Job Details


Penguin Recruitment is delighted to present a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious Town Planner to join the UK's leading Care Home Provider as part of a dynamic team based in Leeds!

My client is the UK's leading purpose-built residential care home developer. With over 30 years of experience and innovation in the sector, my client has a track record of providing excellent services and design.

Due to a busy period of rapid growth, we are now seeking a Town Planner, with experience, to join a reputable and thriving Planning Team. It's a great opportunity to join this close-knit, well-respected, and successful team.

Based in Garforth, East Leeds, you will already have some experience working as a Town Planner, in either a private or public sector setting - and be suitably qualified from an academic perspective.

The Role

The position will involve managing planning project work in-house, as part of the team. This will involve initial site appraisals and evaluation, preparation of written reports and statements and submission of all planning application documentation.

It will also involve meeting and negotiating with Planning Officer's and any/all parties involved in the planning application processes and being involved in Planning Committee and Appeal situations, as required.

As a result, you will need to be able to take ownership of projects - some planning experience within local authority or private sector, is therefore necessary.

Candidate Requirements
  • Experience in a Planning role of no less than 2 years.
  • MRTPI Chartership or working towards.
  • High standards of written and verbal communication.
  • Ambitious, self-motivated but also a genuine team player.
  • A keen interest in the full land and planning process.
  • Full UK driving licence.

Why Apply?

For the ideal candidate my client is happy to offer a competitive starting salary as well as an impressive benefits packing that includes an annual digressionary bonus scheme and generous annual leave allowance!
