City of London
£ 40,750- £46,150 including London Weighting (depending on performance/experience)

A number of opportunities have arisen to join the Planning & Development Division at the City of London following expansion of the Design Team. The City of London prides itself on providing certainty in fast-changing times and is seeing a strong pipeline of fascinating and high-profile development.

The City of London is the historic and commercial core of the Capital and a world leading financial centre. Planning in the City reconciles growth and development with stewardship of a unique historic environment to create world-class sustainable places, requiring a holistic approach to design and conservation. The City has unrivalled opportunities to be at the cutting edge of architectural design and sustainable change to historic buildings and places. It is our aspiration to make the City a greener, climate resilient, attractive, and inclusive place for all. If this aligns with you, then we would like to hear from you.

We would particularly welcome applications from candidates with backgrounds in architecture, landscape design and historic building conservation.

The post holder would provide urban design and conservation advice on the management, evaluation, and negotiation of a wide range of planning and listed building consent applications, and where necessary formulate and articulate alternative design solutions to balance landscaping, architectural, urban design, and conservation issues. There would be opportunities for the post holder to contribute to the development of policy in these areas.

We are looking for built environment professionals who are passionate and innovative in their approach to delivering high quality design and have an ability to think holistically, embracing landscape, biodiversity, public realm and the wider sustainability agenda. With a flair for detail, you would also be able to see the bigger picture, being creative in finding solutions and agile in leading negotiations and delivering results.

If you have any questions, please feel welcome to call us in confidence to discuss the post, contacting either Joanna Parker (07842 601189) or Tom Nancollas (07842 601186).
