Abbatt Property Recruitment, an award-winning agency and ARMA Partner of the Year.

Working closely with Managing Agents, Freeholders, Developers and RMC’s, we find and place the people who represent and maintain some of London’s finest buildings. For nearly 60 years, we have recruited on a simple yet effective philosophy; every candidate, every client and every building are different.

We offer four staffing solutions that can be tailored to your building:

Permanent placement

If your business is growing or you need replacement staff, our dedicated permanent team are here to help. Having placed 1000s of candidates in a permanent role and being 25% quicker at placing staff than the industry average you can expect your roles to be filled by quality candidates in a timely manner.

Temporary placement

Whether you require temporary staff to cover for when your own staff are out-of-action or on holiday, we’re here to help.

Filling over 650,000 hours per year, our temporary team can handle a vast amount of bookings and can arrange a candidate to be on-site within a couple of hours of enquiry.

Dual Management

Our specialist service model, Dual Management, is simple; you manage the building, we manage the people.

Outsourcing your staff to Abbatt Dual Management means that we take care of hiring & managing on-site property staff, handling all HR compliance, employment liability and training matters.

Our Account Management team visits sites day and night freeing up considerable time for Property Managers. And in addition, many sites can benefit from a VAT-efficient solution and all permanent recruitment is free which means there are no permanent agency fees.

Abbatt Academy

Abbatt Academy is a classroom-based training programme that seeks to raise the level of service to residents. By using a blended learning method by means of videos, role plays and group discussions, we make sure that the courses are fun and interactive.

The Academy is delivered…

  1. As part of our temporary service. We train all of our concierges with the Academy and require that our candidates pass a sitting exam before being sent out to work.
  2. According to our clients’ needs, tailored to their buildings. We know what matters most to you is the service that your residents experience and by tailoring training to your staff, you can be certain that they will deliver nothing but a 5-star service.
  3. In partnership with ARMA. Targeted at different experience levels within property, the Academy can help property professionals develop their skills within customer service, leadership and HR.

By utilising our HR skills and living and breathing our three core values; People, Property  and Partnership, we ensure the right match is made between our clients and candidates, and we pride ourselves on establishing long-term relationships.
