Senior - Associate Planner
Central London-based, this practice has developed a first-class reputation and impressive portfolio of public and private sector clients. As such, an opportunity exists to expand their team with an experienced Senior - Associate Planner to step-up and take on more responsibility within a small, very profitable and expanding company.
Whilst sustaining and servicing new and existing clients on large-scale, complex projects throughout the UK, you will undertake a strategic role advising on the functional relationship between planning policies and development (although this is not a planning policy role role).

A commercial, experienced and motivated multi-disciplined planner from the private sector will hold the key attributes needed to succeed, although some public sector experience will certainly be viewed favourably.This may be the ideal role for someone currently working for a large property/planning consultancy that wants to work on less developer/financial institutional-based projects in favour of developments and projects for quality and practical need in the built environment.
