A Vancouver based development company with assets across Canada are currently searching for a Senior Development Manager to lead several projects across a range of asset classes throughout the lower mainland.  The role will be responsible for overseeing several key projects simultaneously and will be tasked with ensuring the project delivery in line with the scheduled timeline and cost.

The Senior Development Manager will report directly into the VP Construction & Development and will maintain full operational and budgetary oversight of the projects in their portfolio. The Senior Development Manager will handle development and construction projects from end to end, taking over from the acquisitions team early on in the development lifecycle and work collaboratively to put together the initial proformas. The Senior Development Manager will then manage all of the development and construction permitting, hiring of GC’s and ultimately the successful hand over of the project.

The Senior Development Manager will work through technical project issues with the team, while working closely with the internal finance, construction, and sales teams. The Senior Development Manager will also manage the tendering process for each site and analyze the tenders to ensure competitive costing.
