Development Manager

CCO Group are thrilled to be working with this successful regional housebuilder to bring in a Development Manager to lead on projects post acquisition at the front-end of the development cycle. Working with your Land and Planning colleagues, you will be running initially two projects within the Berks/Bucks/Herts region – optimising the planning and gaining detailed permission for another – both north of 1000 units in total, with phases being c200 units for delivery.

Your role will also include appraising potential sites, to taking them through due diligence, planning and design phases, through to handing over to the construction teams internally to deliver – both of these and future pipeline sites.

You will be required to:

  • 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
  • Undertake feasibility and viability appraisals and due diligence.
  • Liaise with colleagues within the department and wider business on matters related to projects or potential projects

You will have:

  • Proven experience running residential-led development schemes ideally within the Home Counties and/or London
  • Strong town planning knowledge
  • Good project management skills, whether it be more front-end of full development lifecycle
  • Excellent communication and negotiation skills

This is an exceptional role for someone with housebuilding experience to push their career forward within an ambitious and successful regional office, or someone moving out of London with large urban extension experience.
