Planning Jobs Update Winter 2015


Planning Jobs Update Winter 2015

Time to get your advent calendars out, it’s the quick run in to Christmas.

Again? Already? You may think.

Whilst Christmas does dominate this time of year, so does something else. In the ten years I have been recruiting in the Town Planning market I have found that this is the very best time to start looking for new jobs and to begin interviewing for your ideal career move.


Well firstly, most Planning firms are busy business planning and this means that you will know whether you believe in your firm’s business plan or not. Do you trust your boss and the plans they have for your future development…. Secondly, the business plans of your competitors may very well be more exciting than your own… Thirdly, ask yourself how you will feel about describing your role to your friends and family over the Christmas break. Everyone wants to know how your job is going… If you find these conversations difficult it is probably because you are not enjoying your current role as much as you should. Maybe it is time for a change. The final factor to consider is that this run in to Christmas is probably the best time to be able to attend interviews. Yes we are all busy but how many of us have accumulated unused holiday which must be taken before Christmas? If you do it is possibly because you have been working TOO hard this year for too little reward and recognition…
