Building homes. Developing futures.

Are you a commercially focused Land Manager looking to make a difference with a new and exciting challenge?

We are growing our Land and Planning Division across the UK to become one of the country's top 5 builders in the next 3 years, and are offering an exciting opportunity in our Birmingham office for a Land Manager looking to make their mark.

Working directly with the Head of Land, you will be accountable for purchasing land for private open market homes to meet Clarion Housing Group's ambitious target of building 50,000 new homes over the next ten years.

To be successful in your role of Land Manager, you will draw from your experience in the private house building sector to identify new land opportunities and secure planning permission for residential development within two years of purchase.

In addition to overseeing multiple site acquisitions, you will support the creation of new partnerships and joint ventures, and as such you will be required to maintain a network of connections with such stakeholders as land agents, property professionals, funders, and house builders.

You will have a tangible track record of purchasing land and show entrepreneurial flair and drive in getting deals across the line, as well as showing us your commercial acumen and significant experience of operating within a high performing team operating at a similar level within a diverse commercial organisation.

Strong leadership and the ability to motivate your team are essential skills to succeed in this challenging, but rewarding, role. In addition, you will be required to display excellent communication skills, alongside an ability to challenge, support, influence and engage senior managers and other stakeholders.

In return we offer you a competitive salary and generous benefits package in a supportive environment, with plenty of scope for your career advancement and salary progression.
