About my job

About my job

I have now been working at Miller Homes in Basingstoke for 11 years and I am the Associate Land Director heading up the Land department in the Southern region. A key part of my job is liaising with a network of land agents, landowners and other developers to identify and purchase land in good locations, which suit the needs of Miller Homes’ purchasers and are therefore great sites for future developments.

After graduating from University, I was approached by Miller Homes’ then Land Director who advised that Miller Homes was opening up a new region and would I be interested in becoming an Assistant Land Buyer on the graduate programme that was running at the time.

No day is ever the same. I travel a lot with the role around the south of England and meet people from a variety of backgrounds, and one of the best aspects of my job is when you buy the land, which, of course, is the lifeblood of the business.

If anyone is looking at getting into the industry I would suggest they try their hand at everything and don't be afraid to make a mistake; it’s the only way to learn.
