City & Country is a family-owned business originally founded in 1962. The Group is the market leading heritage developer in the South and specialises in restoring and converting historic and Listed buildings into unique dwellings of exceptional quality and character.
The business has grown significantly over the past five years which had been recognised by being listed in The Investec Hot 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies and The Stock Exchange's 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.
The work which City & Country undertakes is exciting, complex and challenging. Quality and adding value is at the very centre of everything the business does which is why the business is recognised as a leader in its field. This success is in no small way thanks to the hard working individuals we employ as without them the company simply could not grow and continue to move forward.
For that reason we are always interested in hearing from bright, enthusiastic and passionate individuals who would be an asset to our growing business.
From surveyors, technical coordinators and buyers to sales executives and customer service operatives. We offer a wealth of opportunities for committed people to demonstrate their skills and extend their knowledge in a friendly and challenging environment.
We take enormous pride in our team and value each individual for the skills they bring to the business, encouraging them to progress and succeed throughout their career at City & Country.

Angela Day, Lettings & Sales Coordinator
“When I first joined the company I never dreamt that 7 years down the line I would be responsible for the day to day running of our Rental Portfolio. During my early years at City & Country my secretarial role varied between office and site based work. Then 3 years ago I was fortunate enough to be offered the opportunity to take on the day to day running of the Rental Portfolio and quite honestly I have thrived in the business since. There is a great deal of responsibility in the role, and I appreciate that the directors trust me enough to have allowed me to make the role my own.
City & Country reward hard work and dedication with opportunities to further your career and better yourself, being a family run business I believe this gives staff the ability to shine and progress.”
Nick Racey, Technical Coordinator
“Having worked at City & Country for over 20 years I can see that real investment has been made in training and supporting our teams, the directors have taken on board our feedback and comments and the subsequent improvements to our systems and procedures are paying huge dividends.
I am really pleased that the Directors have listened to the feedback from the team – looking to the future has never been so exciting.”
Joan Penrose, Receptionist
“I was first attracted to City & Country when I first saw some of the fantastic developments the Company built. It’s a great achievement that so many of the old and Listed buildings City & Country have developed are preserved with so many of the original features intact so that future generations are able to enjoy them rather than they fall into “rack and ruin”. Although I am based at Head Office I have been given the opportunity of visiting several of our developments at various stages of their completion where I was able to witness first hand just how much work goes into restoring the buildings.
My Role is incredibly varied which makes it so enjoyable and encompasses dealing with a wide range of interesting people and projects – you never know what may come next!
I joined the Company 10 years ago when the business was much smaller and it’s been an absolute pleasure to see how much we have achieved over the years. I'm looking forward to see what will come next.”
