30 years’ experience. We are a national company that is growing exponentially with customers throughout England. One of our unique selling points is that we can help our clients with every phase of their projects including planning permission, architectural design, building regulations, project management and construction services. While we do residential and commercial projects our core business is residential developments such as extensions, loft conversions, garage conversions, new builds, change of use, appeals etc.

You will advise the client verbally and using a template complete a planning checklist for each client. The sales team will quote every customer and for each project won you will be responsible co-ordinating the preparation, submission and management of the application with the support of a planning assistant.

You would join a team of experienced planners and enjoy a great variety of projects giving you an opportunity to learn and progress or specialise if you excel in any specific areas. There is plenty of scope for rapid progression for the right applicant.

The role is a home based so there is a degree of flexibility but hours of work are generally speaking 09.00 to 18.00 Mon to Friday. Your income will be a combination of retainer + performance related pay for each planning appraisal and project. As minimum you must be able to take at least 3 planning appraisals each day plus submitting and managing your applications.

Knowledge, Skills and Experience Required:
