The scheme is very much at the initial stages with the site being acquired fairly recently. The role will be heavily focussed on the initial stages of the development so the candidate will need to be well versed in planning, feasibility and viability reports and managing design teams.

  • Carry out both feasibility and viability reports
  • Select and appoint external consultants and manage them throughout the project
  • Manage an Assistant Development Manager and Development Manager
  • Work with stakeholders to secure the best possible results for the scheme and area

The ideal candidate is likely to have:

  • Experience working on large regeneration schemes
  • A strong understanding of the planning system
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbally and written

  • A minimum of 5 years’ experience working on residential and mixed use schemes
