These projects will require planning policy, development management and project management skills, underpinned by a sound commercial approach and judgement. Other experience in areas such as economic development and analysis, environmental assessment and consultation strategy is desirable, but not essential.

  • Provide professional and technical support to the Senior Director responsible for growing the company's public and private sector and public/private sector partnership portfolio across the Midlands, South and South-west of the country;
  • Draft reports, technical papers, minutes of meetings etc;
  • Prepare tender submissions, fee estimates and quotations;
  • Ensure that client projects are managed effectively and efficiently, and in line with industry and company best practice;
  • Assist in the maintenance of knowledge management and information systems in relation to tender processes and wider marketing initiatives, liaising with the Marketing Director and Public Sector Business Development Group, as appropriate;
  • Build knowledge and experience in required practice areas through continuing professional development, internal, and external, to the company

What you'll need to succeed

  • Significant experience from a leading planning and development consultancy in two or more of the following environments: public sector planning and development advisory; planning policy and development management of major urban development schemes; project management of multi-disciplinary consultancy teams; development consultancy; specialist advisory, including economic development and economic impact assessment;
