Planning Lawyer Jobs
We have worked hard over many years to build extensive relationships in the Planning & Environmental Law sector. We handle recruitment assignments from Planning Partner to Paralegal across the UK, in Private Practice, In-house and are fortunate to work with leading names in the sector.
The depth of relationships that we hold with key stakeholders is our strength and we often advise on the strategic viability of assignments at their inception. This leads to advanced notice of vacancies coming onto the market, often with exclusivity. We have helped new Partners at firms build their team with further hires, but also regularly assist heavyweight planning practices with talent mapping and expansion.
Committed to placing candidates in Planning Solicitor Jobs
We have a strong track record of advising candidates looking to either begin or advance their career in Planning and Environment Law. Often this begins at NQ level where we regularly provide advice to trainees who are looking to qualify and if necessary, we find them an external role. We also work with Associates looking to make a lateral move and Senior Associates who may be looking to advance their career. We also provide trusted advice to Partners seeking career guidance and we have brokered many high-profile moves. We are also proud to say many former candidates are now clients.
We cover the full sphere of planning law vacancies arising in teams handling major infrastructure projects, development projects, environmental issues and including all planning application matters arising. This includes Section 106 agreements, Compulsory Purchase Orders, Highways Agreements, Judicial Planning Reviews and Planning Appeals. We believe our relationships speak for themselves and we are always keen to build more. Therefore, do get in touch if you would like some advice on the market for Planning Law roles or if you would like to discuss your ambitions and goals.
"I was really impressed with Stuart’s knowledge of the planning law sector - his expertise is unrivalled and he is always up to date on latest developments in the market. He helped me make the move from private practice as a senior associate to in-house lawyer seamlessly and he gave excellent advice throughout the process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stuart to any planning lawyer considering a move." - Claire Rees In-house Lawyer
"Stuart assisted me brilliantly to find a role in a fairly specialised area in a challenging market. As opposed to other recruiters, it was obvious Stuart was looking out for what was best for my career, and his advice reflected this. He was always positive without giving false expectations, and had a structured plan in place going forwards. It is obvious he has fantastic contacts - not just in firms' HR departments, but importantly with partners too. It also helps that he's a genuinely nice guy. I couldn't recommend him highly enough."
