"I find my mentor meetings really important and the emphasis on self reflection helps me to evaluate my career and think more strategically about the types of projects I should try and get involved in.

Passing my L-APC will be the first major milestone in my planning career as it will affirm that I have gained the right skills and knowledge and enable me to take advantage of further career progression opportunities."

I am a Graduate Planner within Arup's Planning, Policy and Economics team in London. As a member of a team within a large multi-disciplinary design firm, I have had the chance to work on a variety of development management, policy, research and masterplanning projects. So far this has been as varied as researching links between planning mitigation and climate change, undertaking public consultation for a large infrastructure project, progressing planning applications for the Olympic Park and contributing to a new masterplan for a city in South Africa. I feel lucky to work at a company where this level of variety is possible and think it will provide me with a good foundation for my career.

I would like to continue to work in private consultancy as I enjoy the diversity of work but also would like to begin developing a masterplanning specialism. Following my experience of work in South Africa I would also love to work abroad and gain some international experience.
