Are you seeking an opportunity to lead the planning team within a luxury residential developer based in Central London?

A luxury residential housebuilder, based out of their HQ in the city, who are a 30 man outfit offering something a little different and more boutique than a lot of the competition. They acquire sites in both Prime and up-and-coming locations, serving the requirements of both the luxury development and PRS arms of the business, are incredibly well-financed and have a healthy project pipeline.

Due to substantial growth within the developer and numerous bids out on potential sites, they are seeking a new Planning Director. The team is small and lean, using a number of external consultants, so having experience of managing these will be key.

  • Assist the land team with the compilation of planning associated fees for feasibility purposes and assist them to assemble the full planning application project team
  • To co-ordinate and chair, when necessary, all planning related meetings including pre-apps and design meetings

  • At least seven years experience within the industry
  • MRTPI (or equivalent)
  • Ambition and ability to lead a growing team
  • Demonstrable track record of leading major development projects and managing multi-disciplinary teams

Within this company not only will you will receive a generous salary and package, there is also a clear path for progression and the ability to create a whole team around yourself.

Please apply here or give me (Alice) a call on 0203 056 0286 to discuss. I am looking to find the right candidate as soon as possible - so if in doubt, do get in touch.
