Job Description

A progressive opportunity has arisen for a Senior Planner or Associate Planner to join a well-respected consultancy in London. You will be working as part of an established team based in their West End offices. This organisation has a national presence and a great client base making this role a fantastic option for progression and project exposure.

We are looking for MRTPI qualified candidates with consultancy backgrounds. We can consider Senior Planners or Associates who are confident client facers. Your workload will include a good variety of projects including large scale work within the retail, residential, commercial, mixed-use, environmental and healthcare sectors. Retail experience is particularly sought after (including RIA experience where possible). Candidates with knowledge of the London and South East market are advantageous but this is not essential and relocators will certainly be considered.

Your role will require you to provide expert town planning advice to your client base offering a consultative approach to problem solving and helping to deliver schemes to deadlines. You will be preparing and submitting planning applications, writing planning statements, advising on planning policy, preparing retail impact assessments/sequential tests (software and support is provided if this hasn't been a large part of your role before), mentoring and supporting junior members of the team, growing your client base via business development activity, site visits (a driving licence is required) and advice to other multi-disciplinary teams in the office and wider planning team where required.

You will be rewarded with a competitive remuneration package to be made up of base salary, a generous car or car allowance, desirable benefits such as gym membership and private health care as well as a generous bonus scheme. Salary/package is negotiable and will be based on experience. There is no limit to progression here so there is partner potential further down the line, no cap on bonuses, new client incentives and no limits on promotions.

For more information on this role and/or to apply please send your CV (which will be treated in the strictest of confidence and never sent to any client without fully briefing you and gaining your permission) to Ruth Hoggett (
