Town Planner / Senior Planner - (Somerset)
One of our highly-respected Planning consultancy clients is now looking for an experienced professional to join their successful planning team in Somerset. They work on a broad range of projects on behalf of a wide mix of clients.
Working across a diverse client base you will be responsible for preparing site appraisals, development plan representations, submitting planning applications and appeals and advising clients generally. This opportunity has arisen through growing workloads.
As a commercially minded individual you will be supported in developing your own client base and taking the lead on projects with budgetary accountability. You will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with multi-skilled teams on larger proposals.
You will currently be working within a consultancy, a local authority or a residential developer. You will be capable of managing a varied workload and be confident taking on the responsibility for the day-to-day management of projects. Ideally you will have knowledge and experience of working within the residential sector but this is not essential. You will also have excellent communication skills, allowing you to work effectively with multi-skilled teams internally and externally.
You may already reside in the south west or you could be looking to relocate here to enjoy an improved quality of life and live/work balance.
In return for your dedication, you'll enjoy a quality total remuneration package, including contributory pension, health cover and flexible working options. Additional benefits include childcare and retail vouchers, travel insurance and variable holiday. You'll also benefit from great training and development, with support to achieve your career goals. You also get an extra day of leave for your birthday each year.
