Persimmon Homes Anglia are seeking a Senior Planner and a Planner or Graduate Planner to join the busy Land team in Norwich covering the Norfolk and Waveney region.

As a Planner with Persimmon Homes you will be involved in all aspects of projects from identifying new development opportunities and local plan promotion to securing planning permission for residential led developments of varying scales and complexity.
