ABOUT US

OUR STRUCTURE TODAY


The Development Manager’s early business growth was gained from implementing open source software for talent, learning and knowledge management. We have now extended and rationalised our focuses into a range of symbiotic business operations.

The Development Manager Ltd.

We are a values-driven business entity who see organisational sense in centralising some of the underpinning business tasks required for our different commercial operations: Finance & Legal, HR, Administrative, Infrastructure, etc.
