Job description
I am working with one of the leading international property business that has a growing profile of work in the UK residential development market. 

They have an established base in London with a number of projects underway and are now looking to grow a business in Manchester and the wider North West.

We are looking to recruit a head of Land & Development to take over the whole land buying and development process for the new Manchester office

You will have an intimate knowledge of the planning process and know how to project manage planning applications through the planning system.

You will work closely with the internal and external consultants to successful manage the projects through the development lifecycle.

Ideally you will currently be working for one of the leading house builders or residential property developers but I am also keen to hear from senior candidates working in development consultancy.

It is essential that you have 8 years plus land buying experience for large Plc house builders or residential developers and that you have worked in the North West region.

On offer is a substantial salary plus bonus and because of the nature and level of responsibilities in the role you will accelerate your career.
