Senior Land Manager

I am working with a privately owned house builder in Buckinghamshire who are looking to recruit a senior land manager to complement the existing team.
The role would focus on identifying, negotiating and acquiring new sites in Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Berkshire and the M25 fringes. You would report into the Land Director and have the ability to run your own diary.
You will have a portable book of contacts in the residential development agency world and have a demonstratable history of purchasing housebuilding sites in London and the home counties. 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 experience of land buying for house builders or residential developers and that you have worked on patch.
My client is offering £70k – £85k plus package and strong bonuses.
