Before working at GJP, I didn’t realise how much managerial control I’d have as a planner – but you’re involved in the whole process here, from start to finish, and you’re trusted with a high level of responsibility from the get-go.

“Despite the rise in hybrid working, we all choose to work from the office. It’s a great work/life balance.”

“To be a planner, you need perseverance and determination to get projects over the line – when that happens, you feel so proud of it and get such a good feeling.”

James Scarborough, Planner at GJP (Geraint John Planning)

James

“It’s a good work ethic, hard working but relaxed, and you know you can rely on your team members if you need them.”

At GJP you’re constantly learning on the job and pick a lot from your colleagues. You’re assigned your own tasks and responsibilities early on, which is the best way to learn the ropes!

“I just thought I’d email to let you know that I received all my marks for my placement year assignments last month (finally!).

I also got to read my employer report so thank you for the kind words and amazing mark.

With the employer report, my presentation, and written assessment I averaged 90% for my placement year which I’m over the moon with.

Thank you again for having me.”

– Tia Fishlock, after spending a placement year working at GJP
