Job Details

About us

We’re Abri, a housing association based in the south of England. One of the largest in fact. We've got 35,000 homes and 1,500 colleagues. And if all our 80,000 residents lived in the same place, we’d have a town roughly the size of Guildford.

We’re a passionate bunch. We think we can make a real difference. Homelessness, poverty, inequality, a lack of affordable housing. They’re all linked. They’re issues that affect so many, young and old alike. And we don’t think that’s right. We want to give people the chance to dream big and be who they want to be. Homes are at the heart of everybody’s lives. And we exist to help make good homes, and good lives a reality for everyone.

About you

We’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and experiences. But we share the same values. It’s these shared values that bring us together as one team.

Our colleagues embrace these every day. Be the difference to our customers and colleagues, always curious and look for better solutions, achieve together by working in partnership with others, own it openly through working with others in an open and honest way, and finally embrace possibility and see changes and challenges as welcomed opportunities.

If you share our values and want to make a real difference in the world, you’re on to a winner and we’d love to hear from you!

Your new role

We're looking for a driven and focused individual to undertake the role of Land Manager within our Land and Planning team.  

You'll be working with the different parts of the organisation to help find suitable Land and Section 106 opportunities but predominantly land opportunities. These land opportunities will be land led/package deals with Abri Build and/or external contractors and also Joint Ventures.

We have some big targets to deliver quality homes over the next ten years and you'll play an integral part in achieving these targets. It's a bonus if you have an extensive network of contacts and experience of building a pipeline of new sites as well as Section 106 schemes.

It's very important that you have a proven, demonstrable track record of securing residential sites of between 25 and 150 homes with or without planning.  We're looking for someone who can secure opportunities within an hours’ drive of our Yeovil office, so experience of working in parts of the South West y and will be ideal. Experience of working for a Registered Provider/Housebuilder/Land Agency with a focus on land acquisition is desirable as is an understanding of the planning process. 

This is an excellent opportunity for an individual who can deliver schemes and work with the team to progress acquisitions for Abri. 

If you feel you have the experience, skills and attitude, we want to hear from you.

​​​​​​​What you can expect from us

We want our colleagues at all levels to be bold, inspiring and not afraid to speak up and be their authentic selves.

Your wellbeing is really important to us, so you can expect a competitive reward package to ensure you and your family are supported at work and at home.  You’ll receive 28 days of annual leave a year (pro-rata for our part time colleagues) with Bank Holidays on top as well as being entitled to our generous pension scheme.

We’ll work with you to help you reach your goals through personal development plans and our in-house People Development team.

Depending on your role you may need to work a set shift pattern, or you may have greater flexibility to choose when and where you work. Either way, we strive to ensure all colleagues have a degree of flexibility to attend life’s important events.

Be yourself

Abri is committed to promoting an inclusive culture. We want our colleagues to bring their individual differences, life experiences and knowledge into the workplace and we welcome their contribution to our amazing company. Everyone is different, everyone is unique.

We’re not looking to add to our preferred supplier list right now but if you’d like to be considered at a future date please don’t hesitate to register on our procurement portal.
