Urban Designer and Graduate Urban Designer

Altrincham + Flexible

Planit, a place-based design practice, is seeking an Urban Designer and Graduate Urban Designer to join our team in Altrincham, Greater Manchester.

We developed within Greater Manchester, and the Altrincham studio is the practice’s headquarters.

You will have the opportunity to be part of a diverse team shaping ambitious projects, design strategies and solutions to meet the challenges of social inclusion, economic regeneration, the climate crisis and regenerative design. Building on a number of successful city-wide strategic urban design projects in Sheffield and Leeds, and after recently winning a number of exiting commissions for large strategic urban design work in Stockport, we are keen to build on this success and grow our Urban Design Team within the northern region.

To qualify for these positions, you should possess a post-graduate qualification in Urban Design and be interested in working at the strategic scale. Although not essential, having a design-based first degree would be a distinct advantage.

If applying for the Urban Designer position, we’re looking for someone with at least 3 years of post-graduate experience working in a creative practice.

You should also demonstrate an understanding of strategic thinking and design, have a passion for urban design and regenerative practice, and have strong drawing and presentation skills.

You’ll enjoy working as a team and in a collaborative studio environment, be self-motivated, engaged and creative.

We are an Employee-Owned business, committed to standing alongside clients, communities, and nature to shape meaningful places and explore regenerative futures. As one of the first B Corps of our type in the world, we prioritise people, planet, and profit equally, and welcome candidates who share these values.

We support our team by providing benefits that include a minimum of 25 days holiday plus bank holidays, flexible start and finish times, hybrid and flexible working, company pension, enhanced maternity and paternity pay, support with professional fees, CPD, and an annual study trip allowance. There are opportunities to work and collaborate across our UK wide studios.

We are an inclusive workplace that values diversity, and welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
