  • Managing client communication, reporting and stakeholder consultation
  • Managing projects, including financial management
  • Assisting in the identification and management of project or tender opportunities, including collaborating with colleagues to win work
  • Resource allocation in liaison with the regional team leader
  • Provide mentoring to junior staff to help the team develop

  • A relevant town planning degree and Chartered RTPI membership (or related / equivalent qualifications / professional membership)
  • A sound, in-depth knowledge of planning policy, law and procedures, including the changing planning system at national and local levels
  • Relevant experience of working in planning practice would be an advantage, with a good working knowledge from either a private sector consultant/developer or local authority perspective
  • Experience in the management and delivery of multi-disciplinary planning projects, including working alongside and coordinating a range of technical specialists providing input into planning submissions
  • Commercial awareness and business development skills would be advantageous.
