You will either be graduating in town planning or a related discipline.

The main characteristics we’re looking for are an interest in the built environment, self-motivation and a willingness to learn on the job.

Peterborough is a unique combination of a New Town with a historic medieval core that has ambitious plans for the future. It is currently experiencing considerable investment in the city centre, including a new university, and experiencing the growth of new urban extensions on the edge of the city. The enviable parkway and cycleway networks mean you can get around Peterborough in next to no time. Located on the A1 and the East Coast Main Line, we are in a highly accessible location that makes us an attractive location for new business and homes. We have been wearing our green credentials proudly for some years and are developing new environmental projects for the future.

Our friendly team are based in smart new offices at Fletton Quays or working from home. A high level of remote working can be accommodated as we work in a paperless environment. We also offer subsidised car parking, a car lease scheme, cycle to work scheme, private health care and subsidised gym membership as well as a local government pension.
