Jess Watts

Development Manager, Home Group
YEP London

By day I do my bit to tackle the housing crisis by working as a Development Manager for a Housing Association. This means buying and building new homes with a focus on real affordability, without compromising on high quality design. By night you’ll mostly find me eating, drinking, or singing – in my east London community choir (it’s good for the soul!). I joined the YEP Committee in December 2017, inspired by the opportunity to help get young people from across the industry together to share ideas, bolster knowledge, and meet others who are working towards the same goals.
