Job Description

REF: 13042
Posted: 16 November 2017
Closes: 31 January 2018

The Management Recruitment Group is working exclusively in conjunction with a residentially-led development business. We are recruiting on behalf of a recently appointed Managing Director of a business that works predominantly in partnership with various other bodies. The MD comes from a pure “prop-co” background and is looking to recruit a Development Manager in what will be a new team. Coming from a development background himself, he truly understands the value of the development function. The position is based out of their London Bridge office.

With an ambitious growth drive they will have lots of positions of responsibility that will require filling, such as Project Directors for major sites as well as Development Directors covering multiple projects, and promoting from within is always preferable. Promotion will of course require someone to realise their potential, but the business hope that this will occur sooner rather than later. Having a Managing Director who has come up through the development route can only be favourable in terms of future progression.

The company get involved in housing-led regeneration projects of up to around £70m. This can take several different forms, predominantly as either land finder, developer partner, JV partner or long term partner. The new managing director is a fairly young guy with fresh and modern ideas on how to move the business forward. He has essentially joined the business very recently and this is the first area of the business he is looking to strengthen. They are part of a wider group that also contains an investments arm.

The business have a very strong reputation of progressing from within and speaking candidly, the managing director is a very decent guy. They are not an “aggressive” business as some other developers can be.
