Planning magazine reports that the demand for more housing is bringing a wealth of openings for experienced planners.
"It's a brilliant time for planners beacuse there's a national shortage," says Anna Rose, the POS Senior Vice-President. "It's really a planners' market in terms of those who have experience or who have been stuck during the recession and are now able to move."
Rose suggests that even those not applying to a graduate programme should probe potential employers about career development prospects. "Because it's a planner's market I would suggest asking those very relevant questions about training and mentoring," she says.
