Capital Properties Ltd is a property management company with a revolutionary approach. Based in Greater Manchester, but operating across the UK, it manages mixed-use estates, from grade A office space to art deco buildings and even the odd warehouses.

Born from requests to replicate what it achieved at the Spinningfields development in Manchester, Capital Properties tailors its services for each space, using a combination of events, marketing, social media and commercialisation to build communities around its developments, turning ‘places’ into destinations. It’s this unique approach that has seen it grow quickly and serve clients like: Allied London, Ask, IM Properties and Salford City Council.

Group Management Accountant, Jaspreet Walia. Began using Hiring Hub in July 2013 and has posted multiple vacancies across various departments within Capital Properties head office, including: Building Manager, Head of Events and Marketing, and an IT Manager. Jaspreet had this to say of her experience of Hiring Hub.

“We began using Hiring Hub originally because, like us, it had a revolutionary approach to doing business. It was different from the traditional models within recruitment and that appealed to us. To us, its marketplace model made sense.

“Originally we posted a couple of vacancies and we saw results almost immediately. To give an example, five days after posting the vacancy on Hiring Hub we had arranged the first round of interviews, so there was plenty of activity.

“I generally engage a few recruitment agencies on each vacancy and respond to their queries, via the Hiring Hub website, myself. During busy periods, however, I sometimes don’t have the time to get back to recruitment agencies straight away so I just give my Account Manager at Hiring Hub a call and she will speak to them on my behalf, which is a big help.

“Before I upload a new vacancy I also tend to speak to my Account Manager, just to run through the job spec and get some feedback regarding the salary and any other specific details to do with the role in relation to the job market.

“On the whole, Hiring Hub works extremely well. We fill our vacancies and quickly. What’s more, I’ve been delighted with the level of customer service that we’ve enjoyed. There seems to be a real focus at Hiring Hub to communicate with customers and ensure that their experience is a positive one.”
