Location is integral to the success of most businesses. This is especially true for restaurants, and even more so for those that specialise in fast food. These venues must be conveniently positioned and easily accessible to the public.

The international fast food chain McDonald's is looking for a real estate representative to identify suitable points for setting up outlets. The appointed person will be on the look-out for potential new sites in the market through real estate research; evaluate the economics of setting up shop in such locations; negotiate transactions; compile real estate packages and finalise contracts in the company's best interests.

The ideal person for the job would have a degree in surveying, land management or property-related discipline. He or she will also have at least three years of relevant experience gained at a retail chain, property developer or real estate agency.

The appointed person should be familiar with the Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) Ordinance, Building Management Ordinance, and Deed of Mutual Covenant, as duties range from handling lease renewals to negotiating lease terms and tenancy agreements.

Good communication skills are essential. The successful applicant will handle store issues and requests, and work with various departments, landlords and building managers.

Self-motivation is expected, as the incumbent will be sourcing potential tenants and managing real estate administration with tenants.
