Senior Town Planner required for a renowned, design-led consultancy in South Oxfordshire.


The ideal candidate will have at least 5 years' experience gained in the private of public sector since graduating from a degree in a Town Planning field. You will either be a member of the RTPI or close to chartership with plenty of demonstrative experience.


As well as being a well-qualified Town Planning professional, you should have an interest in design-led planning and the desire to work on large scale urban extensions as well as a myriad of other projects of all scales. You should have some experience of planning applications from a consultant or officer perspective, and any experience you have gained from working on strategic sites, new settlements and the like would be valuable (but not essential).


As a Senior Planner, you should already be managing some of your own small/medium sized projects and managing the input of others into those projects. Ideally you will also have been client facing although this is not essential as this skill can be introduced to a candidate who shows genuine commercial acumen. You may currently be in a Planner role and feel ready to step up to Senior Planner level and take on greater responsibilities such as leading and mentoring junior/graduate planners.


The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join an established company and a close-knit, highly professional team in a relaxed atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. The offices are modern and stylish and the outside spaces are beautiful and conducive to an inspiring working environment.


A competitive salary is on offer (exact figures are flexible and dependant on experience and current remuneration) along with a company pension scheme and other generous benefits. Career progression and CPD are second to none and the team enjoy regular social activities along with attending industry events.
