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 recruits a diverse range of experienced built environment practitioners who are interested in working in the public sector.

HOW IT WORKS

After a multi-stage selection process, Associates are matched to a placement working in a local authority, 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, landscape architecture, surveying, development, architecture, community engagement, urban design, masterplanning and project management. Associates will be expected to have a minimum of three years’ experience in practice.

WHY JOIN THE PROGRAMME

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, a return to work after a career break, or to give something back towards the end of your career.

APPLY TO BECOME AN ASSOCIATE

We run two placement programmes a year, starting in April and October. Applications are now open for candidates to apply for placements starting on 1 April 2020. The deadline to apply for our next cohort is midday 25 November.

ATTEND AN OPEN EVENING

We host a number of free public evening talks around our recruitment windows to showcase the influential work our Associates and Authority hosts are doing. Details of our upcoming talks and to get a ticket can be found via our Eventbrite page here.

SUBMIT AN APPLICATION

Before applying we strongly recommend all applicants read our FAQs Guidance document thoroughly and ensure they are eligible to apply. The first stage of the application process is submitting an online form. Those successful at the online stage will be taken through to stage two of the application process, a day-long placement workshop.
