I am exclusively working with a boutique London developer based in the West End, who have a number of major schemes at Planning stage. Due to increasingly workload and a number of bids out on potential sites, they are now seeking a new Head of Planning.

While this role is head of department already and reports only to the M.D., there is a straight path to directorship. The team is small and lean, using a number of external consultants, so having experience of managing these will be key. You will be strategising and getting ongoing permissions through for the team, as well as assisting Development and Land colleagues with assessments and planning advice.

The developer has schemes in the pipeline across London, ranging from 200 up to 1000 units, and while residential-led, often have a mixed use element to continue with their success in this field.

Ideally you will have at least eight years in industry, currently with a developer, HA or consultancy in a senior Planning role. You will need to have worked with LBs and be skilled both in negotiations as well as dealing with the public at consultation.

In addition to a professional and sociable office, you will be rewarded competitively, with good bonuses and a clear path to progression.

Please apply here, or give me (Kate) a call on 0203 056 6282 at any time. My client is looking to get the right person on board ASAP so please do contact me as soon as you can.

If you do not hear anything back within one week, please assume that you have been unsuccessful on this occasion, but I will retain your details for future roles.
