Are you an Associate Planner or existing Principal or Associate Director in a Planning Consultancy who is ready for a change?

Do you live in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, North Hampshire or West Herts and are sick of commuting into London every day, especially when it's wet, cold and dark?

Or perhaps you live elsewhere and love the idea of moving to the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside?

Whatver your current situation, you may be interested to hear that a highly experienced and ambitious Associate Director (Principal) is required to join a long-established and successful planning consultancy in Buckinghamshire.


As the firm's exclusive recruitment partner, we are assisting in supporting and growing their business with the addition of 3 new appointments at Director, Associate Director and Consultant levels.


The consultancy can boast a wide range of quality and often household name clients across the retail, residential commercial, leisure, tourism and education sectors, delivering a wide range of services from site appraisals through to applications, appeals and general planning advisory services.


Due to their experience and high attention to detail, consultants in their company regularly succeed where others have failed, gaining approvals for complex and often contentious cases thanks to their legislative knowledge, diligence, positive working relationships and ability to work around problems to the satisfaction of all parties.


If you can offer high quality planning consultancy, are comfortable taking on projects part way through and also have the proven ability to seek out and win new work (in any sector or specialism) then my client would like to meet with you!


In return for your skills and hard work, you will be rewarded with a generous salary and benefits package, tailored bonus structure, professional development pathway, car allowance, a lovely working environment, friendly team and every opportunity to progress further within the business. Promotion to Director with an associated equity package is the expected path for the successful candidate with opportunities to become both part owner of the business but also a key decision maker and driver of the firm's future.


Key candidate criteria includes:

  • 7+ years' experience and MRTPI status;
  • currently in a consultancy role in the UK;
  • proven fee earning capabilities;
  • commerciality and a business-minded outlook;
  • some earlier Local Authority experience would be beneficial (but not essential);
  • real ambition and drive;
  • driving licence.


Buckinghamshire area experience is not essential as this consultancy delivers work across the country for a string of national companies as well as taking on more localised projects. Therefore, relocators or candidates who live in the area but currently commute into London (and no longer wish to!) are encouraged to apply.


If your dream is to have the freedom to pursue work that truly interests you within a flexible organisation who can offer you real progression and long term security, then this could be the ideal opportunity for you and I look forward to telling you more.


If you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity, please submit your CV below or call Claire on 020 7859 4246 / 07983 143 831 for a confidential conversation.

*** Your CV will not be sent to any further companies without your explicit consent.***

At Lewis Davey we offer a specialist, personalised recruitment service to candidates from Director through to Graduate level. We have unrivalled access to a wide range of consultancies, developers and local authorities across the country so even if this role is not quite right for you, please do get in touch to find out how we can help you take the next step in your career.
