Careers within Strata

The strata sector in Western Australia is rapidly growing and this means there are plenty of opportunities for people to build a successful career in strata management.

Imagine a career where you....

  • could do what you loved in a rapidly growing and evolving industry
  • could develop skills in the areas of people management, relationship building, financial planning, budgets, cash flows, public speaking and communication
  • could become a member of a growing organisation that will provide you with ongoing training, support and assistance
  • will be generously financially rewarded

 If you’re an organised person with good communication, time management and problem solving skills who enjoys working with people and delivering great customer service, then a career as a strata manager might just be for you.

Here’s how you’ll progress through your career:

Step 1 - Start undertaking general administrative tasks to understand the basics of the industry and how strata schemes operate.

Step 2 - Move into a strata assistant role where you’ll have the opportunity to work one on one with a strata manager and start taking on strata management tasks under the guidance of a strata manager.

Step 3 - Move into a trainee strata manager position, where you’ll develop your skills as a strata manager while working in the role with mentoring from senior staff. During this time you are encouraged to work towards achieving Accreditation which is a nationally recognised qualification that acknowledges strata managers with a certain level of education, experience and profressional development.

Step 4 - Achieve Accreditation and move in to more senior strata management roles which may include taking on the management of larger and more challenging strata schemes.

If you already have experience in relevant disciplines and possess the necessary skills and attributes, you may find that you are able to move very quickly through these steps.

What do you need to get started?

There are no qualifications formally required to be a strata manager in Western Australia however it is a complex and challenging role that should not be attemped without first undertaking relevant education and gaining workplace experience.
