Our Graduate Development Programme is a two-year learning programme with an aim to develop well-rounded specialist graduates in a chosen business area.
You are a permanent employee from day one and have a real opportunity to make an impact at Cala through executive sponsored projects as well as completing two rotations across the wider business.
You will be given the learning opportunities to develop your core skills and help set you up for success, as well as having a dedicated mentor and support from the wider business.
As a Land Graduate, you will join the Land and Planning team based in the South Home Counties office in Dorking. To be an effective member of the land team you will have to be a confident and adaptable self-starter who enjoys interacting with a range of people.
The Land and Planning team works closely with all the other departments on a daily basis so a willingness to learn and the ability to balance internal and external work-streams will be a necessity.
You will gain a deep understanding of Cala’s product and specific land requirements, quickly becoming a representative for the SHC business in a competitive land market.
With support from the team, you will develop the ability to critique all land opportunities from the early stages including reviewing local and national planning policy, undertaking a deep review of the prevailing sales market, developing a knowledge of the legal process, and understanding development constraints within the build process.
In addition to the project specific work, you will become a key member of the team helping to ensure that the planning databases and site opportunity registers are populated and current, ensuring all land opportunities are picked up at an early stage.
You will also help to organise and attend regular social events with both agents and consultants promoting Cala’s external presence in the market.
Please note that depending on the volume of applications receive, we may close this advert ahead of the closing date.
It is an exciting, dynamic, and fast paced job so strong interpersonal skills, initiative, and a willingness to learn are paramount.
A degree in Real Estate, Planning, Project Management or similar would be useful, but not essential, given the nature and scope of the land buying role so a range of backgrounds will be considered.
... and much more!
