We specialise in rural and heritage focussed planning, regeneration and diversification with over half of our current work load in residential schemes.  Classic rural experience is not critical however, enthusiasm, intelligence, passion and the ability to deliver the innovative and inspiring work we are so proud of are essential to this role.

Applicants will need a strong commercial understanding, excellent communication and proven negotiation skills and the competence and confidence to deal with a range of planning activities such as submission of applications, promotion of sites through the development plan system, evaluation of land use options and impeccable client handling.

Rural Solutions works throughout the UK with a wide and varied client base with diverse land and property interests.

We offer a very competitive salary and benefits commensurate with experience and the opportunity for career progression and CPD.
