Are you an inspirational, forward-thinking, residential Development Manager with a focus on delivering to time, quality and budget?

Do you have experience of working at a senior level, successfully delivering a variety of new-build housing projects and regeneration of estates?

Do you relish the opportunity of a new challenge with a progressive Council committed to a programme of high quality, sustainable new homes?

We are looking for an exceptional candidate to take on this exciting and challenging opportunity to join the Housing Development Team as part of the Major Projects & Investment Service at Adur & Worthing Councils.
