Are you an ambitious Associate or Director who has hit a ceiling in your current team? Are you ready to progress your career?

I have been asked by the National Planning Director to assist in their search to find their new Head of team in their West End office. Due to the current incumbent being brought in-house by a client, there is an urgent need for someone with management experience and strong business development skills. With an impressive track record across London and in their teams across the UK, this consultancy has particular strengths in commercial, retail and industrial sectors, as well as Central London mixed-use and residential schemes.

You will need to be in a senior position currently, billing within a consultancy-environment, ideally bringing some clients with you – although if you are keen to hit the ground running with their existing clients and look to build up in due course, they would be open to this due to the current workload.

Ideally you will have experience in:

  • Client management and liaison, networking
  • Business development and experience in preparing bids and tenders
  • Invoicing, dealing with budgets and targets
  • Managing a team and mentoring through APC
  • Knowledge of the London and South East

The work will be throughout London and the South East, so having experience in the region is key.

You will be given the reigns to a successful and ambitious team, with a supportive environment for entrepreneurial types. A competitive package, opportunity to hire or bring along team members quickly, and corporate yet forward-thinking environment will be your reward for working there.

Interested? 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.
