Raven Housing Trust has a clear social purpose: building homes and changing lives. When you join us as a New Business Manager – where you will be responsible for sourcing and securing new land-led development opportunities to deliver Raven’s growth targets. – you’ll also be focused on delivering a service that keeps our residents and other customers satisfied.

We are a social business, investing in homes and lives across Surrey and Sussex to create and support flourishing communities. Everyone at Raven believes in taking personal responsibility for ensuring that we deliver exactly what we promise – because that’s how you build trust, security and a sense of belonging.

This is a key role within the Development team. You will have a real opportunity to drive forward our ambitions and considering innovative ways to deliver sites. You will be a bold thinker. You will lead on securing sites in Raven’s areas of operation for development and secure planning consents and partnership deals, ready for the Delivery team to procure construction contracts and build out. You will also manage a New Business Project Manager who will be able to support you.

To secure this exciting opportunity, we’re looking for a professional, flexible and commercially savvy individual who has land buying experience for residential development (affordable, private or both) and experience of contract negotiations, managing projects through the acquisition and planning process and financial modelling.

An excellent communicator, both verbal and written, you will have strong networking, negotiating and interpersonal skills, while a sound understanding of planning law, process and practice and the Development process across affordable housing and market sale delivery is also vital.

Most importantly, you share our values: earning trust by being open and accountable, listening with an open mind, working collaboratively and caring about making things better.

When you join Raven, you’ll become an integral part of a 220+ team of talented, enthusiastic and innovative people who are committed to building communities. We don’t just invest in neighbourhoods, we invest in our people too. We offer good salaries and benefits, a great pension scheme, 27 days’ paid holiday (FTE) plus bank and statutory holidays, sickness benefit and a comprehensive package of H&S and personal development training to enable staff to develop their skills and careers.

Closing date: 2nd September 2019
