Due to continued expansion of the business Devonshire Homes are seeking to recruit a full time Development Manager. The position would be based at our head office in Tiverton and the successful applicant would report directly to the Managing Director.
This role is an opportunity for an entrepreneurial Development Manager to join an established company as it embarks on its ambitious growth plans. Working in a small, dynamic team, this role will offer close exposure to the Board and offers a real chance to help steer the company to achieve its goals.
In this role you will be a key member of the team to take sites from pre-acquisition through to post planning and handing the site over to our Technical, Procurement, Production and Sales teams.
You will be expected to be well versed in the strategies required for successful development; from identifying and acquiring sites, developing and optimising layouts and designs to maximise value, identifying and mitigating risks, achieving planning permissions and delivering a comprehensive handover to our department teams.
As Development Manager you will have overall responsibility for the delivery of our planning permissions. You will appoint and manage a professional team of architects, engineers, environmental, ecological and planning consultants to ensure that when our planning submissions are made all of their inputs are accurate, feasible and will achieve a successful granting of planning.

In addition to this you will also assist our acquisition team in identifying suitable new development and land opportunities through networking and establishing market contacts. You will feed into the acquisition strategy, due diligence processes and land bids.
