A community developer is an urban planner who is responsible for assessing housing needs and revitalization of projects within a city. They work with city planners in surveying and tracking needs and establish plans for implementation after getting community input. They also supervise projects managers, track project processes, and issue reports to their superiors. Community developers assume full responsibility for all community development department's services, including a comprehensive review of general planning.
Community developers work closely with zonal officers, building inspectors, city planners, and land development managers to efficiently execute their roles. A successful community developer should have considerable knowledge and experience in the field, attention to detail, critical thinking skills, networking skills, and excellent communication skills.
Community developers work full-time 40 hours per week from Monday to Friday between 9 and 5. They may work additional hours and during the weekends to handle emergencies.
