Director of Development – Gryphon Development, Vancouver, BC – CLOSED

Joanna O'Callaghan


August 2, 2018

Every Gryphon home is unique. From the singular style to the inventive details, each one is a distinct expression of beauty and function. We don’t follow trends. Rather, we follow our passions. We find inspiration everywhere from the communities we serve to the countries we visit. Gardens, galleries, literature, even set designs catch our eye and stimulate our collective imagination.


We also pay close attention to how people interact with their environment and the society that surround them. In doing so, we see what brings joy and what, with some improvement, could bring even greater joy. In turn, we create evocative and endlessly livable spaces. A Gryphon home is where passion resides.


An opportunity has arisen for a Director of Development to join Gryphon. As part of the senior leadership team the Director of Development will be responsible for leading all of Gryphon’s multifamily residential projects.


As the Director of Development at Gryphon you will be involved in the full range of activities in the development process. Including but not limited to land use, securing approvals, design development, community/political outreach, overseeing and managing third party consultants and contractors, working collaboratively across all functional areas such as construction, sales and marketing.


The ideal candidate will hold a bachelor’s degree and have a minimum of 10 years’ experience from a developer, urban planning, architecture, real estate business or a related field. At least some, if not all experience should be within a development management role. An understanding of proformas, tendering processes and a keen interest in design are important. You will display the professionalism required to work as part of a dynamic development team and possess strong project management and communication skills. An eye for detail and an ability to proactively problem solve are key in this role.
