Job Details

Town Planner

£33,000 – 35,000


Your workday can go one of two ways.

You get up at 5am and rush to the station after a quick shower and a cup of slightly burned instant coffee, just to sit on the train for 2 hours and another 15 minutes on the tube.

The rest of your day is spent in a shiny corporate office surrounded by bars with £9 pints which you’re too tired to go to anyway.

Or you wake up refreshed at 7:30, sit and enjoy your cup of tea and a crumpet, luxuriate in your shower, and drive to work with your favourite tunes going in the background.

The office is small and cosy, and everyone knows everyone. Oh, and there’s a dog curled up at your feet.

The work is interesting, your boss trusts you to just get on with things, and you won’t have to re-mortgage your house to go out for drinks.

If option 2 looks up your street, read on.

For all you Town Planners out there, this one is for you. Especially if you’re a Planner looking for the opportunity to work for a small Planning Consultancy, with a great mix of work, a lovely group of people, and a gorgeous location out in Essex.

This is a company who really values their planners and wants to provide the space for you to grow, develop, and take on responsibility.

You’ll be getting the opportunity to work on applications for anything from residential, to commercial, to mixed-use, and anything in between.

You can be MRTPI or working towards it, Local Authority background or Consultancy, this is a role that’s open to a mix of experience.

So if you’re looking to build on your experience and skills in a supportive and flexible environment, this may well be your dream job.

Give me a ring on 07474 528 851, or look me [Jessica Carnwath] up on LinkedIn to find out the specifics.
