Assistant Development Manager or Development Manager

My client, a very busy housebuilder based in North London is looking to bring on an Assistant Development Manager or Development Manager with a background in doing land and development appraisals and reporting on the numbers/viability of sites that the Land Buyers bring in. This business buys sites without planning, typically unconditionally, and then after planning gain – the sites get passed to Delivery teams to take from there.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Development appraisals, viability, and feasibility studies through modelling tools such as Argus
  • Land appraisals and site visits
  • Manage numerous residential-led developments from inception to completion
  • Manage planning applications through the development process and liaising with local authority officers and key stakeholders

The ideal candidate will:

  • Ideally have 18 months – 8 years’ worth of experience in a Development role
  • Be numerate and have experience with feasibility studies, land appraisals and planning
  • Be commercially astute and driven
  • Be interested in working for a social housing provider

This is an excellent opportunity for someone who has worked with one firm, possibly a larger PLC business and wants more ownership over projects and – with 10-20 sites going at any one time within the team, with this ADM or DM role being an essential part to learn off others and manage your own scheme once up and running.

Please apply here or give me (Taylor) a call on (07551 383 230) to discuss. My client is looking to find the right candidate as soon as possible – so if in doubt, do get in touch. I also have other clients and roles that may be of interest.

If you do not hear anything back within one week, please assume that you have been unsuccessful on this occasion, but I will retain your details for future roles.
