This is a really excellent opportunity to join a busy business that has ambitious growth plans to expand over the next few years. You will be joining a multi-disciplinary team of planning professionals, architectural designers and surveyors and will play an essential part in the next generation of the business. In terms of projects, you will be involved in rural schemes, bespoke developments for land owners, imaginative projects for community usage and rural hospitality & leisure work. As a business, they have become well known for offering consultative planning advice, guidance for clients on how to navigate their way through the complex planning system and a high success rate in achieving consent. Working closely with the architecture & surveying teams, this consultancy offers their clients a full range of support.

The ideal candidate will have a passion for rural development and a strong desire to develop their career within a growing practice. You will be comfortable demonstrating a sound understanding of the planning system and have some examples of work to show this.
