No two days are ever the same at Goodlord so what you’ll be up to will vary. The pace we move at also means priorities will change and you’ll need to be comfortable with this (we’ll support you!). But these are the things that will be core to your role and will keep you busy.

  • Investigating and suggesting process improvement within the role
  • Other ad hoc projects

  • Have excellent communication, both written and verbal skills
  • You can build effective relationships with everyone - communicating to all stakeholders, internal & external
  • You’re super organised and have proven your ability to prioritise effectively and meet deadlines
  • You’re proactive and diligent with a willingness to ‘roll up your sleeves’, and the persistence to follow issues through to completion

ABOUT US

We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, landlord and tenant. We knew generation rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution.

And we did. Like all high growth companies it’s been a bit of a roller coaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with over 2500 happy customers and exciting new products. We have ambitious plans but with William Reeve at the helm alongside co-founder Tom Mundy and a brilliant team of over 300 talented Goodlordians we are confident we’ll achieve these.

Our values guide our decisions, the way we work, our culture and the people we ask to join the team. We work hard, have fun and support each other. We’re not afraid to make mistakes (we’d never learn if we didn’t) and we’re always looking to challenge ourselves. Our style is collaboration based on honesty, friendship and respect.

And we’re proud to have been recognised as a Great Place to work. No one likes a show off, but we can’t not shout about this. We’ve worked hard to make Goodlord great, and it’s important you know this isn’t just words on paper; Goodlordians have validated this which has led to us being accredited:

  • 9th in Deloitte’s UK Technology Fast 50
  • 10th Great Place to Work in the UK large-sized businesses 2022
  • 23rd Wellbeing Great Place to Work in UK Large- sized businesses 2022
  • 18th best workplace for Women in UK large-sized businesses 2022
  • 13th best workplaces for Tech in UK large-sized businesses 2022

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options Goodlord provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Goodlord is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
