Land Manager

This team is responsible for identifying and sourcing the best locations for new developments. It’s fast moving and, in today’s climate, extremely competitive and commercial in its focus.

 

While we need to be commercial and competitive in bidding for sought after land, we also need to be imaginative in identifying other possibilities – such as land that currently doesn’t have planning permission. It’s a complex area of our work, and one that’s under intense commercial scrutiny and pressure. It’s also the lifeblood of our business, which makes this team’s work even more vital and far-reaching. Entrepreneurial and imaginative in your thinking, you’ll need to be a good assessor of risks, and an even better relationship builder.

 

SUMMARY OF THE ROLE

A qualified land professional with first-class contacts, you’ll be well-versed in all the sales, commercial, technical, design and legal aspects of land purchase. More than that though, you’ll have the business acumen and innovative mind needed to spot development opportunities that others may have overlooked. A skilled negotiator and networker, you’ll also have the influencing skills to drive deals through – and to keep us in front throughout the land appraisal and bid process.

  • Delivery of major complex residential schemes up to detailed planning consent
  • Sourcing and securing of new land opportunities, both on and off market, including short to medium term options
  • Engaging with local communities and local authorities in pre-planning application discussions
  • Liaising with registered social landlords to deliver affordable housing
  • Managing an existing portfolio of projects/opportunities
