Due to continued expansion Devonshire Homes are seeking to recruit an additional Land Manager. This is a full time position and will report directly to the Head of Land and Planning.
This role is an opportunity for an entrepreneurial Land Manager to join an established company as it embarks on its ambitious growth plans. Working in a small, dynamic team, this role will offer exposure to the Board and offers a real chance to help steer the company to achieve its goals.
You role will be to identify and acquire suitable new development and land opportunities through networking and establishing market contacts. You will feed into the acquisition strategy, due diligence processes and land bids.
In this role you will be a key member of the land team to source land sites and progress the site from pre-acquisition through to post planning and handing the site over to our Technical, Procurement, Production and Sales teams.
You will be expected to be well versed in the strategies required for successful development; from identifying and acquiring sites, developing and optimising layouts and designs to maximise value, identifying and mitigating risks, achieving planning permissions and delivering a comprehensive handover to our department teams.
As Land Manager you will have responsibilities for the delivery of proposed site planning permissions. You will be involved in the appointment and management of a professional team of architects, engineers, environmental, ecological and planning consultants to ensure that when our planning submissions are made all of their inputs are accurate, feasible and will achieve a successful granting of planning.
