The UK has a housing problem. This affects every one of us, because housing is the foundation of the society we live in. Catalyst is part of the solution. You could be too. We’re looking for a Development Manager with experience – and a strong sense of purpose.
Catalyst is one of the UK’s leading housing associations. We’re here to make a purposeful difference, providing housing solutions and opportunities for those who can’t afford a home without our help. We offer a wide range of homes, for rent, part ownership or purchase. And by doing so, we build more than homes – we build communities.
We also work hard to be a great employer, to deliver outstanding customer service and to be a high-performance business. We are absolutely committed to our social purpose, in every part of our organisation. And we always seek to do better.
We’re totally committed to delivering excellent customer experience – being easy, reliable and empathetic in the way we deal with customers, and each other.
Within this role you will lead and manage the delivery of a portfolio of development schemes comprising private sale and affordable homes, on Catalyst procured sites and on developer sites (via s106 agreements), leading and motivating the activities of the Project Team to achieve the build and sales programmes, within the approved budget, timescales, design and specification.
Create & maintain a culture of high performance and continuous improvement. You will create profit in our private sales activities to sustain our affordable homes programme as well as anticipating risks and their impact, exercising sound judgment. You will develop schemes that are marketable, let-able, manageable, maintainable, sustainable, and deliver excellent value for money to customers.
To be successful in this role you will be an experienced project manager with a demonstrably successful and extensive record of delivering development schemes. You will illustrate high-level project management skills with commercial awareness, have the ability to critique and modify financial appraisals, manage costs, quality, timescales and risk.
You will be an effective communicator who demonstrates a high level of inter-personal skills to lead and motivate teams. You will be a target and results orientated individual with an active commitment to achieving high levels of performance.
We’re a Sunday Times top 100 Best Company to Work for. We invest a lot of time and resources in our people because we know it’s our people who will drive our success. If you’d like to join us, and help make a real difference, please get in touch.
