Providing the right homes in the right places for our customers. That’s when it hits Home.
We have a fabulous job opportunity for you to join us as a Development and Delivery Project Manager delivering our supported and specialist housing. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to really make your mark, delivering our new build, refurbishment, and ad hoc acquisitions across our specialist housing development programme.
As our Development and Delivery Manager, you’ll manage and deliver projects from start to finish. These will include supported housing schemes such as new build blocks of apartments or clusters of houses, bungalows and the refurbishment of individual homes with adaptations for our customers who have complex support needs. This is a brilliant opportunity to deliver our supported housing programme that will make such a big difference to our vulnerable customers’ lives.
Carefully managing income and expenditure, you’ll deliver our schemes against key performance targets and successfully manage relationships with developers and contractor partners. This is a great opportunity to expand your skills and experience working across several projects including site identification, project appraisals, completion of legals, planning permission, project delivery and site handover. You’ll manage these right through to the end of the Defects Liability period. Being flexible, adaptable, and able to identify solutions to keep the project on track are the key skills that will really help you deliver your schemes.

It goes without saying that you’ll have experience within the construction sector, project managing high quality new homes across multiple sites. You may be from a Development, Building Surveying, Project Management or Construction Management background, and be looking to gain solid experience delivering high quality accommodation.
As our Development and Delivery Manager, you’ll have a good understanding of the commercial aspects related to housing developments, and ideally some experience in delivering supported or healthcare schemes, but if not we’ll develop your skills in this.
You’ll also have knowledge of the planning system, great project management skills and a fantastic track record in implementing complex schemes successfully, on time and to budget.
You’ll report to Victoria, our Senior Development and Delivery Manager and work alongside John, our Head of Property Development. You’ll help Home Group to be a market leader in the provision of high-quality homes for our customers.
Where and when you’ll do your job
You’ll do your job remotely and from one of our offices such as Leeds or Birmingham. Our team delivers specialist schemes on a national basis, so you’ll need to travel and spend some time away from home, but we don’t expect that to be too regular.
It’s the team’s unwritten rule that you attend the important appointments in life, be it your child’s school play, your partner’s graduation, or to get your new fridge delivered. You can elect to fit these around your working day taking advantage of our agile ways of working. Our focus is on getting the job done, not your working hours.
