Increased Demand across Planning Jobs Market

29 May by


With the announcement this week in the Queen’s speech, of more regionally devolved planning powers, we predict an even greater demand for talent across the planning jobs market.

At ALLEN & YORK, for the last 6 -12 months we have seen a huge rise in demand for talented professionals across the Planning, Surveying and Architecture sectors.  We are working with consultancies, local authorities and planning practices throughout the UK who have a growing number of recruitment requirements, all of which they need to fill, yesterday!

The strengthening of the UK economy, coupled with confidence in infrastructure projects such as HS2, onshore wind farm developments and increased house building, in-line with the government’s forthcoming ‘Right to Build’ policy, have all contributed to a significant ramping-up of planning activity.

As housing, transport and renewable energy projects are green-flagged, our Planning & Built Environment team have been asked to recruit for a wide range of planning jobs across the breath of the UK.  From Edinburgh to Brighton, Cardiff to Leicester - Graduate to Associate – we’d love to hear from you. 

Salaries are strong, as employers look to attract the best talent in a competitive market and the truth is, there has never been a better time to look for a new planning job!
