Senior Commercial Manager, Independent Regional Property Developer, Hants

£85,000 per annum | South East | Date posted 24 Nov 2017

We are delighted to be retained by Highwood Homes Limited, a highly successful and very well-run regional property developer which is poised for immediate and significant growth. 

Critical to this is the new appointment of a high calibre Senior Commercial Manager who will play a key role in driving the growth of this recently launched business and be responsible for all aspects of financial and operational management.

Part of the Highwood Group, Highwood Homes was formed in 2016 in response to a specific development opportunity. The company will become the new brand for residential development for the Group and is already committed to the delivery of a significant high-profile project in the local area with the first phase delivering over 500 new homes. 

Highwood Homes will act as the lead developer and Highwood Construction will be responsible for the build alongside well-established and robust joint venture partners. 

Prospects for Highwood Homes and the rest of the Group are potentially very exciting as the business develops its significant land interests creating a platform for the business to become a major regional house builder in the South. Group turnover is expected to be c£50m next year. 

The incoming Senior Commercial Manager will enjoy an evolving and pivotal role with a varied and challenging remit ensuring all financial and contractual obligations are met and liaising between the company’s clients and the Highwood Construction business. 

As with all new ventures, the team on joining will be small and the remit will be hands-on.

Candidates should have previously experienced a broad-based commercially-driven role with responsibility for strong financial and commercial controls across multiple concurrent projects.  Responsibilities should also include liaising with and managing multi-discipline teams and fronting first class and effective relationships with joint venture partners, clients and colleagues. 

This experience is most likely to have been gained with a medium sized construction or property development business delivering a range of high quality residential development or care sector projects.

The ability to accurately assess margin, risk and cash flow and to express a sound understanding of the construction process is essential. Candidates should be appropriately qualified in quantity surveying, commercial management or accountancy.
