We are looking a Senior Development Manager who will plan and deliver a supply of new build development in order to achieve the Development Strategy and business objectives within the approved budget, timescales, and design and specification.

About us

We’re one of the UK’s leading housing associations, a member of the G15 group of London’s largest housing associations, with 34,000 homes and 1,200 employees in London and the Home Counties.

Our purpose at Catalyst is to provide ‘homes people love’. That means everything from creating and maintaining great homes, to delivering excellent service to customers every day. We offer a wide range of housing solutions and opportunities for our diverse range of customer needs and requirements including, rent, part ownership or purchase. By doing so, we build more than homes – we build communities.

  • Do you have a successful record of delivering a multi-tenure development programme?
  • Do you have detailed understanding of both regeneration and joint venture schemes?
  • Do you have solid understanding of development appraisals, in addition to tendering processes and contract negotiations?

If so, this is the perfect role for you!

We currently have a great opportunity for a Senior Development Manager to join us on a permanent basis.

To succeed in your role as a Senior Development Manager, you will:

  • Be able to demonstrate a successful record of delivering residential led development schemes and have substantial experience in a similar role
  • Have a high level of project management skills with commercial awareness and the ability to critique and modify financial appraisals and manage costs, quality, timescales and risk
  • Have demonstrable understanding with regeneration schemes and experience of delivering mixed-tenure developments.
  • Be able to anticipate problems and opportunities, taking the initiative to implement required actions.
  • Have excellent communication skills and have experience in tendering and contract negotiation.
  • Work with gravitas, courage, maturity and be calm under pressure, building credibility and respect with internal and external stakeholders.

The UK has a housing problem which affects every one of us, because housing is the foundation of the society we live in. Catalyst is part of the solution and you could be too!
