Senior Roles in the Persimmon Group

Directors in Persimmon's operating companies have the autonomy and responsibility to shape the future of their business

Each regional Persimmon company has a board of directors that is tasked with the strategic decisions and operational management within its particular geographical boundaries.

Each Board has sufficient autonomy to ensure that whilst contributing to the Group, they remain flexible enough to react to their local market and act in the best interests of their business.

Managing Directors

  • The Managing Director has full responsibility and accountability for the profitability of their regional operating business.
  • They will lead a small team of co-directors, all of whom will have different functional responsibilities.
  • Land acquisition, the formulation and delivery of build programmes and the achievement of sales targets are the chief deliverables against which an MD’s performance will be measured.
  • Successful candidates will previously have a track-record in a similar role, but the Group would be interested to her from people who have a depth of knowledge at functional director level and are ready for their first move to an MD’s post.

Operating Company Directors

    A typical Persimmon operating company will have the following board directors:

  • Land Director – responsible for land acquisition, planning, valuations and feasibility. A key role; ensuring a local supply of our raw material.
  • Technical Director – responsible for the all-important behind-the-scenes activities from purchasing, estimating and surveying, to site layout, architectural services and co-ordination with local authorities.
  • Construction Director – formulates the build programme and is accountable for ensuring our homes are built to plan. Normally responsible for the largest number of staff in the company.
  • Sales Director – ensures our homes are priced according to the market and sales budgets are achieved. Responsible for motivating their sales team to capitalise on every sales lead.
