Who We Are

At City Relay, it’s no secret that we love property. From architecture to design to furniture, it’s what we live and breathe. As experts in the London property market, we’re shifting the landscape, bringing back premium rental experiences and maximising property potential. We’re also doing it in a sustainable way — better for our city and the people that live in it.

Our sister company City Relay Solutions is London’s number one outsourced B2B operations provider for recognised brands in the short term rental and accommodation sector.

What makes us unique to our customers?

We believe London’s renters should have access to comfortable, flexible and functional homes. Likewise, we believe our partners should be able to manage their portfolio hassle-free, and with optimum yield.

To achieve this, we’ve combined unparalleled property expertise with smart, innovative and proprietary technology to build a radically different experience for residents and property owners. The experience is shaped around a flexible lettings model, combining short and long-term stays — benefiting everyone involved.

On top of this, we’re the only management company providing a full, end-to-end service. We carry out all operations in-house – everything from personal check-in’s, smart pricing, marketing, account management, contract and compliance management, housekeeping, maintenance and much more.

We’re also committed to going green and have introduced a number of initiatives across the business to meet our sustainability goals from eco-friendly partnerships and amenities such as compostable coffee pods to electric, carbon neutral vehicles.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for a friendly, proactive and dedicated individual to join our team as a Reservations Coordinator.
