Acquisitions Analyst

The Company

Hungerford Properties is a fast-growing real estate investment, management and development company with millions of square feet of industrial, office, retail and residential properties in Western Canada. Our mission is to create value for investors, help business owners grow their companies, and build better neighbourhoods for all, through the astute investment, management and development of real estate.  We are an established and expanding team with an impressive track record and proud history. We bring sophisticated investment tools to the Western Canadian market and build award-winning developments. For more than three decades, we have followed a simple strategy: buy well and add value through proactively investing, developing and managing commercial and residential projects. Our company is driven by five Core Values: Ambition, Diligence, Creativity, Relationships and Community, and the people we hire should be completely aligned with these values. As underlined by our values, we set high expectations for ourselves and for our people; all staff are expected to know, understand and deliver on our standards.

Our Approach

We take pride in our approach to doing the work at Hungerford Properties, and we expect all employees to do so as well - we call this approach the Hungerford Way, and it is made up of 2 Key Components:

1. High performance culture - our values based approach to how we communicate and how we act in every situation, the foundation of recruiting, hiring and developing the best and the brightest people

2. Meticulous Process - our institutional quality operating Platform, which includes process manuals, checklists, templates, and repeatable efficient processes.

We leave no stone unturned in the way we go about our work and we demand integrity in everything we do; the processes, supported with checklists and templates, are tools that give us and all of the staff confidence in one another to get the job done to the highest standard, while minimizing risk. We expect that process is followed. Period. Not doing so is not an option. It is core to our operations.

Alignment to the Hungerford Way is essential for all employees; however, we are not saying the way we do things is the only way, we are simply saying that this is the way we work, and we want to recruit people who want to be here because they buy into what we are doing, why we are doing it and how we are getting there, because they are aligned with our vision, values, objectives and processes before even starting the role.

Commitment

We are a company committed to developing long-term relationships with our stakeholders, and we want staff who are also looking for long-term commitment in their careers.

Performance Measurement

Performance at Hungerford Properties is measured both by achievement of individual objectives and demonstration of the values in daily behavior.

Opportunity

We are merit based; if a person has earned trust by doing a good job, there is the opportunity to take on greater responsibility. We are also about impact, not age or experience, so Hungerford Properties is a place where people can grow career quickly if motivated, ambitious and diligent. We are also loyal - if a person is good to us, we will be good to them. Ultimately, this is an opportunity to become part of a team dedicated to success and excellence for those ready to step up.
