Job Details

We have an exciting opportunity for a Planner/Senior Planner to join our vibrant and dedicated planning team, based in the heart of Central Milton Keynes. You will be reporting to the Director of the Milton Keynes Planning team and working across a broad range of projects. We're looking for a professional, ambitious and proactive planner. You will be busy, challenged and well rewarded.

You will be joining a market-leading, multi-national company at a hugely exciting time following our recent rebrand as part of the Tetra Tech family. You will have opportunities to work across our multidisciplinary teams and gain invaluable experience with active mentoring and support to further your career.

As one of the original new towns in the UK, Milton Keynes recently celebrated its fiftieth birthday, is an exemplar of visionary and progressive town planning in action and has one of the fastest growing local economies in the UK. It is a vibrant hub at the centre of the Oxford-Cambridge Growth Arc.

Your Role

Here in MK we work on behalf of both public and private sector clients and we are proud of our diverse range of projects providing you with fantastic opportunities to broaden your horizons and develop your skillset across planning. We provide advice across the entire spectrum of development schemes, from initial feasibility studies through to the submission of large-scale planning applications and appeals. We have strong local and national networks and a collaborative team culture. This, combined with the quality of service we provide to our clients, is what makes us consistently one of the top planning consultancies in the UK.

Working across the team’s diverse project base, you will be responsible for preparing site appraisals, development plan representations, submitting planning (and other) applications and appeals and advising clients generally. As a commercially minded individual you will be supported in developing your own client base and taking the lead on projects with budgetary accountability. Tetra Tech is a multidisciplinary organisation and you will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with multi-skilled teams on larger proposals.

We are looking for a RTPI accredited or eligible Town Planner with proven experience in a similar role. You may be presently working in a local authority, consultancy or for a housebuilder. You will be capable of managing a varied workload and be confident taking on the responsibility for the day-to-day management of concurrently running projects. To be successful in the role you will have the following key skills and experience:

  • Ability to deliver reliable technical input in a timely and efficient way
  • A team player with good people skills, who will thrive in a customer-facing role
  • Be able to demonstrate enthusiasm, energy and the ability to work under your own initiative to meet our client’s expectations and help expand our business
  • Have excellent communication skills, allowing you to work effectively with multi-skilled teams internally and externally
  • Above all, you will have a “can-do” and positive approach to your career
