Job Description

Are you a chartered town planner in Birmingham looking for a rewarding role with plenty of variety, large scale projects and flexible working as standard? A market leading firm are expanding their planning team and are looking for a Principal planner and an Associate to join them, based in their city centre office.

This firm are offering an incredible variety of work ranging from city centre regeneration and commercial/mixed-use schemes as well as residential/strategic sites, education and industrial/logistics work. They also have robust framework agreements with the likes of Homes England, MoD and various universities that give an interesting and varied workload. Projects range in scale but include a lot of large scale schemes so you will have excellent exposure to really nice sites and clients as well as giving you the CPD and support you need to progress quickly.

We are looking for MRTPI qualified planners operating around the Principal or Associate level. We are looking for two people around this level. You will ideally have some consultancy experience but local authority backgrounds from the Midlands region will also be considered for the Principal role. The roles offer both development management led work and more policy/evidence based work so again good variety, we would be looking for experience in both areas ideally. At Associate level you will be able to demonstrate a good contact base and have business development as a regular part of your role. At Principal level you will be establishing your contact base and doing some business development activities. Both levels should be comfortable leading on medium-large scale projects.

The team are very sociable and active in the industry networking circles, it is a fun place to work as well as rewarding and an excellent name for your CV. They are also great with flexible and agile working, being one of the first bigger names to provide this as standard. These are ideally full-time positions but we would consider a reduced week for the right candidates.

You will be rewarded with a competitive remuneration package including benefits such as car/allowance, private health care, life assurance, enhanced pension plus a strong bonus scheme.
