CAG is looking for new partners with planning and engagement expertise
The co-operative is looking to expand and is seeking two new partners with high levels of professional and business skills and experience. Partners will need to be senior professionals who have experience of winning consultancy work and who are comfortable developing and managing a portfolio of work within the partnership.
We are seeking a new CAG partner who can broaden and expand our existing planning offer, which is largely public-sector focused and includes SEA/SA, consultation and evidence base studies for new policy. We would be particularly interested to hear from those with experience in advising private sector clients, particularly with regard to energy, waste and transport projects. RTPI membership is essential.
Stakeholder and community engagement specialist
We are also seeking a new CAG partner to develop and expand our engagement offer, which is also largely public-sector focused. We are looking particularly for those with skills and experience in:
- Designing and delivering pre-application community consultation programmes for housing and/or energy developers
- Designing and delivering other community and stakeholder consultation programmes for public sector and private sector clients
- Integrating social media and other digital resources into engagement programmes
If you are interested in either of these opportunities, you can contact Gerard
Couper or Tim Maiden (contact details below) for an initial discussion
