Job Description

I am currently recruiting for an exciting Social Housing provider based within the North West.

The development team have recently started to expand by starting to provide homes for outright sale and market rent, with the profit reinvested back into their core business. On top of this there is also the fundamental need to develop more social housing across the Greater Manchester area.

Identifying and appraising new business opportunities, you will contribute to the Group fulfilling its consultation promises in respect of housing stock condition and actively promoting customer involvement in the work of the development team. Providing a comprehensive development support service to the organisation, you must assist with the delivery of the Construction Client Charter activities and contribute towards scheme design and development procedures.

Acting as the initial point of contact for the Development team for general communications, you must promote a positive image through the development of excellent working relationships with customers, partners, colleagues and key stakeholders and maintain site records and be responsible for plan generation when required.

To be considered for this role candidates must be educated to degree level or equivalent and possess a good level of housing knowledge and an understanding of the housing development process. With previous project management experience and a well presented and professional manner, you must be an active team player and be a confident speaker who is able to promote the organisation at meetings and events. Due to the nature of the role, a full UK driving licence and access to your own vehicle is required.
