  • Commercialisation of Large-Scale Integrated Developments
  • Salary: cSGD$135-160k per annum + bonus


The Company 

The organisation is a large, multi-sector listed conglomerate boasting multiple successful international business divisions. This includes an award-winning Real Estate Development division at its central hub and which is pivoting towards a new, integrated business model complete with new sectors and solutions. A recent addition to its real estate portfolio is a new team focused toward large-scale, integrated urban planning and smart city development. The company now wishes to appoint an experienced Cluster Development/Program Manager to support the commercialisation of each integrated suite of assets.

The Position       

Located in Shanghai, whilst reporting to the international GM for Business Development and closely collaborating with a Business Development counter-part, the appointed individual will be tasked with project managing the commercialisation process for each large-scale development project. Commencing at the project planning stage through to design, development and completion, the appointed individual will focus on securing appropriate corporate tenants built around specific industry clusters. This will require strategic study and assessment of commercially viable industry sectors (and specific customers) attractive from an economic value perspective and well-suited to large-scale integrated developments. As such, the appointee will drive outreach programmes to build Government and Industry sector networks and relationships, build engagement with interested and relevant tenants whilst also co-ordinating the design and development process. The appointed individual will liaise across multiple government agencies, economic policy agencies and industry partners.

This is an exceptional opportunity for a self-motivated, dynamic and experienced industry/economic cluster development professional to join a well-respected real estate heavyweight whilst playing a critical role in forging long-term commercial success for multiple large-scale, modern urban development projects.

The Person 

Interested candidates are expected to offer a Degree in Finance, Engineering or Business Administration and at least 8+ years’ relevant experience within project promotions (industry cluster/economic development), project/program management and, preferably, exposure to the large-scale integrated real estate development life-cycle. Prior exposure acting as the bridge between Corporates, Government and operational/delivery teams will be preferred.

As the long-term role will be located in Shanghai, the post is open to Singaporeans offering mobility for overseas posting and/or appropriate China nationals. Naturally, interested individuals must offer extremely strong bi-lingual Mandarin and English communication skills and appropriate commercial acumen.
