Since we built our first home in 1969, we've gone from strength to strength, with a team now comprising of 160 hand-picked professionals, who are as committed to developing homes of exquisite quality and design, as we are.

We know our employees are key to our success, which is why we ask every single of our staff to share in our ethos; we don't live for the future, we help shape it.

  • Assist with the technical appraisals of sites
  • Carry out market research on sales values and specifications
  • Regularly monitor relevant local authority planning application registers to identify possible opportunities
  • Assist in the preparation of bids with other land team members.

You will ideally have either studied or had previous experience working within the property sector. A clear and confident communicator who can harness this in negotiation situations. You will ideally have a good local knowledge of the Surrey area and surrounding counties.
