This is an unrivalled opportunity to be involved in a wide range of projects, from hospitals to libraries, commercial premises to residential properties. We’ll support you to develop yourself including opportunities to become chartered and we’ll give you access to our tailored learning and development programme too. We have five planning hubs across the country; London Borough of Barnet (our joint venture known as Re), Norwich, Manchester, Newcastle and Belfast and we support flexible, home working.  Apply now and you’ll make places and spaces around the UK the best they can be. 

What you’ll be doing:

  • preparing and presenting evidence on appeal for clients

  • negotiating with applicants and agents to obtain a high quality outcome

  • positively supporting and sharing your knowledge with your team

  • getting involved with service improvements to make your team as effective and efficient as possible

  • providing high quality advice to your clients and the public.

What we’re looking for:

  • membership of the Royal Town Planning Institute

  • relevant experience in a previous position and experience working as a private or public sector planning officer or consultant

  • the ability to manage your own time and meet challenging deadlines

  • excellent knowledge, understanding and application of current and emerging planning legislation

  • the ability to get to remote building/construction sites.

What’s in it for you?

  • A competitive basic salary

  • 23 days’ holiday with the opportunity to buy extra leave

  • The opportunity to take a paid day out of the office, volunteering for our charity partners or a cause of your choice

  • Company matched pension, life assurance, a cycle2work scheme, 15 weeks’ fully paid maternity, adoption and shared parental leave, paternity pay of two weeks…and plenty more

We recruit and develop our people based on merit and their passion for creating better outcomes, and we’re committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
