Building a career as a specialist residential development and town planning recruiter
Having started recruitment in 2013, I have established teams at previous firms, and drawing on Cobalt’s longstanding success in Planning, I endeavour to build successful teams for clients across the markets I focus on - Residential Development and Town Planning (including Land, Development and Strategic Land).
Over the years I have recruited into and continue to work with housebuilders, developers and consultancies – working with and headhunting Land Buyers / Agents, Development Managers / Surveyors and Town Planners, from Graduate up to Senior Director across sectors, particularly in the Residential world.
I give honest, knowledgeable and consultative advice to both clients and candidates – which can often prove invaluable when developing a team or career.
Why she loves it
I just like making people happy – whether it’s a good career move for someone who never leaves, or a step up in projects or responsibilities.
As an LGBTQ+ community member, I seek to promote DE&I to improve retention and growth at my clients, removing bias, and pushing inclusivity and change from the ground up.
Food, film, festivals and more!
Outside of work, I am a foodie so try to visit new restaurants and try various cuisines, as well as being a huge music and film fan – often at a gig, festival or the cinema. I also love travelling to new places abroad, sampling the local culture (and food!).

The best thing about working at Cobalt is the collaborative nature in the business and culture of sharing and teamwork. Not every role sits in one neat little box within my own industry sector, and it’s a good feeling to be able to count on colleague’s support and expertise when you need it most.
Chris Sycamore - Associate Director
I love that you can go into any Cobalt office anywhere in the globe and know it's a Cobalt office, not by the branding or the set up, but by the approach of the people to doing their job, the fact that you are greeted like a (welcome!) family member and a genuine desire to learn and develop.
