TOWN PLANNER ALL-LEVEL JOB DESCRIPTION
Planning a better future for our communities
Bring your skills to the table as a Town Planner in our diverse and friendly national Planning team. You'll work in a dynamic multi-disciplinary environment, collaborating and learning within Atkins teams and businesses across the UK and worldwide. We're big on expertise but not on hierarchy. So, we'll trust you with more responsibility faster, supporting you to progress and lead on an exciting variety of major infrastructure and development projects.
You might know us for the great work we do across our huge variety of projects. It's thanks to our people's combined diversity of thought, expertise and knowledge that we can continue to make a difference worldwide. And when you join us, you'll be a part of this genuinely collaborative environment, where everyone's voice is valued and treated equally.
Welcome to Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group
You'll join one of the UK's leading planning consultancies at the forefront of thought leadership in sustainable infrastructure and development, from Net Zero to ESG, Biodiversity Net Gain and digital transformation. Progress with your career interests across Energy and Water companies, Environment Agency, National Highways, Homes England, High Speed 2, Ministry of Defence, DLUHC, Network Rail, Transport for London, Transport for the North, West of England Combined Authority and the GLA and many others such as LEPs, local authorities and private developers. Our colleagues also lead international development work for funding institutions and government bodies.
Flexible working is part of our culture, so talk to us about your priorities inside and outside work. You won't need to sign up for a 9-to-5, five-day week, full-time contract. Our office spaces can accommodate quieter individual work or team working where you can connect and socialise. And if being based at home suits you better, our IT systems will make your days just as easy and effective. If you have important personal responsibilities, just need to wait for a delivery or to service your car, Atkins will work for you.
We currently have opportunities in Warrington, Sheffield, Manchester, Leeds, London, Birmingham, and Bristol.
