Like Netflix? Fancy securing planning permission for them? Elevate your career and work on projects you're unlikely to find elsewhere with this Planning Consultancy.

The Role

You would be joining the firm as a Senior Planner.

No project would be off limits to you. All the work the firm do is high end and bespoke but the interesting projects like the film set work (for Netflix, Fox and others) isn't held back for the seniors.

The phone rings with new enquiries every day so you would be responsible for going out and meeting with clients to get a brief on their proposals. You wouldn't be expected to have all the answers, but the MD would expect you to be able to handle yourself independently with new and existing clients. This wouldn't be expected of you right away and there is lots of support available from the MD and senior team.

You would also have a caseload of applications to work on. This work is mainly for high net worth individuals who want to make the best use of their land and properties. Also, the support and mentoring are there should you want to develop your own client base. This might not be something you are eager to do at this stage in your career, but the MD was keen to stress that the mentoring as and when you're ready.

Salary would be dependent on experience and I'd need to speak with you to give you an accurate estimate. Ballpark figure would be £30-45k with a 10% over target bonus (i.e. you keep 10% of anything earned over your fee target).

About you

You’re a Town Planner with 2-10 years’ experience gained in either the public or private sector. You’re chartered or clearly on course for chartership in the near future.

If you’ve not worked in the private sector before, don’t be put off! The owner and other senior staff will be there to support you and teach you everything you need to know to get up to speed.

What matters is your drive, ability to converse and negotiate with clients and willingness to go out on your own and take responsibility.

The Company

The company are a well-established Planning Consultancy. They’ve got a great reputation- so good that all the work they do currently is inbound. The phone rings all the time and their books are overflowing with genuinely exciting projects.
