REF: 16656

Student Roost are seeking to recruit to the crucial role of Development Manager.

Student Roost are a UK based purpose-built student accommodation provider, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Brookfield Strategic Real Estate Partners. Since the business was established in 2013, we have amassed a portfolio of over 20,000 operational beds, and have a significant development pipeline of 4,000 beds with ambition for continued growth.

We’ve all heard ‘if you build it…they will come’; and we believe if you build it right, they will stay: that goes for both our customers and our people. We want to be a stable, welcoming and safe backdrop for our customer’s entire time at University, giving them one less thing to worry about. For our people, we all spend more time at work than we do with our loved ones, we think it’s only right that you do that in an organisation, environment and a team that you love being a part of.

This role is a key hire for our in-house Development function, which forms an integral part of our business as we continue to grow.

The team is already made up of really good people and we’re a business who will endeavour always to do the right thing, in the right way – truly putting students’ experience, welfare and safety at the top of our agenda.

A member of the Development Team and reporting to the Senior Development Manager, the Development Manager will, with the support of the Senior Development Manager, take responsibility for managing new build and refurbishment projects through detailed design, procurement and delivery.

We are seeking an individual with early career experience in supporting and/or leading large-scale capital development programmes in a comparable context. The role would suit an individual that is motivated to progress their career in a client side development role and with a portfolio spanning across the country. Experience of working across capital developments with comparable characteristics (residential, PRS, PBSA,) would be particularly advantageous, but no means essential.

Student Roost offers a compelling employer proposition including a positive approach to flexible working, significant investment in staff wellbeing and development, a very generous pension scheme and annual leave allowance, and family-friendly benefits.
