Seeing new communities take shape. That?s when it hits home.

We have a brilliant opportunity for a Delivery Project Manager (known internally at Home Group as Delivery Manager) to join our award winning Development team.  Did you know we?re winners of the Housing Awards Development Programme of the Year 2018 and shortlisted for 2019!

You?ll be managing our delivery programme for the North West region, managing projects from planning submission through to practical completion.  We have an ambitious target to deliver 10,000 homes and you?ll play a key role in supporting us to achieve this.  You?ll also work closely and collaboratively with colleagues across Development, internal Finance and Legal teams, external partners and suppliers.

You?ll be working across a number of sites across Cumbria including Carlisle, Penrith, Maryport and Whitehaven.  There may also be some require some work in North Lancashire.  You'll be delivering a variety of tenures and innovative design solutions, within our framework of contractors and consultants.  With a construction or house building background, you?ll have experience of managing projects client-side and managing a team of external consultants to deliver projects on our behalf. An understanding of construction forms of contract would be a real advantage.

You'll report to Elsa, our Head of Development and Delivery who is passionate about delivering the highest quality of housing for our customers.  If this is your passion too, you'll really fit in here.

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.

About you

You?ll have experience in the delivery of high quality new homes on-site, delivering multi-site, complex residential-led development projects successfully.  With an in-depth understanding of the commercial aspects relating to housing development, you?ll have a good knowledge of the planning system and have previous experience in financial modelling.  If you have a proven background in planning, regeneration and development activity, including the procurement of contracting partners then this would be the icing on the cake (or should we say the sold sign on the door!).  You?ll ideally be qualified or working towards a relevant professional qualification too.

You?ll need to have a full current driving licence, access to a car along with business insurance cover so you can travel around our different sites. We'll pay you for your mileage.
