The Role

We at Radian are seeking a highly talented Assistant Director of Land & Planning to drive through Radian’s ambitious growth strategy and advance our Development directorate.

Reporting to the Executive Director of Development, this is a broad role where you will be tasked with playing a pivotal role in achieving Radian’s objectives. 

The successful candidate will be well-networked and the ability to build and sustain highly effective working relationships with local authorities, house-builders, landowners and co-investors will be essential to success.

Self-motivation in this position is vital; you will be expected to pro-actively seek strategic growth opportunities through land acquisition and development whilst ensuring regulatory compliance and that risk mitigation and value of the projects are fully understood.  

The successful candidate will have extensive experience of land buying, property development and a talent for releasing potential both within project work groups and the teams you will be responsible for, who will look to you for guidance and leadership.  Already operating at a senior level in an innovative and successful property development environment, you will have extensive financial acumen and a proven track record of delivering high quality developments to demanding deadlines.

If you’re the ambitious, success-oriented candidate we’re looking for, we’d love to hear from you.
