Planning, Development & Regeneration Recruitment.


Supporting Local Authorities and Housing Associations With Their Staffing Needs.

With demonstrable expertise within Planning, Development & Regeneration recruitment, we support hundreds of Local Authorities, housing associations and private sector organisations with their staffing needs. 

Through an extensive understanding of the market and proven reliability of delivering on multiple projects, we’re a trusted supplier of permanent, executive and senior interim contractors. 
The planning, development and regeneration of property portfolios is one of the principal strategies of councils and housing associations. However, extensive talent and skills shortages are critically inhibiting their plans.   

We understand how important it is to keep projects on track - and on budget - which is why we use a diligent search methodology to source candidates who are experienced in managing complex planning and development issues, policy trends and any legal processes related to the project. 

Not many recruitment agencies will understand the complex nuances of the planning, development & regeneration sector which is a common frustration of candidates dealing with such agencies.  
Our network of experienced professionals trust us to understand the industry and connect them to the best career opportunities quickly and efficiently. It’s the reason why they return to Spencer Clarke Group time and again.

Solutions to Meet Your Needs.

Despite the importance of recruiting top talent, we understand that the whole recruitment process is a job which you could probably do without.

Even for jobs which attract good applicants, the whole recruitment process, from posting the job to sifting through applications and arranging interviews, can be challenging and time-consuming.

With our contingent recruitment service, it enables you to find the quality candidates which you need while allowing you to focus on other responsibilities.

To get the best outcome, we recommend that clients use the contingency service on an exclusive basis.

No pressure

Finding you the perfect candidate is our number one goal so there is no pressure to hire unless you are perfectly satisfied.

Save time

Sifting through irrelevant CVs taking up too much time? Simply tell us what you’re looking for and we’ll narrow down the search, leaving you to engage and interview the most suitable candidates.

Peace of mind

With client satisfaction at the heart of what we do, you can sit back safe in the knowledge that you’ve got the best people on the job.

With difficult to fill roles, rural locations or business critical hires, a robust and thorough recruitment process is absolutely essential. 

In these scenarios, we usually find that the perfect candidate is already in employment and not actively searching for a new position.

This requires us to adopt a totally different methodology compared to other ‘traditional’ recruitment methods.

Our retained ‘headhunting’ solution is the most comprehensive service we offer. Working exclusively to fill your role, we’ll leave no stone unturned in the search for your perfect candidate.

Recruitment Solutions

Rigorous methodology

Discovering and reaching out to passive or diasporic talent is just one of the ways we go above and beyond standard search processes.

Fully tailored

When you’re recruiting at a high level, candidates must be ticking every box. From aligning with the company culture to skills and attitudes, our search will be fully tailored to your individual requirements.

When working on a retained basis, we are fully committed to the process until the position is filled. We like to think of our retained clients as partners so your success is our success.

Sometimes a business will require short-term hires to step in during time critical projects, periods of fast growth, seasonality or maternity and sickness leave.

Despite being short-term hires, usually 3 - 12 months, finding candidates who can quickly understand the job - and do it well - is crucial.

For private and public sector businesses who are searching for a bespoke and flexible recruitment service, our temporary and interim recruitment service is the perfect solution.

To some businesses, the security of having an agency on hand to deliver quality candidates at a moment's notice is a huge advantage. 

Business growth


When time is of the essence, we’ll pull out all the stops to find the right candidate. We’ll even ensure candidates are fully compliant before starting their new role. 



You can rely on us to source temporary and interim employees to help you scale when you need it most.

Sometimes a business will require a large number of employees to join them on a temporary or permanent basis.

Often this can happen when the business is experiencing a period of growth, has a new project or if they are opening a new branch in a different location.

Consolidating your recruitment needs through one dedicated agency is the most advisable solution; we’re effectively working as an extension of your existing hiring team.

Our Multi Hire Project solution offers an extremely viable solution, either on an exclusive or retained basis - simply tell us what works for you.



By tapping into our extensive pool of talent, including candidates not registered with other agencies, we can deliver the deliverables in a time frame which suits you.
