I have thoroughly enjoyed my career with Lichfields to date, in what is one of the country’s largest planning offices.
The work is varied and interesting and we have contributed to many of the region’s most significant, ground-breaking developments over the years.
Lichfields is a firm which never rests on its laurels as we constantly seek to boost our client and project portfolio, and I look forward to contributing further to this work in my new role.
