Business Manager 

Location: Shrewsbury, Shropshire 

Salary: Band 12 

Shropshire Council is undergoing a large scale transformation programme aimed at ‘Creating a better future’. Improving the quality of life of local people is at the heart of everything Shropshire Council does. It has adopted a Corporate Plan which sets out the key priorities for the organisation and the county.  

Housing in its widest sense is a key priority for the Council. The Council has established a wholly owned company called Cornovii Developments Limited to develop an exciting pipeline of over 2,000 new homes across the county to fulfil unmet housing need in the county.  With an annual target of at least 250 new homes, the pipeline shall consist of a range of sites, each with its own challenges and opportunities.  Cornovii Developments Limited seek to develop homes for sale and rent and will deliver a mix of design and build and joint venture schemes.  

The Cornovii Development team shall be responsible for delivering the company’s business plan to build the right homes, in the right place to meet housing needs of people of all ages and to support the economic growth of the county. 

In January 2020, we appointed a full-time Managing Director to take us forward on a more commercial basis. In February 2020 Cornovii Developments Limited secured an additional £35m loan facility from Shropshire Council to help the company deliver its ambitious business plan.  Now we’re looking to recruit a Business Manager to support the company in reaching its ambition. 

It’s an exciting time to join us. In the next few years, a number of our projects will be coming to fruition and new projects will be emerging. All of which will help to drive our continued growth.  

We’re always looking for ways to improve. As a Business Manager, you’ll bring energy, commitment, expertise, excellent customer service skills and enthusiasm to help us achieve our ambitions.
