Villawood Properties

Residential developer Villawood Properties has established a South Australian office expanding its national presence with the acquisition of a multi-billion-dollar suite of Adelaide residential projects.

The award-winning developer has announced plans for five projects that will deliver more than 5, 000 homes over the coming decade.  As a result of this significant expansion and commitment within the State, a newly created opportunity for a Development Manager has emerged within the SA office.

Villawood Properties is well known for its community focus in all its endeavours and has received more than 20 industry awards across community engagement, master-planning, design, landscaping, environment and lifetime achievement.  The Villawood SA project portfolio includes:

  • a successful development partner for the 52-hectare Oakden site – unlocking significant benefits from one of the last large-scale infill development opportunities in metropolitan Adelaide;
  • a 1,700-home development at Gawler Belt, north of Adelaide and part of the Roseworthy Township Expansion;
  • St Andrews, a 700-lot project at Andrews Farm being the first project to launch in November;
  • a premium built form development at Seacliff;  
  • a boutique acquisition at Golden Grove, currently undergoing rezoning investigations.

The Development Manager reports to the Senior Development Manager developing and managing Villawood’s property assets to achieve the company’s strategic and commercial objectives including end to end accountability on smaller projects and a supportive role to the Senior Development Manager on larger projects.  Other key responsibilities include leading project teams, managing critical internal and external stakeholder relationships, negotiating with relevant authorities and preparing reports, budgets and forecasts in line with financial management targets.

Applications are encouraged from tertiary qualified candidates (construction, property development, civil engineering, project management or a related discipline) with a planning or civil construction background and previous experience in managing medium to large scale development projects involving civil or built form design or construction.  Experience managing project teams and consultants will also be required along with well-developed financial skills, a strong commercial focus, sound business acumen and excellent stakeholder relationship building, networking and negotiation abilities.

This is a rare opportunity to join a dynamic and highly respected national land development entity as it continues its growth trajectory and focus on seriously raising the standards for sustainable communities in Australia.
