An established and expanding developer based in the Thames Valley are seeking a Strategic Land specialist, either at Buyer or Manager level, ideally with experience within the Home Counties.


Partnering with deverellsmith, this successful housebuilder and promoter is keen to grow their strategic land function and wants a good number two to join to bolster the team which is currently a Strategic Land Director. With the main patch within the Home Counties, all over, this developer looks at both immediate and strategic sites to add value to, usually building out but sometimes flipping, but with this team only deals with the Strategic Land.

This role will suit someone in a similar role with a competitor either in the region or relocating into it, or someone within a residential development team either in land agency, development consultancy or planning, but interested in or specializing within strategic land.

Your role will include:

  • Sourcing sites through software systems and databases as well as using the land registry
  • Contacting land-owners and reviewing land opportunities
  • Keeping up to date with planning policy and Local Plan changes and involvement
  • Collaborating with consultants and planning colleagues, to work together on strategic land projects

You will ideally:

  • Have at least two years in a residential development role with some strategic land experience – either in an agency or with a promoter/housebuilder
  • Be a strong communicator with good written work
  • A network or knowledge of the Home Counties – although not essential
  • Have access to a car and a full driving license


You will be rewarded with a competitive package and commission for sites found, as well as an excellent work life balance while being a key part of the growth of the business moving forward.

Please apply here or get in contact with me (Kate) on 0203 056 6282.
