Sunderland’s City Plan sets out a vision for 2030 – of a connected, international city with opportunities for all – and provides the framework for the social and economic regeneration of the city. It also sets out the Council’s investment and development priorities which will see the delivery of approximately one million square feet of modern commercial office space, 5,000 high-quality new homes, significant leisure development, and city-wide infrastructure enhancement.

Major milestones have already been achieved, including the opening of our new landmark Northern Spire bridge, the development of the first phase of the International Advanced Manufacturing Park (IAMP), and delivery of The Beam providing high quality office development at the heart of the city.

The Council’s strategic residential development programme includes Riverside Sunderland which will create a new way of city centre living and help to double the City Centre population, Northern Spire Park which will see around 1000 high quality homes developed on a fantastic riverside site in the shadow of the Northern Spire Bridge, and further development at Potters Hill where delivery of a new 750-home community is advancing rapidly.

An opportunity has arisen for a Senior Development Manager to support the ongoing work and vision.

Applicants will need the following:

• Extensive experience of development managing multiple capital projects varying in value, scale, use and complexity from concept through to operational handover.
