Planning consultancy NJL has hired three graduate planners in its North West operation.
Aqib Saghir, previously of Peel Land & Property, is joined by Katarzyna Gotlibowska, who joins from Arena Global Management and Andrew Strachan, who joins direct from university.
NJL has taken space at That Space on Princess Street in Manchester city centre to support its main office at Ashbrook Office Park near Manchester Airport, with the aim of enhancing its ability to work on city centre-focussed instructions and offer staff more flexibility to their working day.
Michelle Rothwell of That Space’s developer and operator Watch This Space said: “NJL’s move shows how forward-thinking firms can see the logic in multiple locations and different office environments to meet their needs.”
Nick Lee, managing director of NJL, added: “This is part of a wider plan for the business and underlines our belief in adapting to the needs of clients and staff on a proactive basis.”
With graduate planner Adam Masters joining the Leeds office to support Nick Pleasant, the headcount at NJL now stands at 16.
