Many on-site management positions are lucrative. Income packages are very competitive and in addition managers are usually offered free accommodation including free household bills such as water, electricity, telephone, gas and web access. Most on-site management positions are found in fascinating holiday spots. However, remember that preferred holidaymaker destinations may mean the role is a lot busier than a position found in a non-tourist area in your own city. Dependent on the character of the complex, especially if it’s not a visitor area, there is customarily a lot of downtime. This implies there are occasions when you have a lot of free time to yourself to do whatever you like. Most on-site managers just have to be contactable through cell phone and do not need to be on-site all the time. In addition, since you’re employed where you reside, there isn’t any painful commute to work. Imagine how many hours this would save you throughout the course of a week, a month, a year?
It’s the adaptability and good remuneration linked with this type of role that’s awfully enticing to some people that possess the required qualities to deal with other folks.
