We have a unique opportunity for an experienced planner to join our Hove office as a new Senior Planner or Principal Planner (dependent on experience). Whaleback is an up and coming planning consultancy and is at a critical stage of growth having gone from strength to strength despite the current uncertain economic climate during the pandemic.
We are looking for a dynamic, self-starter who can hit the ground running and take on this more senior role in the company to support and be part of its rapid growth.
The type and complexity of work will be varied with access to a wide range of projects across the company. The focus will be on the preparation and submission of planning applications for proposals from replacement dwellings to strategic greenfield developments and mixed-use regeneration sites. It will also involve a range of other responsibilities including client liaison, consultancy advice, site appraisals, planning policy analysis, appeals and enforcement work. The right person will work independently with confidence on their own projects as well as assist the Directors with more complex work.
Whaleback has achieved a strong presence in Brighton & Hove and the South Downs National Park and is rapidly expanding its reach across the wider south east. The company and our consultants team have an excellent reputation locally for our knowledge, diligence and success with planning applications and appeals. We have some new exciting projects and big plans for the future.
We offer excellent opportunities for career progression and CPD is actively encouraged.
Candidates should have 3-5 years’ professional experience in the public and/or private sector with a relevant qualification. Chartered Membership of the RTPI and private sector experience is seen as a distinct advantage.
