These days, every housing Company says that they are innovative but are they really?

At Swan, the proof is in the pudding. We're unique as we've got our own fully integrated in-house construction team working to deliver 10,000 new homes by 2027. We have our own factory that produces modular homes and so innovation is truly at the heart of everything that we do. We take calculated risks and we are not afraid to try new things. Some might even call us trail blazers…

Being part of a Housing Association, social purpose is our mantra. The work that we do can truly make a difference within Essex and East London. We build homes and communities, not just houses, as regeneration is at the core of our growth strategy. Ranked No. 22 in The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Not for Profit Companies in the UK, Swan will provide you with a tailored management training programme and a great benefits package too.


You could be a Senior Development Manager with several years of experience working on a variety of complex and exciting projects, or be finding that you simply have itchy feet from working in your first Development Manager position for the past year or two. Whichever it is, Swan would like to hear from you.

Having already held at least one Development Manager position in housing, you probably know a lot about what these types of role entail. However, for more information please take a look at the job descriptions below.

Additional Benefits Package:

  • Annual Bonus - up to 15% of your annual salary (performance related)

(Psst! - that's around £10,500 based on a salary of £70,000!)

  • Private medical insurance & life assurance
  • Competitive pension scheme
  • 36 days annual leave (Inc Bank Holidays) 
  • Enhanced family friendly benefits, including great maternity and paternity schemes


We hire our people based on personality, not just experience. A CV can only tell us so much, so we ask applicants to answer some easy peasy questions too that will take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete. You'll find the form at the bottom of the page. NOTE:If you are applying during your morning commute via your mobile phone, we'll forgive minor punctuation errors - we are more interested in finding out about you.
