Operations Manager

Student Roost is an owner and operator of purpose-built student accommodation across the UK. We’re not quite the new kids on the block, having already created a portfolio of over 17,000 beds and ambition to increase that in the near future; but we’re at the very beginning of building our brand, our culture and our DNA. That makes it a really exciting time to join us.

Already, we’re made up of really good people and are a business who will endeavour, always, to do the right thing, in the right way – truly putting students’ experience, welfare and safety at the top of our agenda.


Our Operations Managers are the magic ingredient we use to deliver an exceptional customer experience; they put the customer centre-stage and make sure the rest of the business does so too. They strive for customer retention and recommendation.

University Walk in Aberdeen has been lovingly designed and crafted by our expert teams, and is our second build to go live. The Operations Manager will lead the day to day running of the 618 bed property, driving the performance of the team, through actionable KPIs and defining and monitoring the customer services, to ensure that our student experience is first class. You will take responsibility for ensuring we fill our properties all year round, with customers who want to stay year after year, creating a vibrant community.

Person Specification

The successful candidate will possess a track record in managing the operations across a comparable environment, ideally in student accommodation, hospitality or leisure. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and strong commercial ability.  The role will suit individuals with a high level of credibility, team leadership and the capability to deliver excellence.
