Masterplanner/Urban Designer - Cirencester

In recent years EDP has developed a reputation for excellence in  ‘Environmentally-focussed’ masterplanning for residential and mixed use developments, achieving notable planning consents on a number of challenging sites. Our success means that our portfolio of masterplanning projects is now too substantial for the existing masterplanning team and so a key opportunity has emerged for an ambitious and capable individual.

Overseen by a senior Masterplanner, the role will include the production of all typical masterplanning services, including: feasibility appraisals; concept schemes; urban design appraisals; morphology studies; preparation of public consultation materials and stakeholder events; Design and Access Statements; design codes, sketch layouts and masterplans.

This position offers the right candidate an opportunity to develop their masterplanning skills by working closely with our existing team of experienced masterplanners and learning directly from the other core disciplines within this office. EDP firmly believes in supporting and developing its team members and considers this role a significant opportunity for someone to assist us in expanding our masterplanning team and to see their own career progress as a result. The salary for this post is to be agreed based on qualifications and experience and will form part of an excellent benefits package including pension, private health insurance, 30 days annual leave allowance (+ bank holidays) and profit share bonus scheme.
