I’m working with a London residential-led PLC developer in finding the next land and development professional. My client has an unparalleled reputation when it comes to quality of design, which has reinforced their brand as a top developer in the city. Unusually, this client is looking for somebody with a consultancy background such as one of the major property consultancies.

In the role, you will be appraising new sites and completing due diligence to work out if schemes are viable and to feed into the planning and development process for forthcoming projects. While this role sits within the Land team, you do not need to source sites, but, you will be key to the acquisition process and landbank. This team concentrates on schemes of over 200 units, so previous experience of working on large schemes would be advantageous.

Key responsibilities:

  • Land and development appraisals
  • Due diligence of sites
  • Viability and feasibility reports
  • To negotiate terms and deal with contracts
  • Assisting projects through the planning process

You ideally will have/be:

  • A strong appreciation for numbers
  • MRICS or equivalent
  • An understanding of the valuations and London market
  • Experience of Argus Developer

I am currently speaking with applicants, so if this role sounds like it is suited to you, then get in touch ASAP.
