The Team

The Development team provides development consulting and certain agency related advice in connection with a wide range of development projects across, primarily the residential and retail sectors. Projects are frequently large and complex in their nature, and invariably require cross-consultancy support from within the Financial Consulting, Regeneration and Spatial Planning, Compulsory Purchase and Planning teams 

The Role

  • Assist in preparing formal reports and valuations endorsing the terms of sale/purchase;
  • Liaison with Local Authorities, developers and private landowners; and
  • Co-ordinating sub-consultants in the provision of technical survey and consultancy advice to support residential-led mixed-use projects.


This person will assist in providing clear direction and development consultancy advice, guiding public and private sector clients through the asset evolution process using planning and market appraisal, development appraisal, funding, legal and strategy formulation expertise. The role frequently involves drawing together and coordinating advice from other business units across the Firm as necessary.

  • Personal drive and ambition;
  • Good written and verbal communication skills;
