About us

For a long time, deposits were the only type of rental security that could be trusted. But with over £5.2 billion locked up in deposit schemes and with it taking months to access them when needed, it’s safe to say deposits are slow and outdated.

Flatfair’s innovative rental solutions means that tenants secure a new home with a small check-in fee instead of paying for a costly deposit, whilst giving landlords up to double the protection of traditional deposits.

We’re backed by Index Ventures, investors in Facebook, Deliveroo and Slack, and one of the largest venture capital firms in the world. Now we’re looking to grow our team as we expand our business into new markets, as well as continuing to innovate our product.

About the role

Our End of Tenancy team is an integral part of our customer journey - it’s the bridge between our landlords, agents and tenants and our product can’t thrive without it.

As an EOT Associate, you’ll manage end of tenancy cases where charges are being made by the landlord against the tenant. You will work closely with all parties to facilitate a speedy resolution to ensure, including where necessary recovering the agreed charges.

  • How we’ll measure success in the role
  • Work as part of a top-performing EOT team to ensure that all end of tenancy charges are managed in line with SLAs and KPIs
  • Manage multiple cases at once, maintaining an excellent standard of service and ensuring compliance with our processes
  • Help tenants, agents and landlords use our platform to manage any charges at the end of a tenancy, including explaining the sometimes complex world of property rules, regulations and law
  • Through the application of all of the available tools, aim to close every case with a successful payment by the tenant of each of the eventual charges which have been allocated so that the landlord is reimbursed in accordance with the tenancy agreement
  • Where charges are disputed, undertake charge reviews so that you can communicate with both parties on the evidence and help facilitate a fair, and reasonable conclusion with all parties. Where necessary, utilise independent adjudication to help establish fair charge awards.
  • Multi skill with some key duties of our Customer Success team so that you are able to support and cover with phone, email and live chat enquiries when necessary
  • This is a fully remote role to be based from home.
