Penguin Recruitment

£25000 - £35000 per annum + Excellent benefits package

A highly regarded, national consultancy in the North East is interested in hearing from Town Planners regarding an exciting opportunity in their Newcastle office.

Join a busy and successful office that is made up of a small, friendly, and sociable team of eleven planning professionals and support staff. In this role, you will have access to a genuine variety of clients and projects that span many sectors such as residential, commercial, employment, mixed-use and renewables.

Duties and responsibilities include promoting medium to large-scale developments through the Local Development Framework. You will conduct research and site appraisals, prepare planning and occasionally socio-economic statements, lodge appeals and potentially appear at Informal Hearings. Part of your role will include co-ordinating internal and external project teams and project management/QA, preparing Local Plan and Neighbourhood Plan representations. In addition, you will act as a mentor to junior colleagues.

In order to apply, you should hold strong planning experience working on similar developments, ideally within Yorkshire or the North East region. You should be MRTPI qualified or working towards it.

A demonstrable commercial mindset is required, as is an ability to work with minimal supervision. As with any planning role, excellent written and verbal communication skills are prerequisites. The role may require some travel so a full UK driving licence and a willingness to travel for work is required.
