Ad Hoc recruits two in Liverpool

The Holland-based property management firm has recruited two new staff to its Liverpool office.

The firm launched in the city in November to provide owners of empty buildings with a guardian scheme, which aims to help lawyers, bank workers, nurses, trainee doctors and musicians move into properties which are no longer occupied.

Jay Musa joins as business development manager, with Daniel Walsh joining the team as guardian manager. Meanwhile, Marie Taylor was promoted to manager of the Liverpool office in Lombard Chambers in Ormond Street within the city centre.

Musa previously worked for International Property Sales and graduate Walsh studied a real estate and business degree at Liverpool University.

Marie Taylor, branch manager for Ad Hoc Property Management in the North West, said: "We are getting a lot of interest in our property guardian scheme from companies across the North West and have now taken on a number of empty buildings in the Manchester area.

"As a result we have taken additional office space in Liverpool and recruited two new members of staff. Our next step is to find further working adults who would like to become property guardians."

Among the properties on Ad Hoc's books is a Manchester Rectory in the Ancoats area of the city and a sheltered housing accommodation scheme in Rochdale.

Peter Townley, surveyor for the Diocese of Manchester, said: "The Rectory was rented to a Jesuit order of Monks until a few weeks ago. We always prefer a building to be used rather than to lie empty and become a target for vandalism."

Other clients of Ad Hoc includes Liverpool's Anglican Diocese and Roman Catholic Arch Diocese and Wirral Partnership Homes, which have asked the company to manage a number of their empty properties.
