Residential Development Recruitment

Alderpoint Partners understand the importance of quality Residential Development Recruitment. Over 11 million people live in cities or high-density urban areas in the United Kingdom, and that is on the rise. From 2001 – 2011, city centre living has increased by over 37% – and has not stopped since then. 

Building in city-centres and built up areas requires a certain set of skills and backgrounds due to the more complex nature of high-rise construction. Often referred to as non-standard development due to the bespoke nature of every project that is built – they do not use standard house-type designs like housebuilders, and is a more difficult job. 

Most city-centre developments tend to be mixed-use, this is usually manifested in residential developments with commercial or retail use on the first few floors – this is to satisfy planning laws. 

Due to the nature of more complex build methodologies and multiple uses of the building, these developers require a very specific background and experience. Also the nature of the stages of development tend to differ from housebuilding as well, further reinforcing the need for a specific set of skills. 

Developers often use main contractors to perform the construction part of the development process, unless they have a contracting arm. Understanding the relationship between a developer and a contractor allows to pinpoint what skills exactly are needed by the clients we deal with. 

We have experience recruiting for various residential developers and mixed-use developers in major city centres particularly but not limited to Manchester and London.

We have experience of recruiting for the likes of Berkeley Group (St James and St William Division), London Square, Crest Nicholson, Dorchester Living, Joseph Homes, DeTrafford Estates, Renaker Build & Select Property and have a track-record of placing individuals in land, commercial, development, build, and sales.

Examples of roles we have successfully headhunted on include:- 

  • Commercial Manager 
  • Development Director 
  • Planning Manager 
  • Marketing Director 
  • COO 
  • Finance Manager 

Each job and search campaign are different – We advise the best proposal to suit your business, market conditions and the timescales involved and then create a bespoke approach to your requirements.  

Property Jobs

With increasing urban population density, the number of property jobs on offer is also rising, with a demand for skill-sets specific to city-centre development. Alderpoints Partners have years of experience in this area, mainly in larger cities such as Manchester and London. We understand the special nature for the relationship that exists between contractors and developers and only offer quality property jobs and exemplary candidates.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Dan for the past 3 years. Dan supported and placed me into my first interim role at Ricoh. During my 13 month placement Dan continued to keep contact with me and the client to ensure there were no issues. He has a very personable nature and really understands the importance of building relationships with not just the client but also his candidates. Although my placement finished nearly two years ago we are still in regular contact. He is one of the best recruiters I have had the pleasure to work with and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
