How We Work


Croudace Homes Group is an award winning, established house builder constructing skilfully designed homes in the South East. We pride ourselves on our reputation for outstanding quality backed with exceptional customer service. We achieve this through employing excellent individuals who are committed to delivering a first class product.

Unlike other house builders, all of our non building functions are in-house including: land buying, building, quantity surveying, engineering, architectural, interior design, legal plus all aspects of marketing, sales and customer care. This broadens the opportunities for individuals to learn and to develop within the business.

Whatever your role at Croudace Homes, you are part of a team which is contributing to our success. We seek people with a wide range of qualifications, skills and experience in locations across the South East.

Building


A Project Manager/Site Manager has a pivotal role on any development project, with day to day responsibility for managing all aspects of the site. Principally site based, the skill sets required include a sound knowledge and proactive approach to safety, quality, technical details, production and financial awareness. Planning and an involvement with the procurement of subcontractors and suppliers all form elements of the role. Fundamental to the position is the ability to develop a team on site and you need to possess excellent interpersonal skills in order to extract the best from individuals to create a strong desire within the team to succeed. Critically, a construction site is the shop window for the business and standards set reflect the Company as a whole.

Typical Roles: Build Manager, Project Manager, Site and Assistant Manager, Materials Controller, Quantity Surveyor.

Land


Croudace has a constant requirement for suitable housing sites which varies according to market conditions. Working through Croudace's operational area, the land buyers identify suitable sites for development ranging from small sites with planning consent to long term strategic sites covering many hectares. Opportunities through the open market can prove very successful but often the best opportunities occur through “off market” acquisitions, which involve the buyer identifying suitable land or building a good relationship with local land agents. Each site is different and requires new skills, including recognizing what is most important to the land owner at an early stage.

The purchase of development land is very competitive and requires commercial awareness and a high degree of skill in ascertaining the value of land as well as the ability to negotiate. Where a site is to be purchased without planning consent then the expertise to fully understand a site’s planning potential is essential. You will need a sound understanding of all aspects of the industry including planning, design, technical matters, land law and contracts, services, finance and sales. This makes for a varied job and provides many challenges. In addition, excellent communication and social skills, good organisation and an understanding of all aspects of the industry are all requirements for this role.

Typical Roles: Land and Business Development Manager, Land Negotiator, Planning Manager, Strategic Land Promoter.

Technical and Design

As a result, they enjoy a hugely rewarding and varied workload. During the construction stage, the engineers will visit site regularly to monitor the successful implementation of the design.
Design: Designers are part of an integral team including Landscape Architects and 3D Visualisers who create quality homes and environments for people to live in. The designers are a major part of the homes delivery process.

Typical Roles: Engineer, Designer, Technical Coordinator, Landscape Architect.

Our Sales and Marketing team work alongside our Technical, Design and Building Departments to coordinate the many aspects required in constructing and promoting a Croudace Homes development.
