We are Churchill Retirement Living, the fastest growing company in the UK retirement house building sector. We are a family-run, privately-owned, financially robust business and we have ambitious growth plans for the future.
We are proud of what we do and the people we work with; and in order to turn our ambitious expansion plans into reality, we will be investing c£250m in land within the next 3 years. We have absolute confidence in the UK retirement housing market and are ready to invest further!
Churchill Retirement Living are a multi award winning business and 2020 we were named the ‘Best Medium House Builder’ at the WhatHouse? Awards and we were voted the 3rd ‘Best Company to Work for’ in the Sunday Times Awards.
This is an exciting time for our Churchill Land Colleagues as we have a clear strategy, agile infrastructure and industry leading planning support.
About the role
The journey of any new Churchill Retirement Lodge begins with the purchase of land.
Our Land Buyers and Senior Land Buyers 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 along with industry leading Colleague benefits.
As a Land Buyer, you’ll work closely with our planning, technical and design teams on a day to day basis. The role is incredibly fast moving, and you will be responsible for investigating opportunities through an extensive network of contacts as well as identifying land opportunities directly through your own efforts of targeted marketing. Our Land Colleagues work the site from identification and appraisal through each stage of the purchase and you will be liaising with Local Authorities, Estate Agents and Land Owners each and every day to maximise your opportunities.
You’ll also have the added benefit of knowing you play a key role in why our customers thrive and fall in love with their new independent, safe and secure lifestyle.
Working as part of a Churchill Land team is like no other opportunity you will find!
You’ll have previous Land Buying experience within the property sector, from either the retirement sector, a mainstream house-builder or land acquisition for commercial and retail. You’ll have a proven track record of success, enjoy hitting targets and will be familiar with all aspects of land purchase in the UK.
There are a range of roles within the Land teams but what everyone here has in common is an unwavering passion for their work, dedication, self-motivation, a hunger for success and the love of working collaboratively to achieve goals.
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.

- Competitive salary
- Attractive Land bonus scheme
- Company car or cash for car allowance
- Annual holiday entitlement plus a day off for your birthday
- Group Personal Pension Plan
- Life Assurance
- Health Screening
- £200 John Lewis vouchers for expectant parents
