03 Jan Senior/Principal Town Planner | Birmingham | Major Projects
Senior or Principal grade Planning Consultant required for large consultancy in Birmingham, working on major projects across residential, commercial, environmental and infrastructure related projects.
Whether you are a private sector planning consultant looking to work on large, challenging and exciting projects or a local authority planner looking for your first position in consulting, this could be the opportunity for you.
With attractive, centrally located offices and fantastic travel connections, this position would suit Birmingham city dwellers and commuters from across the west and south midlands region.
Given the size of the company, projects are large and the ethos of the business is to ensure that all professional staff are immersed at the forefront of projects from day one. Professional development is key and a great deal of effort and attention is paid to your personal growth and success. From Senior Planner upwards you will be liaising with clients, mentoring and leading junior staff and encouraged where possible to develop new business leads.
Typical work streams will include:
- Planning studies, reports and proposals
- Site appraisals and client meetings
- Planning applications and supporting statements
- Policy reviews and assessments
- Development plans and local plan reviews
- Stakeholder engagement from clients through to local authority planners, external consultants and the general public
Ideally, you will have a development management background (public or private sector) but applicants from a policy background are welcome as working knowledge of planning policy and development plans is also very desirable.
You must have a minimum of 2 years’ post qualification experience and ideally be RTPI chartered but if you are still on the chartership pathway, my client is experienced and successful in mentoring staff through the APC process. People with up to 7 years' experience would be ideal for this position given the structure of the existing team.
In return our client will offer the successful candidate a competitive salary with excellent benefits package and a positive working environment.
