I am working closely with a well-established consultancy in the Manchester area, looking for someone to join as an Associate Planner.

This close-knit team have delivered on a variety of projects across the country with a reputation for maintaining standards of excellence.

You will be offered support in your development with the opportunity to hit the ground running with existing clients, whilst generating new business in your sector of choice.

  • Continuing to maintain relationships with clients in providing accurate advice and communicating effectively

  • Dealing with pre-apps and manage planning applications through the development process

  • Communicating and negotiating with clients, stakeholders and local regularly

  • Business development and working up your own client base, or bringing your own

  • Be MRTPI or equivalent

  • Be a strong communicator with excellent written work

In reward for the hard work, you will receive a competitive salary and benefits package, as well as ongoing training and being part of an excellent team and company to progress you in your career - where hours you work are not as important as the quality of output in what you do!​
