Job Level

This role will place you at the heart of the planning agenda. You’ll be working to influence the legislation, policies and practices needed to create places which are economically productive, socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable. It offers a diverse range of opportunities: from advising government on policy, representing the RTPI at conferences, and training planners and other professionals. In doing so, you’ll meet with and learn from the top experts in planning and the built environment, from major consultancies, public sector, academia and the civil service.

You could be a non-chartered planner who wants to develop in their role and work towards chartered status with support from the RTPI. Or you could be a chartered planner ready to provide expert advice to the RTPI on planning policy in England and work on our engagement with UK Government and other stakeholders in the sector.

This role provides fantastic opportunities to develop your career in planning and policy-making. The role would also provide the skills and experience necessary for a career in private practice, in a local authority or the civil service.

We are looking for a highly motivated and forward thinking urban planner who can engage with our members to develop our policy and to disseminate good practice.  You will have a planning degree and have a minimum of two years practical experience of working in the planning system (ideally in England) and excellent written and oral communication skills.

Please apply via the RTPI website by clicking on the 'Apply Button' with a CV and covering letter.

Please contact Richard.blyth@rtpi.org.uk to arrange for an informal phone conversation if you feel this would be helpful.
