Job Details

Everyone loves the backing of a National brand. It’s reliable, safe, consistent, and exactly what you need to further your career and to grow professionally.

But sometimes that means foregoing the familiarity of a smaller firm, and the visibility and identity that follows.

How perfect would it be to combine the two? A solid name in the property world that hasn’t lost its home-grown feel and personal touch.

A unicorn of a job some may say.

Well, I have the unicorn. And that unicorn could be the next step to your Planning career.

The UK’s largest independent consultancy, with a national reach, is looking for 2 new Associate Planners to join their East Midlands team following an epic growth in pipeline of projects from every direction. You’d play a key role in driving forward integral projects, mentoring junior colleagues, and creating your own path of progression.

They pride themselves on their positive approach internal progression, with countless cases of staff growing from Planner through to Director within the company. If that isn’t testament to the value they place on investing in their people, then I’m not sure what is.

With the Managing Director still being as hands on as when the company was born, team outings and company events are very much a big deal. Think marquee garden party’s, away days in London, and a big old festive knees up at Christmas.

Though this is an East Midlands-based team, work isn’t limited to this patch of the UK. They tend to work on a more national basis, pooling together expertise from different office locations on their larger and more complex projects. Your expertise, no matter how niche they may be will be welcomed here, with exposure to projects ranging from residential to renewables, energy and care facilities.

This is an key position where you will provide leadership to the team, being a day-to-day point of contact for both your team and key clients to the business. Rooted in employee trust, you’ll be offered a high degree of client interface, with opportunity to grow your personal brand and contact-base at networking events to promote the company.

There is real scope here to drive forward the footprint of the company with a fab platform to grow your own personal network. Oh, and did I mention flexibility? With flexible core hours and days continuing to form part of company policy, you can rest assured your personal life will still thrive.

If this sounds like it could be the unicorn you’ve been waiting for, do get in touch on 020 7766 9015, and ask for Ettie.
