About the Company/Client/Project:
Our client, a well-known and highly desirable employer, was founded back in 1991 on the simple philosophy of building quality homes that people would aspire to own, located in highly desirable locations. This mission is the cultural heart of the business today and their enviable reputation is built on this approach.
Today our client is one of the best funded property developers in the Country and whilst they are a Public Limited Company (PLC), the key to their success is that they remain independent and create only about 200 new homes every year. They pride themselves on not churning out mass market homes, but rather focus on meeting the demands of people like you, the more discerning buyer, who appreciates something a little more styled. Typically, homes range in price from £150,000 to around £4.25 million.

Degree or HND qualified is preferred but not essential with directly relevant experience being the defining factor.
