Job Type
A large local authority in the Cambridgeshire area is looking to appoint up to (2) Development Project Managers for an on-going contract

The client has opted to retain a large number of sites across Cambridgeshire which have potential for housing development. Historically these sites would have been sold to developers but the authority now proposes to develop these sites itself and to build and retain a substantial private rented portfolio.

Potentially there are sites for up to 2000 houses in the development pipeline
the client will transfer sites to a wholly-owned Special Purpose Vehicle to manage development and the private rental scheme.

Based in Cambridge and working alongside a multi-disciplinary team of chartered surveyors. You will support in house and other agency staff to implement development projects as their scale and complexity increases.

The development team report to the Investment Risk Reference Group, a cross-party group of politicians, the Chief Finance Officer, the Head of Strategic Assets and the Director of Law, Property & Governance. Because of the scale and value they take a keen interest.

The work will include rapid progression towards the establishment of the SPV, definition of process and governance including procurement frameworks, the identification and procurement of external consultants to provide the delivery of design, planning and construction and preparing the project for implementation when outline planning consent has been granted.

The client is therefore looking for someone with a strong background in property development, preferably in the housing sector, and in the implementation of development projects for private sector housing projects. Also someone with excellent communication and influencing skills, and be comfortable at reporting at all levels within a major public organisation. A high level of project management skills and commercial know how are required.

The Client is looking to move quickly on appointing these posts.
