Levvel is a leading specialist housing consultancy with a successful 14 year track record. Our small, friendly, independent-thinking team has an enviable client list of developers, house builders and public sector clients. Because of this we are able to develop your skills and rapidly expand your experience in this exciting business sector. An increasing workload both at home and abroad means we want to expand our team and therefore we are looking for all levels of housing and planning consultants.
Development Consultant - The successful applicants will be responsible for supporting the team in planning negotiations, interrogating a range of economic and housing data, development appraisal modelling and presentation of planning policy arguments. It is expected that the successful candidate(s) will be able to work in a team environment and be able to adapt and communicate their research to different audiences. It is likely the successful candidate will be working towards gaining a professional status.
Senior Consultant - The successful applicants will be managing projects and clients. They will engage in housing supply and viability planning negotiations, development appraisal modelling and presentation of planning policy arguments. Senior consultants will be expected to present evidence at planning appeals as an expert witness. Hence a demonstration of professional experience is required, though a wide breadth of projects and/or membership of a professional institution.
We would also be interested to speak to more established, experienced housing professionals to work on an Associate basis.
