VIRTUAL EMPLOYER ENCOUNTERS

The next Virtual Encounter will take place on THURSDAY 11th NOVEMBER 2021 (4:30pm) and the theme will be:

CAREERS IN TOWN PLANNING

A town planner helps communities, companies and politicians to decide on the best way to use land and buildings.

A planner’s main aim is achieving sustainability. This means balancing different social, environmental and economic issues when official decisions are made on whether a piece of land is built on or not. Another way to describe this job is 'making places', such as towns, for people to live and work. Planners do not construct buildings but recommend how and where buildings should be built, what they should be used for and how they should fit into the local surroundings. Our About planning guide gives you a taster of what you could do.

Planners are known by many names

• Town and country planners
• City planners
• Land use planners
• Spatial planners
• Urban designers
• Environmental planners
• Development planners

There is a huge current and future demand for Town Planners in Hertfordshire and across the county. This webinar will allow you to hear directly from Town Planners and to learn about the different entry routes into the career.
