Working closely with CCO Group, this successful promoter is keen to grow their strategic land team within Central Manchester and wants someone to come onboard to join and grow with the team. You will be working alongside the Land and Strategic Land Director – predominantly on strategic sites, as well as some immediate ones. With the patch being across the North West, successful sites are either parcelled up to other housebuilders or some is kept delivering homes within the housebuilder part of this business. The business also is now working with a partner within the renewables sector – so looking at sites for this use also.

This role will suit someone in a similar role with a competitor either in the region or relocating into it, or someone within a residential development team either in land agency, development consultancy or planning, but interested in or specialising within strategic land.

Your role will include:

  • Sourcing sites through software systems and databases as well as using the land registry
  • Contacting land-owners and reviewing land opportunities
  • Keeping up to date with planning policy and Local Plan changes and involvement
  • Collaborating with consultants and planning colleagues, to work together on strategic land projects
  • Keeping on top of immediate opportunities to review from agents and seeking anything that might add shorter term value

  • Have at least two years in a strategic land or planning role – either in consultancy, client side or local authority role
  • Be a strong communicator with good written work
  • A network or knowledge of the North West – although not essential
