You will be a town planner who has a detailed experience of working on residential planning applications. Ideally you will have a good working knowledge of the south west region and understand the current policies in these areas.


You will be either currently working for a developer looking at making a career move, a planning consultancy and looking to make your first move across to the developer side or alternatively currently work at a house builder as a planner.


You will be a bright, articulate and ambitious planner who wants to take control of the planning function.
