We are looking for a Land Acquisition Manager to join one of the most exciting residential developers in the UK. Reporting directly to the board, you will work closely with a team of experts, identifying and securing new urban development sites across their leading brands, which span from Student Resi to Hotels.  

Culture is everything to this business, expect to learn loads, work hard and have tons of fun along the way (think ski trips, sporting events, the best Christmas party going...), plus you will be well rewarded for bringing new and exciting sites to life. 

Key Responsibilities

  • Site finding and acquisition of new development opportunities to meet the growth targets.
  • Develop a network of contacts to bring forward off and on market opportunities.
  • Engaging with key external stakeholders and building strong, lasting relationships that could provide further site opportunities across all Group brands.
  • Preparing new site information reports and presenting new opportunities to the Head of Acquisitions and the wider Acquisitions team where appropriate.

If you are interested in this unique opportunity, you will ideally hold a University Degree or equivalent qualification in Property, surveying and/or planning and Membership of RICS is preferable. More importantly though, you will have extensive experience working within the residential property market and a proven track record of site finding, negotiation and acquisition.

We’re not afraid to do things differently. And by differently that is the human way, the real way, and the genuine, authentic way.
