Job description.

I am working with one of the leading privately owned strategic land promoters that is looking to strengthen the team with a planning manager
You will report directly into the group planning director but work autonomously on managing existing planning applications through outlined and detailed consents. You will oversee a team of 4 but work closely with the land buyers.
You will be an experienced town planner who has managed and run teams of planners previously and be used to operating at senior management level to provide direction and leadership to the wider business.
Ideally you will have worked for either a house builder/ residential developer or a strategic land promotion company where you would have played a key and important role in managing complex town planning applications
The client is a mature and grown up environment with a low head count where everyone just gets on with their job. They offer flexibility in working arrangement but its expected you would be in the office for meeting 2-3 days a week.
