Development Trainer / Consultant
M3 & HATC are looking for a qualified and experienced development practitioner to deliver training courses and procedures, interim management and consultancy. It's a big role, and we are open to recruiting either one person full time with the complete skills set, or multiple people part time with complementary skills as part of a job share.
You will need at least 10 years' experience of affordable housing development, including substantial experience of land-led projects at all stages from inception to completion. You must have a hunger to learn and an ability and enthusiasm to explain things clearly to people of all ages and levels of experience, but mainly those new to development.
This is a new post, created as HATC Ltd prepares to join the M3 group of companies. HATC has provided industry standard training courses and procedures for developing RPs for over 25 years, including the DevProMM suite of procedures. During probation you will be taught how to use HATC training material, and mentored by Andrew Drury, a highly respected industry professional. You will also be given full training on M3's Pamwin suite of development appraisal and project management software.
The role will be expected to deliver at least 60 days' training in the first year, via public courses and sessions for individual clients. The number of days is expected to grow. You will be taught how to train. The training is mostly online, but some in-person sessions are likely - either in a central location or at a client's offices.
During non-training time in the first year you will have the opportunity to be paid to learn, broadening and deepening your knowledge of property development and project management. You will also be maintaining the DevProMM procedures, implementing them for new clients and supporting them for existing clients. There will be occasional research projects to undertake, with the opportunity to publish.
For the right candidate/s - and depending on part time or job share arrangements - we will introduce a variety of interim management or consultancy roles with different organisations, covering and / or troubleshooting. You will see how a wide variety of people do things, rapidly broadening your experience.
This is a rare opportunity to be paid to learn and will be very attractive to those who would enjoy sharing that knowledge with others.
