This Land™ is a Cambridgeshire based developer, passionate about great design and architecture. W e build high quality homes and help drive the delivery of new communities across Cambridgeshire and the surrounding counties in the east of England.

We set new standards for future developments through a design-led approach and by considering modern methods of construction and new technologies to deliver high performance homes efficiently and safely. Our customer's homes are designed to successfully blend the old with the new to ensure they are fit for the future today, whilst being in keeping with their surroundings, reducing environmental impact and maximising affordability.

This Land's shareholder is Cambridgeshire County Council. Our partnership with the Council provides financial stability and ensures that together we can focus on the regeneration and the creation of homes of exceptional quality for the local community.

We have a different model to a traditional development business. We challenge accepted thinking to create a journey for our team that's full of opportunity and purpose. Our values, purpose and culture are given equal billing and emphasis from the cleaner to the boardroom. We know our brand draws its strength from a team that's made up of different individuals who all feel a sense of ownership and responsibility for our success.

It may not be new thinking but it's at the heart of who we are, what we do and why This Land™ is a place where everyone should love coming to work.

Are you a Non-Executive Director capable of providing independent counsel and objective oversight to our team?

Independence from the Executive Directors and senior management team is of the upmost importance. As our Non-Executive Director, you will provide effective counsel and objectivity to the board, viewing the company and its operational issues from a broad perspective. You will bring a wide spectrum of experience to the board. With an in-depth knowledge of financial, legal, and operational systems and be capable of providing valuable insight and contacts to the business.

Our NEDs provide general counsel and a wide strategic perspective through contribution to board meetings across Audit and Risk, Remuneration and Nomination, Finance, and Investment and ESG Committees. As Chair of our Audit and Risk committee, you will be a strong, independent, and competent communicator and experienced leader, with financial experience and a clear understanding of the committee's focus on risk management and financial oversight.

An important and integral function of the Independent NED will be to help to expand our networks, external contacts, and opinions. In some cases, you will be called upon to represent the company externally. You will focus on strategic company matters, helping to inform the Company's strategy and engage with the Shareholder, and will not stray into operational executive direction. This approach will ensure impartiality and objective, independent counsel to the board.

You will have significant experience of running a financially and operationally complex business at MD, CEO, CFO, COO or Partner level, with the connections, skill set and gravitas to help This Land™ reach its goals. You will have a blend of personal qualities and the communication style that inspires confidence, with a diplomatic approach and the ability to work with a wide range of stakeholders.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an Independent Non-Executive Director looking for a long-term opportunity to provide counsel to a business that will challenge accepted thinking, a market innovator that will make a real difference.
