I am half way through my placement year at Adams Hendry and I am enjoying being part of such a friendly and supportive company. I have been involved in a variety of projects from Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects to small residential developments. This has given me experience in conducting planning history searches, policy reviews, writing planning statements and submitting planning applications. I have received support from two mentors which has been helpful and was very reassuring when I first started, and everyone else in the office is really approachable too. I have enjoyed the staff social events including a summer picnic and an afternoon at the races. I have also attended a Women in Planning event organised by two colleagues and at my suggestion attended an RTPI Heritage Planning event in Winchester, which I found interesting and informative. If you are looking to work on a wide variety of projects, for a friendly supportive company in a beautiful city then I would encourage you to apply to Adams Hendry.
