Senior Town Planner

Are you a Senior Planner in the Manchester area? This is an exceptional opportunity to get in with a rapidly growing and dynamic company where you’ll find yourself working on high profile and complex projects.


My client is an ambitious company based in Manchester specialising in Planning and Development schemes across the North West. As a Senior Planner you will be joining their well established midsized team and have the pleasure of working on some of the most recognisable schemes in the city centre.

 This role offers a unique opportunity to work across the whole spectrum of town planning, getting involved with large scale development opportunities and strategic land promotion. Daily tasks will include performing site visits, preparing planning statements, appraisals and submitting planning applications as well as advising junior members of the team when dealing with complex issues related to the planning process. The majority of their pipeline is Residential, Mixed use and Commercial, although they do cover all sectors and have key clients within Retail and Healthcare. With their existing experience of building and maintaining strong relationships, you will be actively encouraged to approach potential clients and look to begin building up your client base by developing your business development skills in order to lead a team in the future. 

You will need to be a chartered member of the RTPI, have a planning related degree and experience in a developer or consultancy role – ideally 3+ years. As this is an ambitious company you will need to be commercially aware and have good client facing skills so you can assist on winning new business and attending meetings. Experience leading on projects is preferable but not essential.

This is an excellent chance to take the next step in your career. With a clear path to progression you will gain managerial experience by assisting junior planners but also working under highly experienced Directors who will offer you the support should you need it. The office has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and hard work is recognised by bonuses, team days out and holidays, as well as a market leading salary & package.

If you’re interested in this role, please apply with an up to date CV or feel free to give me (Warren) a call on 0207 766 9087 / 07449 350 417 /
