Urban design jobs

W5 Resourcing Associates Planning and Urban Design department has been running successfully alongside Landscape Architecture for a number of years.

With a healthy mix of both dedicated Planning Practices and Multi-Disciplinary Consultancies, we work across the board with the majority of UK RTPI and Urban Design Group Registered Companies.

Urban Design is the design of towns and cities, streets and spaces. It is the collaborative efforts of Urban Designers that shape the physical setting for life in cities, towns and villages.  Once the designs are finalised, the Town Planning process manages the development of land and buildings to save what is best of our heritage and improve the infrastructure we depend on for day-to-day life.

We recruit for various positions from Graduates through to Associates and Directors within these industries including:

  • Planners at all levels including Graduate, Middleweight and Senior
  • Chartered MRTPI and Associate Planners
  • Urban Designers from Graduates to Senior
  • Directors of Planning and/or Urban Design
