Strategic Land Director 

Our client is a prominent real estate company, an expert in investing and redevelopment of complex commercial prime property and is seeking to appoint a Strategic Land Director.   The appointment provides outstanding opportunities and career potential for a master planning expert.  

Innovative Approach to Strategic Land

A new business model will focus on acquiring large-scale blocks of raw land and transforming them through master planning into high quality, sustainable communities. The global investment manager helping create this innovative approach provides the ability to move in the market with agility and confidence. The first acquisition has been completed (c1000 homes). 

The platform’s objective will allow housebuilders to access viable low-risk parcels of land to transform into high-quality schemes without sacrificing sustainability or efficiency – all the while keeping environmental impact at bay. 

Fundamentals required: 

  • Large scale planning application management and coordination of multidisciplinary professional teams – with residential master planning focus
  • Setting and managing budgetary controls and reporting appropriately
  • All elements of director-level planning strategy, negotiation, and planning agreements
  • Gathering commercial data points for input into financial modelling with internal analysts and driving options analysis
  • Land Agreement and Land Assembly capability.
  • You will have the ability to influence at all stages and levels.

Be Amazing | Strategic Land Director

We are keen to speak with experienced development specialists, director level with preferably RICS/RTPI qualifications and the necessary skills to be part of this new team. Your career to date will be working with another developer, house builder or consultancy focusing on delivering large scale complex projects. 

You have the skills and experience to manage any project from start to finish. Your experience in both strategic planning and operational execution, combined with leadership skills, makes you valuable. That expertise will provide confidence in your ability to deliver high-quality projects. And you are finally showing the pride and challenging work that goes into every detail matters.  Additionally, you will enjoy the challenge of sourcing and negotiating new land acquisitions.

Taking a flexible approach to working practices you will be expected in on a weekly basis in our client’s central London office, but this will be determined by important internal strategy and consultant meetings.
