The safety of our customers is at the heart of everything we do, and every colleague has a unique opportunity to contribute as we help families, businesses and cargo connect around the world.


We are ambitious for our airports, investing in the infrastructure our airports need to grow beyond pre-pandemic levels over the coming years. We are always on the lookout for new ways we can add value for customers as they travel, as well as seeking opportunities to work smarter and collaborate more. 


We’re all here on a journey ourselves, striving every day to help make air travel smoother, more seamless, connecting more people and goods with the world. As a team, we recognise the importance of what we do, supporting one another along the way. Together, we are the Journey Makers.


The Role:


As a Sitewide Masterplan Manager, your role will be to develop and manage the land use strategies for our airports. This is a key role to realise our growth through developing and maintaining a long-term vision for our land resource, whilst identifying asset value opportunities, consulting with stakeholders, and integrating our infrastructure development plans. The role will also involve developing business cases, and contributing to providing an efficient planning service to the airports, alongside the Planning Managers, managing development risk.

About you:


To be successful in this role you will have experience working with large scale infrastructure master planning and be adept in working within collaborative environments with conflicting demands. You will have demonstrable experience of engaging with and managing a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, balancing complex, competing requirements, and forming recommendations to optimise land use.  You will be able to demonstrate an ability to look at issues holistically and creatively drive out innovative solutions.  You will be results-driven, self-motivated and comfortable managing your own workload within a strong team-working environment.


An understanding of strategic asset management, airport commercial models, and value drivers are all desirable skills, and you will have a relevant professional qualification (e.g. MRICS, MRTPI or RIBA)  or be working towards completing your professional chartership.
