Our purpose is to be an ethical housing developer and a landlord which will benefit society. We believe that work isn’t somewhere you go, it’s something you do. No two days are the same here, and agile working is the norm rather than the exception.

Ready to get up to speed quickly, you'll mostly be working across the eastern part of our development operating area in Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex.

  • You'll work on a range of key projects to practical completion, controlling budgets and handling external contractors.
  • You’ll lead the project team on schemes, making sure that homes are delivered to a high quality and to programme.
  • You'll deliver projects in line with our policies, procedures and standards.
  • Understanding cost limits and timescales, you’ll make sure that you’ve secured all relevant approvals from the Board or Investment Panel.

About you

  • You'll have experience of the development process and knowledge of the construction side of development.
  • You're financially astute and business minded, positive and dedicated to your work.
  • You will be able to use your strong communication and negotiation skills to work successfully in project teams and with housebuilders to deliver quality homes
  • You’ll actively look for, assess and develop opportunities on your own.
