In response to an increase in candidate registrations for Asset Management roles, combined with clients who are looking for ever more specific skills in this area, Cobalt Recruitment has created a new Asset Management career guide which you can download here. Covering five key areas, the guide focuses on today’s challenges facing Real Estate and Property professionals who want to advance their career.

Nick Howard, Head of Real Estate – General Practice for Cobalt Recruitment, comments:

“Asset Management roles are evolving. We deal with organisations across the world who are looking more intently for a combination of core asset management and analytical and Excel skills, that didn’t used to be as common for property-based Asset Management.”

Cobalt has launched this guide to help jobseekers understand how much the market is changing, and to sense-check what skills they may need in order to progress in their career.
