Our client, a leading City practice, are looking to grow their Residential Development team at 2-4PQE.

The Company:

Our client is a leading name in the international real estate space, with a strong presence across Europe, the US, the Middle East and the Far East. With an established reputation across all areas of real estate, they are now at a point where, due to increased workflow, they are looking to grow their residential development offering in London.

Joining a mid-sized team with a high calibre of partners and associates, you will work with household names in the retail and hospitality sector, property investors, funders and international property developers.
