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.
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.
