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?  There is a huge need and demand for our range of new homes and its an exciting growth area for the future.

We have a target to deliver a minimum of 5700 new homes by 2031 and that’s across most parts of England and in particular areas of the south such as Hampshire, Kent, Berkshire and Sussex growing on our recent successes such as Rochester Riverside and new schemes with McCarthy and Stone. 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 South of England which will combine the best of agile working, with flexibility and travel.

The Role


Responsibility for identifying new and existing land opportunities within the affordable and private sale market which are perfect for retirement communities and will enhance and enrich our customers lives


Your role will include the negotiation with landowners and agents the submission of offers and managing the purchase of land and securing planning approval 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.

The Person

We need drive, determination and passion; someone who is willing to go the extra mile to achieve the right outcome for the organisation and more importantly for our customers.

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 (private and/or affordable) 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.
