Your next role

It’s time for the next step.
You’ve earned it.

SPD Studio do things differently.

All Planners want to feel valued.

And yet so many feel overlooked, undervalued and disappointed with their years of gruelling training translating to a job that doesn’t reflect.

SPD Studio do things differently.

A team made up of Designers, Architects, and Technical Engineers – they are looking for an experienced Planner to join their growing Planning team. Someone to share with them the collective pride of working for a fiercely ambitious studio that combines sustainability and development all under one roof.

Under their umbrella company of ‘Push’ sits 7 businesses, from SPD Studio themselves, to building contractors, project construction, solar asset management, a residential housebuilder, and solar and battery project construction.

They are innovative and entrepreneurial.

A one stop shop in property. And you’d be at the forefront of it, bringing projects to life.

In this link you’ll find the brochure I have prepared for the role:

With a healthy pipeline of projects across residential, commercial, and solar being brought forward, this is a rare gem of an opportunity, with so much more on offer than a day job.

Advising on strategies for major developments, coordinating with internal and external teams on applications, maintaining knowledge of local and national policy, leading negotiations with local officers, and working alongside their in house architects and engineers to bring forward projects in a timely and efficient manner.

Opportunities like these don’t come about often. The standard of work is high, but this doesn’t give way to a toxic environment.

Deadlines are set with realism and fair expectations, and personal goals are set and backed up with reason and reassurance. Their staff members truly feel valued, and it truly comes across in the way they talk about the company.

Don’t believe me? Read for yourself.

Having met with Parisa Shahnooshi, Architect at SPD Studio, she was bursting with pride when talking about her experience with SPD. Here: “I am given way more responsibility and trust, as well as the freedom to make mistakes and learn from them. I have a real say in the process, and there is value in my voice”.

They are a vibrant and energetic team, all getting on like a house on fire. From sponsored charity walks, through to office Bake Offs, and of course a pub trip or two in the summer – whatever your preference you will be welcome here.

So, what’s next? If you’re ready to make a move, or if this has evoked a spark of interest – don’t hesitate to get in touch.

We would like to attract talent from all corners of the Property world for this role. Our commitment is to an equitable recruitment process so feel free to apply in any way that suits you, via WhatsApp, video message, CV, the more creative the better.

Applications for this role are closing Wednesday 16th November so please get in touch ahead of then.
