Burnetts' planning team's continued success has called for further expansion.

We cover a wide geographical area with offices in Carlisle, Penrith, Cockermouth and Newcastle upon Tyne. The successful candidates will ideally be based in either Carlisle or Penrith, though there is some flexibility with this.

We have two exciting opportunities for candidates to join our busy planning team in the roles of Planning Consultant and Planning Paralegal.

Planning Paralegal

The successful candidate will support the Planning team on a daily basis.  Daily tasks will include:

  • Setting up new matters and dealing with compliance tasks;
  • Assisting the Planning Consultants as required;
  • Using our case management system;

The successful candidate will ideally be a law graduate or able to demonstrate knowledge and experience of planning matters.

Applicants for both roles need to be committed, enthusiastic, and enjoy working in a busy and demanding environment. The ability to work on your own initiative as well as part of a team is essential together with excellent communication, promotional, and organisational skills.

Both planning roles are ideally full time (37.5 hours a week), however flexible working suggestions will be considered.  In return we offer the opportunity to be part of a forward-thinking firm, a great working environment, a competitive salary and additional benefits. 

The salary for both roles will be based on qualifications and experience. 

If this is the right role for you and you are ready to join our team, please send a copy of your CV with a covering letter to Kate Sowerby (HR Officer) at yourfuture@burnetts.co.uk.
