A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CHECKOUTS CLERK

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CHECKOUTS CLERK

 

Are you interested in becoming a Checkout Clerk? Or maybe you’re just interested in what those people in the little Thornley Groves smart cars do… Either way, we have asked our Checkouts and Inspections Junior Team Leader, Jordan Simms, to give you the lowdown on a day in the life of a Checkouts Clerk.

 

“Our day begins in the office where we get informed of the apartments that we will be visiting that day. We travel all around Manchester City Centre, sometimes we will find ourselves in the quirky apartments of Northern Quarter, the deluxe penthouses of Spinningfields or the busy hustle and bustle blocks of Deansgate.

 

Once we have our diary we plan our day, using our time wisely and productively, taking into consideration the surprises that the day may present. We hop into our tiny smart cars and whiz around the city to our various appointments.

 

We enter each apartment not knowing what to expect, some apartments are left immaculate and sparkling and others… not so much. We use our extensive knowledge of the industry and our role, to investigate any issues we find in the property and address these in our reports.

 

All of those hours playing Cluedo finally pay off when we have to put our investigative hat on to try and solve the case of “who done it?” with the issues that we find. Sometimes the answers are simple, other times a debate is raised within the office, conflicting opinions often break out amongst the team creating an exciting and passionate atmosphere.

 

We come into contact with a variety of Landlords and Tenants, each of which will challenge and push you to further develop in your role. These people rely on us to help and advise them every step of the way in order to get a result that each party is happy with. This is where your negotiation skills come into play.

 

Every day is different in the Checkouts department. If you’re ready for the challenge, and consider yourself a Sherlock, a Columbo or maybe a Miss Marple then enquire for more details on how to join our team!”
