Development Manager






Job Type




Job Summary

Well established developer and property company seeks to bulk up delivery capacity.

Our client has owns and manages a diverse portfolio of buildings worth several billion rands. The majority of these buildings have been developed by the group, and all major CAPEX or expansion / redevelopments within the portfolio are also conducted by the small but highly experienced developments team. They are looking to create additional delivery capacity as they have a number of retail expansions and new build projects on the cards. To this end they are looking to appoint someone with a construction related degree, on-site construction experience as well as good exposure to consulting / development project management who they can mold into a fully-fledged Development Manager. Although you will start off running existing projects, they will pull you into pre-contract tasks in order to teach you every aspect of building a feasibility, as well as structuring agreements to ensure the company is investing in only the most promising projects with minimal risk. In a business which already holds land and which is approached regularly to JV, there is no need for you to go hunting for deals. But you must be able to add immediate value to project delivery and be able to display promising aptitude for packaging your own deals in future, backed by your stable work history and excellent academic results. 

A minimum of 5 years and a maximum of 11 years would be considered in this hire. Although Pretoria based, projects will be all over the country and considerable travel needs to be possible for you. Whilst someone who already has development experience would be considered at a slighly higher salary than is advertised here, this is not a role for a Senior Development person.
