Job Details

We are partnered with the planning division of a well established property consultancy, based in Manchester. The business has a number of offices nationally, but still maintains that close-knit feel. They have an excellent track record across all disciplines and have gone from strength to strength through the last few years. Their national town planning team is one of the UK's best, with clients across a great variety of sectors including retail, industrial, education, public sector, infrastructure, mixed use and town centre regeneration.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a successful and lean team working on an enviable and diverse pipeline of projects, with enthusiastic junior colleagues as well as industry-leading Partners, who are hands on and involved in every project. They are a friendly team of professionals with a proven track record of supporting and developing their staff into senior property professionals with strong reputations in the planning sector.

Your responsibilities will include (depending on level):
  • Manage planning applications through the development process.
  • Write the detail on reports and planning documents or manage juniors in doing so.
  • Meeting clients and liaising with key stakeholders.
  • Appraising potential sites for clients and doing pre-application meetings and work.
  • Keeping up to date with changes in planning policy.
  • Doing business development at the more senior level, and mentoring junior team members.

Ideally you will:
  • Be MRTPI or equivalent.
  • Have at least three years industry experience, in consultancy, client side or in a local authority.
  • Strong commercial understanding across the wider sector including planning.
  • Be an excellent communicator with good technical and writing skills.

This really is a brilliant opportunity for the right person, and with their pipeline ever increasing, the role will give exposure to more major clients and be an excellent challenge. You will be part of a growing, dynamic and highly experienced team, with excellent prospects for career advancement, and working with a flexible, hybrid working approach.

Please apply here or give me (Tom) a call on 07897 074 637 to discuss. My client is looking to find the right candidate as soon as possible - so if in doubt, do get in touch. I also have other clients and roles that may be of interest.

If you do not hear anything back within one week, please assume that you have been unsuccessful on this occasion, but I will retain your details for future roles.
