Senior or Associate Town Planner

We are partnered with a successful boutique and non-traditional planning consultancy to find a new Senior to Associate-level Planner, working across London and the South East. You will be leading on a number of major schemes across sectors – mainly with housebuilders and SME resi-led developers, but as well as some retail and commercial work among others.

Uniquely, our client has a bursting pipeline of projects for someone to immediately pick up and project manage through planning – with junior team members to assist and delegate some work to, as well as having responsibility of being a trusted senior person within the team. There is no expectation to bring work with them, but keen for someone to join who has the ability to grow and work on the existing client base. There is a real opportunity to move up to Directorship and have shares in future.

You will be involved in (among other responsibilities):

  • Continuing to maintain relationships with clients in providing accurate advice and communicating effectively
  • Leading on projects, assisting in delegating and starting to take on leadership role
  • Deal with pre-apps and manage planning applications through the development process
  • Communicate and negotiate with clients, stakeholders and local regularly
  • Attending meetings for Planning Committee, Consultations and similar events in representation of both the Company and clients through the planning process

You will ideally:

  • Have at least five years within planning- ideally in consultancy but LPA experience will be considered
  • Be a trusted senior and good project lead
  • Be MRTPI or have enough years to submit through experienced route soon
  • Be a strong communicator with excellent written work
  • A network or knowledge of the region

In reward for the hard-work you will receive a competitive salary and benefits package, as well as ongoing training and being part of an excellent team and company to progress you in your career.

Please apply here or give me (Kate) a call on 07749 70 70 60 to discuss. My client is looking to find the right candidate as soon as possible – so if in doubt, do get in touch. I also have other clients and roles that may be of interest.

If you do not hear anything back within one week, please assume that you have been unsuccessful on this occasion, but I will retain your details for future roles.
