Graduate Programme 2019

Graduate Recruitment Programme 2019 – Applications now open!

Established in 1991, DLP Planning Ltd is one of the UK’s leading independent planning consultancies. A national business with a local focus, we work in teams to provide advice to a very wide range of clients across a variety of sectors, including residential development of all scales; commercial development; environmental assessment; heritage; energy and renewables; design and public sector support. As part of the DLP Group, we also work with colleagues across disciplines such as architecture, master planning and urban design; heritage; neighbourhood planning; drainage design and flood risk assessment and transport and highways.

The schemes we have led and worked on are wide ranging – we are delighted to have been involved with developments such as the ‘Gatecrasher’ nightclub redevelopment in Sheffield, the Suffolk Park Business Park’ development in Bury St Edmunds and the former ‘Barracks redevelopment’ at RAF Brampton (to name but a few). We have eight offices around the UK and our presence in Bristol, Nottingham, Sheffield and Bedford/Milton Keynes are continuing to grow very strongly. We are also soon opening offices in Leicester and Birmingham.

There has never been a better time to join DLP and as such, we are very excited to announce that our Graduate Programme for 2019 is now open for applications.

We currently have vacancies in the following locations:

Bedford, Bristol, Nottingham and Sheffield

Whether you have just completed an RTPI accredited Masters, or are seeking work experience whilst you do so, we would welcome a conversation with you. Here at DLP, we offer our graduate’s experience of working on a wide range of projects under a mentoring programme tailored to meet your individual needs. With a dedicated mentor and management support, we will also ensure you have the guidance you need to progress your career at your pace. A career with DLP will provide you with an excellent grounding as you complete your studies, or if you are taking your first step towards completing your APC, as we offer continuous support and the opportunity to work on the variety of schemes to enable you to become a Chartered Planner.

Our staff are very much at the heart of what we do and we recognise and reward individuals for their talent, ability and performance. There is no glass ceiling – we fully support the development of our staff and as such, some of our top performers have joined the firm as graduates and are now Associate Directors and Directors.

Outside of the office, we enjoy staff away days, team trips and encourage networking and Continued Professional Development. We are proud to offer staff market leading salaries, benefits packages and the opportunity to really progress; the sky is the limit.
