    Nova Academies is a pan-African school network that prepares the next generation of leaders and innovators through world-class teaching methods with an emphasis on 21st century skills. We currently have three schools in South Africa and one school in Nairobi. We are also launching a girls secondary school in Nairobi in 2017.

    Property Development Manager


    About the Role

    We are looking for an exceptional individual to lead the development and expansion of our school properties in Kenya over the coming years. We recently acquired 25 acres within Tatu City, one of the largest developments in Kenya and a Vision 2030 flagship project, and will continue to develop the site into a state-of-the-art campus hosting more than 3,000 students. We will also begin acquiring and developing additional land to launch five additional schools across Kenya over the next two years.

    As the Property Development Manager, you will lead the development of these new and existing campuses. You will identify optimal new parcels of land for our schools through exhaustive searches, careful analysis and skilled negotiation to secure attractive pricing. You will then coordinate the design of the campuses and facilities with internal staff, architects, and other experts and contractors. Lastly, you will manage a range of contractors to ensure the construction of all facilities is completed on tight timelines to meet international quality standards. You will also work closely with members of our leadership, finance, and growth teams to ensure that all property developments have optimal financial structures and terms to ensure costs are minimized.

    You will report to Director of Operations and work closely with the Managing Director, Growth Manager and other key staff. However, you are expected to be capable of operating independently, delivering high quality results on tight timelines with limited direction from other members of the team.

    About You

    • You have 5+ years of experience in a rigorous, high-performing professional setting working with real estate and/or construction;
    • You have exceptional people skills and are able to build strong relationships with colleagues and a wide range of external partners, negotiate effective deals, and skillfully resolve conflicts;
    • You have a strong track record of achieving high quality results quickly and can operate independently with limited direction and support;
    • You have an exceptional ability to think strategically and yet you sweat the small stuff—people see you as unusually detail-oriented and conscientious
    • You deeply understand real estate and construction markets in Kenya. You have an eye for real estate design and can maximize the quality of facilities while minimizing costs;
    • Strong project management skills with exceptional ability to manage multiple highly detailed and urgent work streams simultaneously;
    • You are humble and have the highest integrity. You embrace our unique organizational culture and are ready to grow by acting on frequent intensive feedback from your colleagues;

    Does working at Nova Pioneer excite you? If so, we are excited to meet you and hope to speak with you soon to explore whether you are a great fit to join us in building our ambitious vision.
