CBRE Development Monitoring is a dedicated team of development specialists based in London advising on over £3billion of development.  The London team is complemented by teams of specialists operating from the other UK major centres, together providing UK wide coverage.  Uniquely, CBRE Development Monitoring is supported by CBRE’s platform of real estate professionals and experts spanning a multitude of real estate disciplines allowing us to bring deep subject matter expertise to our development monitoring service.
The Role
CBRE are seeking real estate development specialists to advise our clients on development delivery risk.  You will be advising real estate stakeholders such as funders, investors, occupiers and joint venture partners on their interests in development schemes.  Our clients include the leading banks, institutional investors, blue chip occupiers and landed estates.  The schemes that we advise on span the core asset classes of residential, offices, retail, hotels and industrial and logistics, ranging from the low seven figures to £500m+ in value.
You will typically be advising our clients as part of a full initial review of development proposals, reporting and advising on all aspects of the delivery of a real estate development (developer credentials, financing, appraisal budgets, programme, design, statutory consents, third party legal agreements, site investigations and construction commercial set up) and identifying development risks - with our advice feeding into the structuring of transactions.  This is then followed by monthly monitoring of the development, reporting on progress and how the various risks and challenges in the development process are being managed.
The role requires direct liaison with clients, developers and their professional teams and as such, excellent inter-personal skills are key.
The role affords the opportunity to meet clients and develop business for the firm.  This includes liaison with wider CBRE colleagues working in other departments to leverage and collaborate on market opportunities.  With such a breadth and depth of wider real estate service lines, it enables us to expand the client service offering – adding more value to our clients, increasing our business and growing our people through the enhanced learning opportunities this approach creates. 
Continued learning and development in real estate and development is key and opportunities for this will be provided.
The role is London based (CBRE’s City or West End offices) and the schemes we advise on from the London office predominantly fall within Central London and /or within the M25.
If you have an interest in real estate development, then this is the role for you!
