Location: Cambridge, Chelmsford, Norwich, and potentially other locations
Salary: Dependent on position and experience
Type: Permanent Full-time
Lanpro has an ambitious plan for growth in which we are seeking to extend our planning team regionally and nationally. This includes growing our share of existing markets we currently operate in and new ones; and to shape our services to meet the needs of our clients. Continuing to grow and develop planning and our other services, is a key aspect of this plan. The planning team works closely with our other services in architecture, urban design, landscape, heritage, and archaeology. Our continued growth in all sectors including strategic scale residential, employment, leisure and renewable energy projects across the UK provides opportunities to both travel and make a difference locally.
We would like to hear from town planners wishing to gain experience after graduation; planners with 2 to 6 years’ experience and are looking to progress to the next stage of your career; and those of you who are in senior level positions but wish to take on greater responsibility and are looking for a steppingstone to a Director level role. We work across all stages of small- and large-scale projects in a range of sectors. We are looking for team players.
Your role with us may include:
Providing support to senior staff on exciting projects
Running your own projects including project management of teams of consultants
Collaborating with our multi-disciplinary team and other external consultants
Managing client and ‘key client’ relationships
Attending client meetings and general contribution to the development of a multi-disciplinary business
