I am delighted to have partnered with Fusion Students on a retained basis to recruit an Acquisition Manager. Fusion is a growing and dynamic PBSA developer, who will suit someone that is driven by buying sites and rewarded lucratively.

  • Work effectively as part of the Acquisitions Team.
  • Proactively source acquisition opportunities by gaining a comprehensive understanding of sites / buildings within those markets.
  • Active involvement in the planning process for new acquisitions as well as any other areas to enable Fusion to bring forward sites.
  • Assist with any sites that Fusion are disposing of.

What you need

  • Experience and track record in acquiring land or developments in city centres.
  • Preference PBSA experience however candidates will be considered with backgrounds in BTR, Hotels and High-rise schemes etc.
  • Passionate, self-motivated, and keen to learn and develop their skills and experience.
