Directorate: Supporting Communities
We currently require a Senior Development Manager to lead on the management and implementation of one or more complex Community Investment programme regeneration projects ensuring innovation, best practice and best value in commissioning and delivery. The successful post holder will deputise for the Regeneration Team Leader and provide specialist professional support and advice to Development Managers across the Regeneration & Development Group.
You will deliver capital receipts, new housing schools and community facilities and secure inward investment in existing housing to provide decent homes. It will be your responsibility to ensure opportunities are maximised to deliver on the ‘Sustainable Communities’ agenda to meet growing community needs and improve the educational attainment and employment opportunities of local people.
The ideal post holder will have a relevant degree in construction, development or regeneration, or equivalent significant experience and evidence of continuous professional development. You will have thorough knowledge of town planning practice, and development and land acquisition practice and housing development standards. Due to the nature of the role you will have project management skills for technically complex projects involving and closely impacting upon residents and other stakeholders. With strong negotiation skills applicable at various stages of a project, you will also apply your organisation and management skills to lead a multi-disciplinary team of employees and independent contractors/consultants on technically complex projects. Candidates applying will need to demonstrate procurement skills to deliver infrastructure and refurbishment projects and will need knowledge of develop and new build. An understanding how regeneration initiatives can be used to address deprivation, access to services, issues around community safety and cohesion will be useful to have to excel in this role.
