The Opportunity

Do you want to make a real and tangible difference to the housing options for our future customers and work in a high performing team which is expanding to deliver more homes for retirement living?

We have a target to deliver 5700 new homes by 2031 and that’s across most parts of England and with a real focus on Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and Newcastle areas. Whilst we have had some success in these areas we really need more sites for more new homes and that’s where you come in. You will be joining a successful team on Land Managers and a business with a clear direction and strategy for growth

So whether you’re looking for something different, more rewarding, exciting or all three, Anchor are recruiting to a Land Manager role in the North of England which will combine the best of agile working, with flexibility and travel.

The Role


Responsibility for identifying new and existing land opportunities which are perfect for retirement communities and which will enhance and enrich the lives of older people.


Your role will include the negotiation with land owners, agents and local authorities the submission of offers and managing the purchase of land and securing vital planning approval to enable us to achieve our ambitious growth targets. We have a team supporting the process but you need to be in charge and drive the process


You will be responsible for securing developments up to and including planning that, when completed and occupied, make us and more importantly our customers and family proud to live in an Anchor scheme.

Our Values are important to us and they shape the way things get done in Anchor. The right person will be Accountable, Respectful, Courageous and Honest in every aspect of their work and reflect the values we live by.

We’re looking for people with good technical knowledge of the residential and/or land market and understanding of development challenges. A proven record of accomplishment with 5 years+ at self-management level and a RICS, CIOH, CIOB, RTPI (or similar) qualification is important but not essential.
