We are looking for a Senior Planner or Associate with strong experience working on residential schemes within a consultancy, that is now looking to make the transition to a client-side role. Alternatively you may already be working in a similar client-side role.

Key responsibilities of the role include:

  •  Carrying out planning appraisals of sites, assessing their suitability
  •  Unlocking both immediate and strategic residential development opportunities
  •  Building a good understanding of current and emerging national planning policy
  •  Leading and liaising with architects and other consultants

It is essential that candidates are:

  •  Have experience of working on residential schemes
  •  An eye for detail but able to think strategically too
  •  Used to working with minimal supervision and have an ability to use one's own initiative
  •  Have excellent communication skills, both written and oral
  •  some strategic land experience is ideal but not a pre-requisite


This is a fantastic opportunity for a motivated and experienced planning professional  to propel their career to the next level within a desirable client-side role. Our client is offering a very competitive salary package (circa £55,000 - £65,000 - depending on experience). You will also receive other additional benefits including a car allowance.
