Redefine your personal best

With a strong and increasing current workload and continued growth expected, we are now looking for Senior and Principal Planners to join our established Planning teams across England and Scotland. This is a fantastic opportunity to join an innovative and ambitious group with city centre offices in Bristol, Glasgow and Edinburgh, Manchester, London, and Reading.

Stantec is a truly multi-disciplinary consultancy; this role will give you exposure to an interesting and diverse range of projects, allow you to develop new business relationships and deliver excellence for our public and private sector clients.  Our Planning team is critical to our multi-disciplinary approach and is involved in a range of high-profile strategic place, economic, transport, energy, community, regeneration and other infrastructure projects.   

You will be involved in the Planning team's ongoing development, becoming part of our leadership team to build our client relationships so we continue to provide them with market leading advice and services.  You will have project development and management responsibility and will work with other team members to develop their skills.

At Stantec, people are the core of what we do; we are committed to supporting, fostering, and investing in our employees’ successes. We are leaders in our field for investment in staff development, apprentice programmes, STEM initiatives, and the progression of future business leaders. We create exciting opportunities for the development of our staff and, as one of our employees, you’ll be able to maintain and develop your skills, learn and adapt to change, and identify opportunities for growth within our global career framework.

We’ve created comprehensive programmes that help you grow and achieve success through a blended learning environment. These formal and informal methods include internal training courses; eLearning; attendance at conferences, seminars, and events; professional memberships; coaching and mentoring programmes; and on-the-job learning.

Key responsibilities will include:

  • Project support through management, analysis and delivery; and delegation of appropriate tasks to junior staff
  • Mentoring junior staff and colleagues
  • Maintaining and building positive client relationships, helping to capture new opportunities

About you

Degree-qualified and a member of the RTPI (or equivalent), you will have experience in a planning and development environment, with strong understanding and experience of public and private sector development and the planning system in either England or Scotland.

You'll be highly conversant in development management, strategic planning and other aspects of planning including public and stakeholder consultation and will use your strong networking skills to help attract new business opportunities.

Stantec is a top tier global consultancy, working with our clients and communities in the UK for many years.  We have consistently been at the forefront of planning, design and delivery of infrastructure in the UK. With offices across the UK, Stantec has a strong reputation for its work with public and private sector clients on a diverse range of high-profile infrastructure and development projects.

At Stantec, our promise is to design with community in mind. Part of upholding this promise is using our collective passion and expertise to help address the world’s biggest and most pressing problems and to deliver a more sustainable future for our communities. We are committed to tackling climate change and ensuring resilience, whilst delivering benefits for the communities in which we work. In our markets, for our clients, and throughout our organisation, we advance initiatives that support a more sustainable world.

‘We are tremendously proud to be recognised in the top five of the top one percent of sustainable companies in the world and first in North America,’ said Gord Johnston, President and Chief Executive Officer of Stantec, ‘Our leading track record on sustainability is the result of the deep commitment and exemplary leadership of our people across Stantec’s entire global operation. Our teams continue to enhance sustainability in our own operations while also helping clients set and achieve their sustainability goals.’

The Stantec UK Growth Strategy confirms climate change and social value as one of the key areas of focus for our business over the coming months and years, and we are committed to supporting and equipping our staff to take action.
