Here at Johnnie Johnson Housing Trust, we are looking for a Trainee / Graduate Development Project Manager to work as part of the team supporting the delivery of the JJH Development Growth Strategy 2018-23.

We’re looking for an individual who has effective decision making and problem solving skills and who can prioritise work load effectively, always putting the best interests of the business and the customer at heart.
