Our work is both challenging and rewarding – helping forward looking clients to deliver great places for the future, engaging with multiple stakeholders and delivering results through positive working.

We pride ourselves in having a flexible, positive and supportive working environment. Our ways of working fully reflect the needs of today’s society, with options to work hours that suit the individual, in a flexible way to respond to current ways of living. We have a business model that can work with both individuals as direct employees or as external like-minded Associates.

We offer an unrivalled opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues, gain exposure to a range of interesting work areas, and overall to develop your career in planning and quality placemaking.

We are always keen to talk to practitioners who can add both value and additional capacity to our service.

We operate a flexible working approach with all the support you need to work remotely and successfully. As part of growing our business we anticipate operating from ‘hubs’ in Birmingham, Milton Keynes and Manchester. Having suitable access to a ‘hub’ location would be advantageous – but not essential. You will need to be highly motivated and a self-starter, able to work directly with and for a range of clients.

Sole Practitioners & freelancers

A key part of our approach is to work with like minded professionals, blending skills and resources to provide the best solutions to clients.

We are also always keen to work with other sole practitioners, freelance planners and urban designers to collaborate across projects. We can provide flexible working opportunities either related to specific project needs as they arise, or on a more regular basis, enabling individuals to work with us in a way that suits their own circumstances.

Please get in touch if you are interested in joining our network and working on a wide range of exciting projects.
