In 2015, Oyster set up a Land, Development & Regeneration desk to specialise in providing interim, permanent and executive professionals within the Public Sector. One of the major roles we recruit for are Development Managers who are needed for clients across the UK.
Your day as a Development Manager
A Development Manager typically progresses sites from post-acquisition through to post planning, with the expectation to optimise a site as much as possible to ensure the most valuable outcome. They will be responsible for appointing a multi-disciplinary and professional team, such as Architects, Quantity Surveyors, Planning Consultants etc. to ensure that when they submit for planning, all of their calculations, design and initial feasibility work is accurate, to give them the best possible chance of achieving planning approval.
A Regeneration Manager will have the same/similar duties, however more often than not, the land or asset will already be owned/occupied, and therefore the additional responsibility of resident consultation comes into play.
The average pay range for a Development Manager in London and the South East is £400-£500 per day or £55,000 – £70,000 per annum.
We work with various organisations with many interesting and challenging projects. Our clients are very flexible when it comes to interviews and working arrangements.
