Job Details

It’s January.

The Lindor box is empty. The last turkey curry has been made. The decorations packed away for another year. And people have forgotten how drunk you were at the Staff Christmas party… 

The Christmas bubble has well and truly been burst, and I’m sure it was an almighty shock to the system when the piercing sound of your alarm thrust you into the day this morning.

The return normality is something I have been craving, but if you’ve sat there over Christmas dreading the thought of logging back in to work then maybe it’s time for positive change.

This firm is offering the opportunity to be intellectually stimulated on a continued basis, within an environment that is built around giving staff the exposure to top tier projects. 

Picture this. 

Nestled in the heart of London’s West End, a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Carnaby, Oxford Street and Piccadilly Circus - this spot couldn’t be more ideal for lunchtime jaunts, client meetings or even a spot of shopping.

While located in London, your work will see you working on a national scale, from the sunny South coast of England to the Scottish Highlands for some of the biggest names in both Sport and Education, and the delivery of major new masterplans nationwide (400,000 units across the UK to be precise!). 

Your workload could include anything from working on redevelopment projects for some of the biggest and most iconic names in Racing; or on behalf of the Country’s top universities on new educational facilities within Heritage sites, and Listed buildings; or on a Sustainable Communities Initiatives nationwide. 

With a dedication to working on projects of the highest quality, and in turn producing First Class work, this is an opportunity to get your teeth stuck into. Your professional growth will reach new heights with the existing team in the best possible place to nurture you along a path of development. 

“Expect good exposure from day one. You’ll be busy from the get go and it’s the kind of environment where you wouldn’t be scared to make a mistake or ask for help from the senior member of the team” – Current Principal Planner at the Firm. 

While no huge emphasis will be placed on personal billings at this level, you will have the opportunity to work on business development skills, being trusted to represent the consultancy in front of long standing clients.  

Let’s be honest, you didn’t get into Planning for an easy ride. It’s really not a profession where you can sit back and cruise through. But it’s easy to fall into a repetitive trap, where perhaps you aren’t as challenged as you’d like to be. 

If you want to leave Groundhog Day in the past, and jump into this fruitful opportunity give me a call on 020 7766 9015 and ask for Ettie to find out more.
