The location planning industry in the UK has been established for a number of decades and there are hundreds of location planners plying their trade for a range of companies both in the UK and overseas. Whether you work for a consultancy, a retailer, telco, bank or in public sector this is your opportunity to contribute to the most definitive anonymous survey of its kind for location planners.
Established organisations such as the SLA (Society for Location Analysis) and the SPR (Society for Property Research), the long running RLA (Retail Location Analysis) course by Said Business School, numerous books on the subject, and a range of university courses that focus on location analysis all help with a sense of community, sharing of knowledge and best practice – however there is very little published information on the careers of location planners.
Red Tiger Consulting, in consultation with the SLA, have launched an online, anonymous survey that will establish an authoritative view on the industry from a salary and benefits perspective. This is the first of a number of initiatives by Red Tiger Consulting to establish a research programme dedicated to Location Planning from a talent and skills perspective.
