The journey of any new Churchill Retirement Lodge begins with the purchase of land.
Our Land Managers and Senior Land Manager therefore play a critical role in the overall success of the business and we reward our Land colleagues with very attractive land buying commission schemes, professional and personal development and industry leading colleague benefits.
As a Land Manager, you’ll also work closely our planning, construction and design teams on a day to day basis. The role is fast moving and sociable; you’ll liaise with Local Authorities, Estate Agents and Land Owners on a day to day basis. You’ll be required to make a minimum number of recommendations to purchase land in line with the Regional Land objectives.
You will support your land team to identify, investigate and appraise all possible sites for development throughout Devon and Cornwall.
Excitingly, you’ll have the opportunity to help the company grow through the acquisition of new sites. You’ll see your efforts rewarded with successful planning applications and customers who love their independent, safe and secure home - knowing you’ve had a part to play in this.
Your duties will include finding new sites for the company to purchase, negotiating the purchase of them and undertaking detailed reviews of settlements.
Hours of work: Monday to Thursday 9.00am - 5.30pm and 9.00am – 5.00pm on Friday. Please note that overtime may be required during peak times.
You’ll have previous Land Buying experience within the property sector, preferably gained with a New Build developer.
You will have the ability to influence decisions using appropriate methods and facts and proven negotiation, communication and organisational skills. You will be used to managing a small team and supporting them through their career and making senior decisions on behalf of the team.
You will be analytical, a driven individual with a hunger for success, will enjoy meeting targets, overcoming challenges and supporting your team.
It’s essential that you’re a competent driver with a valid UK drivers licence as you’ll be spending a large proportion of your time out of the office.

Attractive land commission scheme
Annual holiday entitlement - 25 days + Bank Holidays
