Associates

We believe that working in local government is the place to be if you want to use your built environment skills to influence every aspect of our everyday environment and to work for society as a whole, not just those who can afford it.

PROFESSIONAL PLACEMENT PROGRAMME

Public Practice is recruiting experienced built environment practitioners who are interested in working for the public good.

HOW IT WORKS

Selected Associates are given 12 or 18-month placements on the frontline of public planning, with a salary of £30,000 – £70,000 depending on the Authority and role. 90% of your time is spent working for the host Authority, with the remaining 10% dedicated to attending the Public Practice R&D Programme. This programme is designed to help support Associates transition into their new roles within local government as well as co-produce resources to help share and develop good practice within the industry.

WHO CAN BE AN ASSOCIATE

We accept applications from candidates with a wide range of skills and experience across the built environment, including planning, placemaking, surveying, development, architecture, community engagement and regeneration. Associates will typically be expected to have a minimum of three years’ experience in practice.

WHY JOIN PUBLIC PRACTICE

You may be looking for a new career challenge, an alternative route into the public sector, a temporary secondment to experience working in the built environment from a different perspective or to give something back towards the end of your career.

APPLY TO BECOME AN ASSOCIATE

Our latest call for candidates to apply to become an Associate starting 1 October 2019 is now open and will close at midday on 3 June 2019.

The first stage of the application process is submitting an online form by the 3 June 2019. We are hosting a number of Open Evenings prior to the deadline for submission to answer any questions you may have:

Around half of these short-listed applicants will be put forward for a match and if successful will be informed of a placement position by 12 July 2019.
