West Lothian


Objective of The Role:

WElink Group owns a site, Heartlands near Whitburn in Scotland. Heartlands is one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe with £650 million being invested residentially and commercially, transforming the area into a hub where both people and business can really thrive.

The balance of the first phase with residential planning of c1,300 units needs to be master planned and delivered for development, with scope for further phases of another 2000-2500 units.

The Heartlands Project Director will be tasked to come in and take control of the site and its delivery.
Reporting to the Chief Executive WElink Homes UK, the Heartlands Project Director will be tasked with running the project under strict control with a clear strategy for delivering value on the remaining consented land and controlling the costs to create this value. In the main, this will be achieved through onward sale of parcels of land to other companies to build on the site, both residential and commercial.

This role will interact with the Planners, Consultants, interested developers, local authorities and the Central Government in Scotland. There are grants and loans available, so the Project Director needs to manage these relationships to ensure they progress the site to a point where WElink can gain a maximum return on the investment.

Essential experience & qualifications:

  • A strong project delivery background within the residential housebuilding sector
  • Experience in delivering major infrastructure projects
  • The ability to lead a team of specialists and consultants will be key
