A skilled Development Liaison Manager is required to join a pioneering, nationally-acclaimed large-scale self and custom-build housing development scheme in Bicester, Oxfordshire.

Cherwell District Council has acquired a 188 hectare site from the Ministry of Defence that will accommodate up to 1,900 self and custom-build homes, a primary school, state-of-the-art commercial space and offices as well as community, retail, leisure facilities and parks, woodland and open spaces.

This ground-breaking development will ultimately create up to 2,000 jobs and apprenticeships, resulting in significant inward investment and growth for the local economy.

The Graven Hill Village Development Company, as an independent entity, will, in 2017, move into a more exciting, complex and rapidly evolving stage of development which will see increased activity on the ground, with sales of individual plots to private buyers, through to enabling and delivering numerous infrastructure projects.

The in-house team will need to be bolstered and provided with the optimum range of skills to ensure delivery happens on sound financial and commercial foundations. To date the development management support/advice/guidance has come from a combination of external consultants, a service level agreement with the Council’s Build! team and the Operations Director’s experience.

Key Qualities

Drive efficient and cost-effective working through sharing best practice.

Have strong people and influencing skills, determination, and the ability to fully understand detail.

Experience in residential development.

First-rate planning and organisational skills.

A proven, integrated team player who is open to “collegiate” working.

Key words

• Principal relationship with the Head of Development Liaison
• Advocate for Health and Safety compliance
• An educator and helper to the self-builders
