One of the UK’s most well established fashion retailers, who also have a significant global presence, are recruiting into their very well regarded Leasing team. They are looking for someone to join a very collaborative and energetic team, and take responsibility for your own geographical region of the UK portfolio.
The role involves setting the strategy for your region (alongside the Head of the team), taking responsibility for sourcing new stores, extending existing stores, or negotiating a move of store within an existing Centre.

You will also negotiate lease actions for existing stores, including lease terms, extensions, rent reductions, kick outs and terminations.
A key part of the role includes being fully engaged with the regional market, ensuring the portfolio is competitive in the area, and ensuring the competition is mapped.
