Notting Hill Genesis

Can you lead and inspire one of the most innovative business development teams in housing?

Notting Hill Genesis (NHG) is one of London’s largest developers. We’re financially robust and have a fantastic track record of winning exciting new business. We can offer you a unique opportunity to drive the creation of a better London. Our successful New Business Team is motivated by the positive impact that good quality housing has on people’s lives. We have 6,800 homes in our five year programme, 64,000 homes currently in management with assets worth in excess of £19.7bn.

We’re good at what we do and believe we can be even better with the addition of your strategic thinking and proven track record in leadership.

We have high standards. The team you’ll lead works hard in a challenging environment, identifying the right opportunities, creating and securing our future projects by forming the right alliances with commercial organisations. Your collaborative approach and your passion will help you to implement agreed plans aligned with NHG’s values, inspiring and supporting your team to achieve the best cost-effective and high quality results.

We know we need to be creative to stand out from the crowd when we’re bidding. That’s why we’re carefully seeking out more joint ventures and collaborations so we can think even bigger. You’ll represent NHG at a senior level, so you’ll be credible, with excellent rapport building skills and have the gravitas to enhance our reputation. Your negotiation skills will be invaluable in seeking out new business opportunities, and leading and winning large complex bids!

Like us, you’ll be tenacious, and have a strong desire to win, exceeding expectations and targets. You will develop and manage financial appraisals and set up complex legal structures, including joint ventures. You’ll have influence on our strategic direction, so you’ll have both an eye for detail and the vision to see how each new scheme might maximise our overall offer. Finally, you’ll have senior level experience in property development, process and project management, bringing with you a thorough understanding of the issues that impact housing products and businesses.

If this sounds like a challenge for you, we’d love to hear from you.

In return we offer you 25 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), health cash plan, season ticket loan, tenancy deposit loan, cycle 2 work scheme, childcare vouchers, life assurance and a generous contributory pension offer.

Please submit your CV and a supporting statement outlining your suitability for the role via our online applications portal. Please note a supporting statement is not a cover letter, and should total no more than 2 x A4 pages. You will need to address the requirements on the role profile and provide examples of your relevant skills and experience.

Applications for this role close at midday on 22 March 2019. Shortlisted candidates will be required to come in for a half day of assessments week commencing 1 April 2019. These assessments will include a presentation and interview; you will also be required to complete some assessments.
