  • Experience in preparing, submitting and negotiating a range of planning applications
  • Ability to manage workload, budgets and project co-ordination (with sub-consultants)
  • Enthusiasm, thoroughness, honesty and commitment


This is a fantastic opportunity for a motivated and experienced professional to propel their career to the next level, whilst being entrusted to work flexible hours. Our client is offering a very competitive remuneration package, circa £57,000 - £63,000 depending on experience, in addition to full benefits.
