An opportunity has come up for an experienced Land Director to join a fantastic team with a leading plc Housebuilder

The region will produce c650 units this year, with a remit to expand to 800 in the short term and this is an outstanding opportunity for an experienced land and planning professional to devise and implement a land acquisition strategy to deliver that growth, with backing for significant land investment to underpin their strategy.

Key Responsibilities: -

The Land Department is made up of a Land Manager and a Land Buyer, whilst on the Planning side there is a Senior Planning Manager and a Planner, and we need a strong leader to provide focus, guidance, and discipline to get a capable team back on track. Ideally, we are looking for someone who is strong in both disciplines, but will consider someone who has a pure land focus and a strong network of contacts throughout the local area.

With a drive and determination to succeed, the ideal candidate will have a proven track record at Director level, adding their experience to a relatively new Regional board team. We are looking for someone with strong people skills, comfortable with coercing and leading, but also mentoring, helping and supporting individuals.

From the very top of the business, there is a genuinely adhered to culture of ‘doing the right thing’ whether that is with staff, customers, contractors, or anyone else they might deal with. It is a key tenant of the business and it is therefore imperative that the Land & Planning Director fits this cultural mould.

What’s in it for you?

This position represents an incredible opportunity to drive forward a settled land and planning team. With backing to succeed in an ambitious land remit, you will lead your team to buy land and achieve planning on sites that will have a major impact of the future growth and development of the regional business.

The employer are a company that passionately believes in developing their people, always promoting from within wherever possible. With a large number of regional offices, opportunities abound for the career minded individual and success in this position will not go unrecognised.

The post offers a salary level which will ensure we are able to attract industry leading professionals. In addition to basic salary, on offer is a generous benefits package which includes a high level of achievable bonus, attractive pension, and substantial LTIP’s.
