Planning Manager jobs

At Cobalt Recruitment, we can put you in touch with UK house builders, retailers, developers and investors who need help growing their in-house teams.

The private sector continues to go from strength to strength with both consultancy and client-side planning manager roles increasing in frequency. Our Town Planning team is being instructed regularly by developers and house builders creating opportunities for both Chartered Planners (MRTPI) and those on the APC pathway to make the move client-side.

Working in-house poses a unique challenge for town planners. Our clients are looking for professionals with commercial acumen and solid communication skills, as you can be involved throughout the process from considering acquisitions through to the completion of a build. Whilst you may be tasked with taking the lead on planning applications, you will also be responsible for the management and appointment of planning consultants.

We are particularly interested in working with successful planning managers who have a superb knowledge of planning legislation and excellent organisational skills as our clients need planners who are comfortable overseeing planning progress on numerous sites and assets.

Are you looking to add to your team?

If you are looking to grow your in-house planning function then we would be delighted to assist you. Our team has a superb track record of success helping retailers, developers and house builders to strengthen their Planning function and are able to bring forward the right individuals for at all levels of seniority. Utilising executive search methods and our own database we are able to present you an array of options should you be considering adding Town Planning to your in-house functions or if you are adding to an existing team.

The next step

Whether you are a dedicated planner considering the move client-side or an ambitious organisation wanting to hire the best planners then we have both the experience and resources to assist you in your search.

Please contact our Town Planning team on 0161 457 0105 and they will be happy to help you. Alternatively you can search for jobs or register with your CV.
