Associate Planner – Birmingham

Posted on: 09/01/2017 ~ Company:

A unique opportunity has presented itself with a leading Planning Consultancy based in the Birmingham City Centre for an Associate to join an expanding team.

We are looking for a fully MRTPI qualified individual who has experience operating at the Associate or Associate Director level. Senior Planners on the cusp of becoming an Associate, and who have the right experience will also be considered for the role. With an enviable book of clients this reputable firm works with some of the UK’s most prestigious housebuilders and commercial developers, property companies and landowners. There is a focus primarily on residential, and mixed use schemes which includes large scale application works coupled with strategic work and smaller schemes.

A great believer in personal development this consultancy has a culture of promoting internally, with the majority of its directors having originally been Planners or Senior Planners upon originally starting. The ability to bring across clients would be a bonus, but not a requirement as the team are currently very busy with a large pipeline of work. However, you must be able to build and develop client relations as well as enjoy aspects of networking.

An excellent understanding of local planning policies in the West Midlands area and experience working on residential schemes will be needed, ideally attained in a consultancy environment. We will consider looking at those with a client-side or development management background at a similar level as long as they have a commercial mind-set. Relocators are also an option should they be able to show good knowledge and understanding of the area and its policies as well as a commitment to the move.

To apply for this role please do not hesitate to contact Kyle Lynch for a confidential conversation. We aim to get back to all applications; however, due to the volume of applications we receive, we are not always able to do so. If you have not received a response within 4 – 5 working days, please assume your application has not been successful this time round. We will confidentially retain your details and will not release any information without your express consent, having first consulted you.
