Job Details

Senior Town Planner

Competitive Salary


The average person spends 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime.

90,000 hours.

Now imagine if your job was about as interesting as watching paint dry.

That’s 90,000 hours of paint watching.

You could be doing something a lot more useful with those 90,000 hours, like literally anything else.

So, if you wouldn’t spend 90,000 hours watching paint dry, why on earth would you give it up for a job that you do not love?


Now imagine if you are spending those 90,000 hours doing bungee-jumping, or banana-boating, or sky-diving. That’s more like it.

Senior Planners – this is for those of you out there who are sick of watching paint dry. (I promise I’ll drop the metaphor now).

This is the chance to get involved with the London team of one of the biggest, most well-established, most fast-paced consultancies out there. And the bigger and sexier the consultancy, the bigger and sexier the clients.

That means you’ll be turning your hand to planning statements across Central London, anything from complex residential schemes, to healthcare, to commercial, to mixed-use, to heritage issues, to public sector schemes, I could be here all day covering the sheer variety of work.

Plus, as a Senior Planner, you’ll be trusted to run your own projects and take over the day-to-day management of projects.

Not to mention, you’ll be joining a lovely, sociable, buzzy team – which is great now we can actually get out to the pub after work.

So, if you’re an MRTPI Senior Planner, get in touch and I’ll fill you in on some of the details so you can see whether 90,000 hours of bungee-jumping is up your street.

The number to reach me on is 07474 528 851, or look me [Jessica Carnwath] up on LinkedIn.
