Planning Portal partners with RTPI to promote planning recruitment through The Planner Jobs

The Planner Jobs, the official jobs site of The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), is one of seventeen jobs sites run by Redactive. In a drive to promote planning vacancies online, The Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) has joined forces with the Planning Portal, the home of the national planning application service for England and Wales.

Established in 2002 and previously part of government, the Planning Portal processes more than 2,000 applications through its service each working day, making it an essential business tool for planners in the public and private sectors.  Since it has been privatised it continues to look for new opportunities to add value for its customers, either by partnering with market-leaders or by developing new products and services.

Sarah Chilcott, Commercial Director at Planning Portal, said: “We’re delighted with this partnership with the RTPI which means that we can promote The Planner job vacancies through our site.  Planners in private practice and at local authorities are key customers for us and a tie-up with the biggest publishing brand in the planning industry makes perfect sense for them.”

Phil Pluck, managing director for the Royal Town Planning Institute, said: ‘Working with the Planning Portal will give professionals in the built environment the opportunity to view the best planning jobs in the market on the official job board of the RTPI. RTPI members are highly sought after by employers and employers looking to recruit qualified planning professionals will have access to a strong pool of highly targeted candidates as a result of the Planning Portal and RTPI collaboration’.
