Job Details

The global climate summit has taken centre stage of headlines over the last week, and the pressing need for change to habits at a global, national and personal level is ever apparent.

Buying a chilly’s flask, walking to work and remembering a bag for the food shop is great on an individual basis, have you ever had a look into the sustainability approach of your current employer?

This socially conscious developer spanning decades of success, has an exciting opportunity for a Senior Development Planning Manager to join their their Land and Communities team.

If you’re a Senior Planning Manager, or an experienced consultant, looking to really make a difference to the greater good within the Northwest and beyond, then this could be your next step.

You’ll need a proven track record in leading and delivering complex large scale development projects through the planning process, including Policy representations, EiP participation, preparing and submitting planning applications and S106 negotiations, and ideally MRTPI.

The Planning team is specialised in taking a holistic approach to projects, going beyond the black and white basics of churning out application after application. Project delivery is community focused, with residential schemes embracing a bespoke approach, breaking away from trends set in the 20th century that generally have yet to be questioned. When modern development can identify as placemaking, you know you’re onto a winner.

This approach enables a capitalisation on a community’s assets, with the goal of creating public spaces that facilitate a positive impact on health and mental wellbeing with a certain focus on access to nature, ecology and green spaces.

You’d be working as a Senior Planning Manager for a company with a core desire to develop sustainably, taking huge efforts to honour their social responsibility and in their continued successful portfolio of development.

If this sounds of interest, do give me a call on 020 7766 9015 (ask for Ettie) to find out more.
