Associates walk together during their induction to the Associate Programme

The Associate Programme

Our Associate Programme is a leading job placement scheme that recruits mid-career and senior-level built environment professionals into placemaking6 roles in the public sector.

We provide our Associates with a supportive network and training, and we match public sector organisations with Associate1s specific to their needs.

If you’re a candidate unsure if the Associate Programme is right for you, take our Eligibility Quiz to learn more before starting your application.

We want to find the right fit for both the candidates and the public sector organisation.

Public Practice is uniquely positioned to act as a facilitator between local authorities struggling to find the right skills for their team and built environment professionals seeking to transition into the public sector but finding it a hard process to navigate.
