Who are you?

You’re a confident, capable, and driven Solicitor, and more importantly, a geek for all things Planning.

They have clients involved in developments all over the country, but primarily in London and the South East.

Your role

This makes for a collaborative working environment, in which you would be encouraged and given the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to the team and its business development.
