Playing a leading role in securing 10,000 new homes.   That’s when it hits home.

We have a brilliant opportunity for you to join us as Development Manager where you’ll identify and win new development opportunities for the Yorkshire region, supporting us in our strategic priority to build 10,000 new homes over five years.  You’ll be sourcing land and leading on partnering with a focus on identifying mixed tenure opportunities to deliver new affordable and private sale homes. 

It’s a really exciting time to join Home Group!  We are currently undergoing a significant period of growth and change that will enable us to build more homes, independence and aspirations – the vision that underpins our five-year strategy. Our ambition to build 10,000 new homes, be market leaders in New Models of Care and significantly increase our digital capability is in the hands of our brilliant people. 

You'll lead projects from identification up to concept design stage including planning submission and the completion of legal agreements.  You’ll work collaboratively as part of our award winning development team (we’ll tell you a bit more about our awards later) to ensure an effective handover to delivery colleagues.

You'll report to Amber, our Senior Development Manager who is passionate about sourcing brilliant development opportunities, investing in locations that benefit local communities and that meet our customers’ expectations.  If this your passion too, then you’ll really fit in here.

A bit about you

With a passion and drive to win new business, you’ll be well networked and connected with a range of private and public sector partners.  You’ll have a professional qualification in planning, urban design, surveying, building, or a related field along with previous experience with another housebuilder, developer, consultancy or housing association.  You’ll really impress us with your knowledge of the commercial aspects and development pressures relating to housing developments in the region, along with the key planning challenges for the housing sector.  You’ll have a track record of working with local authorities and the statutory planning system to deliver projects.

We need you to travel to sites so you need to be able to drive with access to a vehicle insured for business purposes and we’ll pay you for your mileage.
