Our client is a provider of high quality social housing with ambitious development plans. They are committed to growing by a third by 2020 and to do this, they need to ensure they have the best people driving their strategy forward. They are currently seeking a Head of Development with excellent networks in the East Midlands to join their team on an interim basis while they view their internal structure.
This is a fantastic opportunity for somebody who is already operating at a senior level to utilise their local knowledge and networks, put a stamp on the organisation's regional programme, and to roll up their sleeves and be involved in the whole development process. You will be expected to focus your team on getting new schemes through the door, undertake appraisals, take schemes through planning and ultimately work towards getting them through delivery and to handover stage.
The Head of Development will have an in-depth understanding of East Midlands residential development, and will have networks with a range of stakeholders including builders, contractors and local authority contacts. We are expecting that the successful candidate will be able to roll their sleeves up and provide authority across the whole development process, and ultimately will contribute to how successful the organisation's programme is over the next couple of years.
We're looking for somebody to start relatively quickly, so if you have the relevant skills and background and can interview within the next couple of weeks, please contact Elise today for an initial discussion on 0203 056 6288.
