We are working with one of the largest housing associations to recruit two Development Managers to lead on major residential and regeneration schemes in London. The roles are delivery focused but a solid understanding of new business and programme management would be advantageous. Hybrid working option available between home/office.
Both roles include responsibility for project delivery and reporting on a portfolio of contracted and in-house build projects. Reporting skills are essential as your reports will be used to update the business and inform stakeholders of the progress of schemes, ensuring they are ready for delivery within set agreed targets and providing vital information if delayed.
We are looking for people with a thorough understanding of residential development, including knowledge of land and legal aspects, planning, business and financial planning, board approval, funding, and delivery. You will get involved in detail on schemes whilst in the Land and Planning stages to shape and provide meaningful input and involvement to delivery proposals. You will need to be a proactive scheme leader, experienced in managing medium to large newbuild developments.
Both roles require excellent communication, networking and relationship management skills to deal with a range of internal stakeholder teams and external consultants, contractors and developers.
You will need to be commercially focused, an innovative thinker and an experienced problem solver to help to deliver an ambitious pipeline of new homes.
You will be required to assist with the compilation of tender documents and administer build contracts and development agreements. For this you will need exceptional attention to detail and a methodical and logical approach.
Organisation and time keeping is key as you will need to be able to work within tight time restraints whilst maintaining high accuracy and ensure robust document management systems are maintained whilst continuously reviewing ways to identity more efficient/commercial ways of working. Hybrid working available to split between home and office.
