Land Managers - Housing Development (Home Based)

Midlands - Regional roles covering operational areas

£40,580 - £45,089 per annum

People matter here at Platform - We are looking for Land Managers with a passion for regeneration to join us to make a difference to people’s lives and our communities, to help move the great work we are already doing here at Platform to the next level.


These roles are home based, but will work throughout our operational areas (specific patches to be confirmed) - please see our localities map attached.


You will be part of a growing team and will look to acquire housing development land and support Platform in meeting its growth ambitions by utilising other forms of development delivery.


With guidance and support from the Senior Land Manager and Regional Head of Land you will:

  • Oversee and manage planning applications and appeals for your projects to a successful conclusion and in a timely manner.
  • Assist with the identification and implementation of joint ventures and partnerships, with local authorities, housing associations, private developers and investors
  • Be responsible for development projects from inception to a physical start on site. 
  • Identify and secure suitable S106, Package Deal and Additionality opportunities.
  • Co-ordinate and prepare detailed bid submissions on behalf of the group. Negotiate and agree terms with developers, intermediaries and landowners.
  • Identify opportunities to drive construction innovation including MMC, Zero Carbon, Multi-tenure product range design and sustainability.


You’ll love it at Platform because…

…you’ll get to make a real impact. You’ll be responsible for your own projects and service development and the innovations you deliver will help make a real difference.  Our dynamic, ownership-driven culture will help you bring your best, every day.  


You’ll bring - 

Motivation and diligence. You’ll be eager to work within a progressive and busy land team and will have previous experience in the identification of potential development opportunities through a range of methods. Highly analytical, you will have the ability to interpret information, carry out research, analyse complex data and make sound judgements.


Experience of working within a housebuilding organisation is ideal, but not essential. 


Platform Housing Group owns and manages 45,000 homes across the Midlands, with a portfolio that includes social and affordable rent and shared ownership houses. The group has G1 governance and V1 financial viability ratings from the Regulator of Social Housing and was the seventh largest housing association builder completing 1,448 new homes in 2019/20 at an investment of £258m. We are committed to making a real and positive difference to the lives of local customers and the communities they live in.


Working with us is more than just a job. We value the contribution that our colleagues make to our business and offer lots of opportunities for you to get involved - from networking groups through to fun community and social events.


We aim to attract, develop and retain the best people so, along with your generous salary we also offer a great range of benefits. 


The Group is committed to our employees working flexibly where they can and we are keen to attract talent from diverse backgrounds.  If you are interested in this role but would like to explore a different way of working to the standard Monday to Friday, 9-5 approach, then please highlight this on your application or discuss it with us at the interview stage.  After all, we want to attract the best people to work for us and we know that one size does not fit all.


If this sounds like the place for you then we’d love to hear from you.
