To be an effective member of the land team, you have to be confident and enjoy dealing with people. You will need to work closely with all the other departments within the business to provide information and the justification to purchase Land. It is an exciting, dynamic and fast paced job and good social skills are paramount.
If we pay too much for the land, or the terms of the deal do not suit our needs, we won’t make a profit on the site and we risk damaging our business. The Land teams are always on the look out for the best deals and are often competing with other developers to meet the business’ appetite for land.
Where appropriate and beneficial we encourage our employees to attain professional accreditation with governing bodies such as RICS.
