What's on offer?
  • The high possibility of equity sooner rather than later (based on a meritocratic system!)

  • Negotiating with the relevant government authorities and stakeholders
  • Preparing all of the necessary administrative elements for VCAT appeal
The ideal candidate?
  • Proven experience working in the Victorian planning system for circa 3-5 years (flexible)
  • Exceptional attention to detail in producing accurate, quality reports
  • Greenfield AND Brownfield experience ideal but not essential
  • Subdivisions experience of a larger scale would be beneficial but not essential
  • A mixed public and private sector background would be desirable
  • Urban Design knowledge would be a plus
  • VCAT administration - desirable but not essential
  • Most importantly, you will be passionate about planning and specific elements of planning
The successful candidate will be chosen due to the personality and ambitions rather than solely due to experience or their CV. This will suit somebody who is hungry, driven and entrepreneurial.

The Director has a great name in the market and they enjoy an ongoing pipeline of good quality, large scale projects with a prestigious client base.
