Development Management Jobs

Real estate is an incredibly multifaceted sector and development managers are essential to many different sectors within real estate. Cobalt can place experienced development managers into roles across this diverse industry: developers, land buyers, property companies, landed estates and consultancy firms.

The most important skill for a development manager is the ability to assess the financial viability of developments. Client-side employers will want a development manager who can spot a development that will be lucrative for their firm and who also has the nous to steer the business away from developments that are not worth the investment. For development managers working in a consultancy setting, the same skills are important as your clients will want the best financial advice possible on their proposed and forthcoming developments.

As with many of the jobs in the real estate sector, an MRICS qualification is preferred for a professional looking to be hired as a development manager working as it is increasingly becoming the norm not only in the UK but it is something that is recognised in the industry in many places worldwide.

Cobalt has a long history, going back almost 20 years, of placing development managers into their next role wherever that may be globally. Cobalt’s clients include specialised companies in the real estate sector who are looking to hire experienced development managers. These clients are in multiple European countries, offering the opportunity to work in a variety of locations.

Working as a development manager for the right employer can allow you to shape the future of the company you are working for and with Cobalt’s specialised clients base, we are likely to have a role that is perfect for you.
