Without Land & Planning, our projects wouldn’t get off the ground. They’re the people who acquire us suitable land for new developments. This team also works closely with other parts of the business to create our award-winning developments.
Each of our divisional offices has its own team of land buyers, who use their local knowledge to assess and secure us new plots at a competitive price. Each division is also home to a planning team who are responsible for maintaining our land bank. Sometimes the land will not have planning permission; in these situations, the team will work with our lawyers and technical teams to apply for planning consent. They also analyse our objectives and make strategic decisions about what to do with the land at our disposal.
It’s a dynamic area that will see you playing a pivotal role in Redrow’s growth. You’ll also enjoy real variety in your work and collaborate regularly with our sales, build and technical teams. But perhaps most pleasing of all, you’ll enjoy all the advantages that come from our industry reputation. You’ll be able to build stronger relationships with landowners because they’ll trust you to deliver the right legacy for their land. Likewise, the Redrow brand will also enhance your relationships with agents, customers and contractors.
Day to day I enjoy the variety – working with different specialists to tackle a wide range of planning issues
Now, as a Land Manager, I enjoy the fact that I am playing a key role in the business undertaking a number of influential projects.
That’s the beauty of Redrow. There are so many opportunities to develop and grow.
Life in Land & Planning is a lot more varied than people think. There’s a nice balance between the technical and people dimensions in this role.
Redrow stood out for me because they were a housebuilder with a great reputation. They’re known for quality and have some well-known developments here in the North West.
I joined as a graduate trainee, progressed to Land Director; and now Regional Director - Redrow recognises hard work and dedication.
