An exciting opportunity awaits!
We have an exciting opportunity for a full-time Development Manager to play a pivotal role in the delivery of affordable housing across the Province. Based at our conveniently located Burnaby office and travelling to sites when required, you'll be responsible for planning
and managing a diverse portfolio of social housing, group home and special facility development projects from initiation and warranty inspection, to final occupancy.

As a Development Manager, you'll also be responsible for providing assistance to non-profit housing providers and local communities as they develop their housing developments. You may also have the opportunity to work with the Real Estate division on the negotiation of property acquisitions, dispositions and interests of land.

Primary duties include, but are not limited to:
  • Developing project scope, budgets and schedules and working closely with stakeholders to determine where efficiencies, compromises and/or alternatives can be utilized in order to achieve the desired financial outcome for each project
  • Working within a team on the planning and design coordination for various projects
  • Working closely with finance on the financial feasibility of a number of varied projects
  • Reviewing cost estimates and project schedules as well as monitoring budgets with external and internal stakeholders
  • Assisting in the establishment of terms of reference for the selection, guidance, monitoring and review of contracted private consulting firms, as required
  • Liaising with local municipal bodies to ensure the regulatory development requirements are met

You'll be a great fit for this role if you have previous project management experience, ideally related to the development of multi-residential housing. You'll also have a university degree in business administration, project management, land use planning, real estate development financing or a related field. 

Due to the nature of this role, a valid BC driver's license, access to a reliable vehicle and the ability to travel is also required.
