A day in the life of a Development Graduate

Emma Quintal and Saskia Rose – Graduate Assistant Development Managers

We start at the very beginning, looking at potential land for development, considering the advantages and constraints of a site and its local area before deciding whether we should build there.

We look at costs and revenues through financial development appraisals to ensure the project stacks up.  Developing attractive schemes with our Design team and taking this through to planning submission, we then handover to our Delivery colleagues to manage on-site construction.  Exciting things we are working on at moment include a community well-being Garden Village in County Durham and a contemporary apartment complex for flexi-rent in central Leeds.  

For us, Home Group really is a great place to work.  Not only do we have a clear structured programme that we can benchmark ourselves against to make sure we’re heading in the right direction.  We get lots of support to develop our skills and progress our career.  It’s a caring, fun and friendly place to work and we have lots of laughs along the way!
