Cobalt are thrilled to be partnered with a busy and growing SME residential developer and contractor, hiring a senior team member within their Central London office. Working primarily within the care home space, this role will be a key one in their continued expansion, strengthening further in the sector, as well as within the residential-for-sale market.

Your role will be to identify sites with the potential for acquisition - either with or without planning, within London and the Home Counties. Whether this identification is through agents or off-market, you will need to have experience in negotiating these deals, being adept at leading on conversations with landowners and other stakeholders.

The established and successful team are lean, yet experienced in both the identification of sites, obtaining of full planning permission of care home and residential-led sites throughout the region. This role is partly through growth to specialise further, but also due to a team member relocating.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Searching for viable sites through contacts, software, such as LandTech.

  • Maintaining and growing a contact book of landowners and agents,

  • Meeting with landowners and stakeholders.

  • Negotiating land deals and drafting Heads of Terms with lawyers.

  • Working in conjunction with planners in the team and externally on the ongoing promotion of sites signed up.

You will ideally:

  • Have at least five years within land, ideally with a track record in care homes.

  • Be adept at negotiating and a track record in securing sites.

  • Have a strong knowledge of the patch.

  • Be a team player and a confident communicator.

In exchange for your joining and dedication to the team, you will receive a competitive bonus and package, and will reap the rewards from collaborating with a successful regional team.
