Job Details

Is there anything better than a walk by the coast on a crisp, cold day, followed by hot salty chips, eaten straight out of the paper?

Now imagine combining that idyllic coastal life with a brand new job, in a friendly supportive environment, and you’ve got the perfect graduate opportunity.

Well Planning Graduates, look no further.

What if your office was a beautiful, listed building in Southampton city centre, and you were getting to work as a Planning Assistant in a small friendly team with access to some seriously sexy projects?

A team that’s not just small and friendly, but also massively punching above its weight with its portfolio of work – anything from major residential schemes, high-end hotel projects, nightclubs, retail, leisure.

The whole shebang.

Plus, the team is very close-knit and sociable, and being on the smaller side, you’re never going to feel lost and overlooked.

This is the kind of place that really invests in its team and makes sure everyone feels like they’re getting taken care of, with the salary, experience, and progression that they want.

And being at the start of your career, you’ll be given all the support, mentoring, and guidance you need to get on your feet. Not to mention, they’re more than happy to get you through your APC once you’re ready.

You’ll be assisting the Directors and senior team members on their projects, and over the first six months, you’ll be given the trust and responsibility to start handling your own small planning applications.

Oh, and yet another cherry on the cake – the offices might be gorgeous, but you won’t have to be in every day. Once you’re settled and comfortable, there will be flexible working.

I mean, that’s pretty good.

So, if you’re a fresh off the boat grad, or a year or so in, this is for you.

Look me [Jessica Carnwath] up on LinkedIn, or give me a ring on 07474 528 851.
