You will be working for a Housing Company from their Warrington based office working as a Land Manager acquiring development sites across the region. This is a fairly new office and also a new arm to the business, so you will be working within a very small team on Residential and Commercial developments across the region which includes the Midlands and the North West. It will be important that you are a people person and very approachable given the nature of the role and also the environment of the office itself.

You will be working closely with the planning team in order to achieve maximum contribution and delivery across all land purchases and in order for land targets to be met both quarterly and annually.

As a Land Buyer, you will be responsible for sourcing, analysing and purchasing sufficient land and sites for residential development whilst also being very mindful of cost and profit that can be extracted. Whilst doing this role you will maintain a high profile with external property contacts and building upon those relationships throughout. These relationships include local authorities, agents, land owners and developers.

You will carry an important level of responsibility when acquiring land and this goes hand in hand with having good subject knowledge and market knowledge in relation to competitor activity and development opportunities and sites. You will need to be comfortable negotiating land acquisition and putting offers and proposals together, whilst being mindful of annual budgets of forecasts. All associated responsibilities associated to this role must be adhered to at all times including company and employee policy adherence, improving the image of the company and adhering to health, safety and environmental policy throughout.
