I have been asked by an ambitious London-based developer to find their new Land and Planning Director to lead on the planning for a major Central London scheme.

Your role will also involve you giving advice on upcoming proposed sites and schemes currently in construction.You will be in a position of autonomy, reporting only to the MD and in conjunction with Project Directors for relevant sites. You will need a good track record in the residential sector, although ongoing and future schemes do have mixed-use elements. There is scope for a second hire at Senior planner level to report into this position.

Your role will include:

  • Strategic management of all town planning aspects of current ongoing and future sites.
  • Liaising with key stakeholders and influencers to run engagement programme alongside planning
  • Manage external consultants and specialists to co-ordinate planning applications
  • Advise Project Directors and MD on whether to buy upcoming sites and what potential there is

You will be rewarded well in terms of package and bonus, and work in a collaborative and design-led environment where your expertise will be crucial to the future of the business.

Sound like you? 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.
